Tysabri has been causing an increasing number of patients to develop progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). PML is a rare and often fatal infection of the brain. The risk of developing PML increases with the number of Tysabri infusions received. There is no known cure for PML.
While Tysabri was intended to help those with multiple sclerosis or Crohn’s disease, the effects of PML are so devastating that Tysabri can end up destroying or even ending the lives it was intended to help. If you’ve been harmed by Tysabri, filing a lawsuit to seek compensation for damages is your right. Our firm has extensive experience in pharmaceutical law, and for over 25 years we have helped those who have been harmed by dangerous drugs and pharmaceutical companies seek compensation for their injuries.
Answers to Common Questions About Tysabri Lawsuits
Do I Have Grounds for a Tysabri Lawsuit?
If you, or a family member, have been diagnosed with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy as a result of taking Tysabri, you may have grounds for a Tysabri lawsuit.
How Do I File a Tysabri Lawsuit?
The first step to filing a Tysabri lawsuit is to contact us. After you’ve contacted us with a request to file a Tysabri lawsuit, we will send a packet to you that includes a questionnaire, a letter of medical authorization, a letter of representation, and a contingency fee agreement. A contingency fee means that you will only have to pay us if your Tysabri case reaches a settlement or a verdict in your favor.
Throughout the entire process, our attorneys and staff will work with you to make sure you are kept informed of every development in your Tysabri lawsuit and that all of your questions are answered.
What Will Happen When I File a Tysabri Lawsuit?
When you file a Tysabri lawsuit, a process of gathering information and evidence about your case begins. This process is known as “discovery.” During discovery, either party may obtain any information that relates to any issue in the lawsuit that is not privileged or protected. This process may involve written answers to questions that are called interrogatories, or statements taken under oath known as depositions.
In Tysabri cases, evidence subject to discovery might include medical records confirming your diagnosis with progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy and pharmacy or medical records that prove you were prescribed Tysabri.
A significant number of lawsuits are settled out of court after the discovery process. If there is no settlement in your Tysabri lawsuit, your case may go to trial.
Your Tysabri lawsuit may be handled either as an individual case or in a single case with other individuals who have also been harmed by the product. These group cases are known as mass torts. Even if your case is handled as a mass tort, you and your case will still receive personal attention from our staff and attorneys.
