What’s the problem?
Americans spend between $30 and 50 billion each year on dietary nutritional supplements and weight loss programs. Diet drugs are available through prescriptions from physicians or as over-the-counter supplements. There are countless forms of diet drugs in existence, and the safety of different drugs is variable. Some diet drugs that have received widespread attention include Fen-Phen, Meridia, and Metabolife. Each of these drugs has been linked to different health conditions including stroke, heart disease, headache, increased blood pressure, and even death.
Victims of diet drugs have had considerable success in pursuing lawsuits. In the first nine months of 2004, Wyeth Pharmaceuticals paid out nearly 500 million dollars in diet drug lawsuits related to fenfluramine, part of the diet drug Fen-Phen. Although no amount of money can substitute for the pain victims have suffered, settlements from dangerous dietary supplement lawsuits can be used to address medical expenses and prepare for a more secure future.
The decision to pursue an herbal supplement lawsuit is one that should not be taken lightly. In order for legal action to be successful, plaintiffs must have the best counsel available on their side. The right lawyer is one who is simultaneously understanding and knowledgeable. It is equally important that the client is comfortable working with the attorney.
