With my investigations searching for an attorney Ounders law firm was our choice... we had the most positive experience and outcome with the case Ounders law firm litigated for us. The advice and representation we received throughout the very difficult process was everything we hoped for and everything Ounders law firm promised us since day one

Randall Deemie


The Onder law firm is very dedicated at what they do, staff members are great! Dawn crutchley is always right on top of things

Sharron Williams


Having no other communication than email and one phone call, I have felt as though I mattered. Immediately a response and my case is only a fraction of thousands included within this lawsuit. So, imagine how much at ease personally I felt when I contacted them for several issues, those of which I needed clarification on. In a world where almost NO ONE seems to care, I now have found a renewed FAITH in humanity. I was contacted immediately and caught up to speed, asking very difficult questions and getting back truthful answers. Honesty, integrity and following through are also lacking in Society today, yet again, I am most appreciative and grateful for the sincerity and all the aforementioned qualities of the above regarding this FIRM. Thank you for ALWAYS returning my requests from giving you a change of telephone number, or a simple, or even complex issue. This in my opinion speaks volumes about Onder Law Firm, and ALL the dedicated personal who work tirelessly on behalf of their Clients! God Bless you ALWAYS. Thank you.

Kind people who have the rare gift that makes me feel like I am special, important and the only person who called at that moment.

I appreciate each of you.

What is Truvada?

There are two main medicinal components that Truvada uses to stop the replication of HIV-infected cells:

  1. Emtricitabine (FTC)
  2. Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate (TDF)

These two components help protect people that are in high-risk circumstances of being infected with HIV and — in tandem with other medications — can help control its development in those that already have it. These medications work by reducing the activity of an enzyme called reverse transcriptase, which is a particular enzyme that HIV-infected cells use to replicate.

By blocking reverse transcriptase, FTC and TDF prevent HIV from multiplying, and in some instances, can stop its growth altogether.

While this may seem like a wonder drug, TDF has recently been shown to be the cause of several kidney and bone complications, namely renal impairment, kidney failure, bone fractures, and bone density loss. In fact, around 20,000 patients taking TDF-based medications — which Truvada is one of them — have been diagnosed with kidney or bone diseases.

Other related medications which are causing similar complications because of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate include:

Despite the internal complications that TDF enables, Truvada has proven to be a success, earning Gilead $11 billion in profits on an annual basis.

How Gilead Sciences Inc. Deceived Users of Truvada

Aside from withholding important information regarding the dangerous side effects that users could experience from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Gilead committed a number of improper acts.

When the company created TDF-based medicine in the early 2000s, they also created another medicinal component called tenofovir alafenamide fumarate (TAF) that is just as effective as TDF-based medicine due to its smaller, safer dosage requirements.

In order to maximize profits, however, Gilead released TDF-based medications like Truvada first, and then decided to wait until the patent expired around 2015 to begin selling the TAF-based medicines as a “new and improved” formula.

Since 2001, Gilead knowingly marketed a drug known to cause serious side effects to grab as much cash as the company could, and then attempted to sell a better product when its patent expired in 2015.

Because of this, many users of their TDF-based products have developed bone and kidney problems that have cost them much more than medical bills.

Determining Liability in a Truvada Lawsuit

As with any product liability claim, a Truvada lawsuit attorney must be able to accurately determine whether the manufacturer, marketer, and/or distributor was liable for the victim’s injury. This process is no different for Truvada claims.

There are three types of product liability claims an attorney must consider:

  1. Strict Liability – Strict liability focuses on the product itself and if it had any particular defects that the manufacturer failed to inform users about. It is therefore left to an experienced product liability lawyer to prove this defect exists in the design, manufacture, or marketing processes that made it “unreasonably dangerous” and caused injury to the user.
  2. Negligence – To prove this type of liability, the maker of the product must not have provided reasonable care in the product’s design, manufacture, or marketing. Due to this lack of care, the user of the product —in this case, Truvada — was injured. It is then left to the attorney to link these aspects together.
  3. Breach of Warranty – This type of liability aims to prove that the product broke its warranty created by the manufacturer, essentially breaking its intended use and promise of safety which resulted in the victim sustaining injuries.

Once liability has been determined, an experienced Truvada lawsuit attorney can help you calculate the amount of compensation that you may qualify for.

Side Effects and Complications Caused by Truvada

Until recently, only a few of the most grievous injuries and complications caused by Gilead’s Truvada and other TDF-based drugs had been named. However, these drugs are capable of causing much more damage.

Since TDF-based medications require large doses to be effective, the excess is usually washed away through the kidneys. This can then cause:

  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Declining Kidney Function/Decreased Urination
  • Acute Kidney Injury
  • Acute Renal Failure
  • Fanconi Syndrome
  • Kidney Failure

Bone complications have also been linked to the use of Truvada, with symptoms like:

  • Discomfort in Extremities
  • Decreased Bone Mineral Density
  • Bone Deterioration or Osteoporosis
  • Bone Loss or Osteopenia
  • Dental Complications (e.g. Tooth Decay and Loss)
  • Bone Fractures

If you or someone you love has suffered from any of the above-mentioned side effects and complications after frequent use of Truvada, seek out medical attention immediately. Then, recruit Onder Law Firm to handle your Truvada lawsuit.

You May Be Eligible for Maximum Monetary Compensation

To secure maximum monetary compensation in your Truvada lawsuit, liability and evidence must be sound. When this is accomplished, your Truvada lawsuit attorney can help you retrieve compensation that covers:

  • Medical Bills (past, present, and future)
  • Lost Wages (past, present, and future)
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Decreased Quality of Life
  • Loss of Consortium
  • Funeral Expenses

Users of every race, age, and sexual orientation trusted Gilead Sciences Inc. to keep them safe when taking this TDF-based medication, only to have been deceived by the company for larger profit margins. You do NOT deserve to suffer at the hands of a greedy corporation.

How Onder Law Firm Can Help

At Onder Law Firm, our Truvada lawsuit attorneys fight with everything they have to help you secure the compensation you need to get your life back on track. In order to do so effectively, the collection of basic facts and evidence is important, including details about the product you used, including:

  • Serial Number
  • Model Number
  • Instructions for Use, Assembly, and/or Maintenance
  • Date of Manufacture
  • Product History
  • Regulatory Entities
  • Set of Standards
  • With this information in hand, our attorneys can seek out any prior product recalls, claims, and lawsuits made. A product label can give our attorneys the information they need to check the product history, and it can also prove whether the information contained on the label was illegible.

    Aside from this information, an incident report drafted by the medical center that treated you for the resulting complications can be used in your civil case.

    Our attorneys must move quickly in order to ensure that your claim is filed before the statute of limitations has lapsed. They will also need to gather a statement from you through writing or recording that is free of bias, factual, and to the point.

    When all of this evidence has been secured, the investigation process of your claim begins.

    Although our experienced attorneys are self-sufficient in winning your case, sometimes the help of outside experts is necessary to get a better understanding of the complications involved. Thankfully, we have fostered professional relationships with members of the medical, engineering, and scientific communities to help us better understand how your accident occurred, how it caused your injury, and how severe your injury is.

    If you or someone you love has been negatively affected by the drug Truvada, you may be eligible for monetary compensation. Reach out to Onder Law Firm at (314) 310-7924 to set up your FREE consultation with our Truvada lawsuit attorneys today.
