Have you or a loved one been injured by Hydroxycut and interested in filing a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers of this drug?
If so, we can help. Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Defective Drug Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members that have suffered from liver damage, heart attack, or unfortunate death after taking Hydroxycut.

About Class Action Lawsuits
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees.
At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each clients recovery by filing individual Hydroxycut lawsuits on their behalf.
