Do I Qualify for a TDF Lawsuit?

If you suffered serious complications from using a TDF drug, such as Tenofovir, you could have the legal right to pursue compensation for your injuries. While monetary compensation cannot reverse the physical damage Tenofovir caused, it can help you ease some of the financial struggles you are facing. To qualify for compensation in a TDF drug lawsuit, you need to have taken one of the TDF brand drugs and developed subsequent injuries linked to Tenofovir use. If you develop any of the conditions mentioned above, then you could be eligible to file a lawsuit against Gilead.

What Types of Compensation Are Available in a Gilead Lawsuit?

If you suffered one or more of the severe side effects linked to Tenofovir drugs, then you could potentially recover the following damages:

  • Medical expenses to date;
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation,
  • Future medical treatment and costs;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of earning capacity;
  • Travel expenses to and from appointments;
  • Psychological therapy costs; and
  • Vocational and occupational therapy costs;

These damages are known as economic damages, which means they are quantifiable costs. There is a dollar amount that can be attributed to these damages. You could also be eligible to collect some non-economic damages. Non-economic damages are more subjective and do not necessarily use mathematical or scientific methods to reach a figure. Possible non-economic damages available in a Tenofovir lawsuit include:

  • Physical pain and suffering,
  • Loss of enjoyment,
  • Mental anguish,
  • Depression and anxiety, and
  • Loss of companionship.

In limited circumstances, some claims can include compensation for punitive damages. Punitive damages are reserved for cases that clearly demonstrate gross negligence. It is possible that punitive damages could be awarded in a Gilead lawsuit.

If you lost a loved one as a result of Tenofovir use, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim.

This list is not exhaustive as to the potential damages you could receive in a lawsuit against Gilead. Your Tenfovir lawsuit attorney will advise you of the damages you are likely to recover and whether punitive damages might be available in your specific situation.

Hiring a Tenofovir Attorney to Help with Your Case

Pursuing damages for injuries caused by Tenofovir drugs can be a challenging process. You need a skilled lawyer who has extensive experience with dangerous drug cases. At Gerling Law, our legal team will build a strong case to support your claim for damages. Our goal is to help you recover the maximum compensation possible. We can achieve that by gathering evidence that proves liability against Tenofovir's manufacturer, Gilead.

You can assist by gathering all related documentation we will need. Hold on to all paperwork and proof that shows your history of using TDF drugs. Also, keep copies of medical bills, doctor's reports, pay stubs, and any other evidence of your injuries.

Don't fret if you don't have all this information already on hand, as we can issue subpoenas to obtain the rest of your documentation. Once we have enough documentation and evidence, we will start assessing the extent of your damages.

In a case involving a defective drug-like Tenofovir, it's crucial you retain an attorney as soon as possible. We need as much time as possible to gather evidence. There is a statute of limitations we need to be mindful of as well. The statute of limitations is the legal deadline you must adhere to in any type of case. If you file your lawsuit after the deadline has passed, the court will likely dismiss your action, and you will not receive any compensation at all.
