The antibiotic drug Tygacil (tigecycline) has been linked to an increased risk of death and a lower cure-rate than other antibiotic drugs. Although experts have known about this risk since 2010, a Black Box Warning label was not added until years later.

FDA Warnings for Tygacil
In 2010, the FDA warned that a study linked Tygacil to a 30% increased risk of death compared to patients receiving other antibiotic drugs. For every infection, Tygacil had a greater risk of death.
The risk of death was significantly greater for patients infected with ventilator-associated pneumonia, a disease Tygacil is not approved to treat. The FDA added a Black Box Warning about this risk in September 2013. Click here to read more.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our attorneys are not filing a Tygacil class action lawsuit against Pfizer, Inc. Instead, we are investigating new cases and filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who developed severe injuries or died after being treated with this medication.
About Class Actions
Class actions are beneficial when a lot of people have a very similar legal claim — for example, when thousands of people purchase a defective product and want reimbursement. However, class actions can have disadvantages for plaintiffs with severe injuries. Members are often forced into accepting higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Tygacil Class Action
Tygacil is associated with life-threatening injuries and death. Our attorneys believe that people who were injured and/or their family members deserve a personal legal representative to fight for justice on their behalf.
We understand that defective drugs can cause severe physical, emotional, and financial losses. This is why we always evaluate new cases for free and typically work on contingency-fee. If you decide to file a lawsuit, we can help you seek compensation for economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income or employment
- Past and future medical expenses
- Wrongful death of a loved one
- And more
