Dietary, Weight Loss and Body Building Supplement Lawsuit
Work with Proven California Lawyers
Dietary supplements are heavily marketed to consumers as a beneficial component of a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, competitive market forces within the supplement, weight loss, and body building industries have caused supplement manufacturers and corporations to focus on their bottom line rather than the health and safety of consumers. In addition, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration exercise little control or regulation over dietary supplements.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a dietary, weight loss or body building supplement, or if you simply feel like you have been misled by a supplement manufacturer's fraudulent advertising claims, it is essential that you retain proven legal representation to assist you in pursuing lawsuits against negligent companies. We provide representation to all injured consumers, including those injured by the following dietary supplements:
Heavily marketed and readily available, energy drinks have saturated the dietary supplement market. While many initially questioned the risks these products posed, recent high-profile cases of heart attacks and death have drawn significant attention to the dangers of energy drinks.
OxyElite Pro is a "dietary supplement" created by USPlabs LLC. After a recent outbreak of liver illness in Hawaii, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the FDA expressed their concerns regarding OxyElite Pro and its potential side effects.
Steroids and Prohormones
Several studies have indicated that as many as 25% of legal dietary supplements contain banned ingredients. Substances such as steroids and prohormones can cause heart attacks, stroke and serious liver damage.
Over-the-counter and prescription testosterone boosters have been linked to serious adverse health consequences, including increased risks of stroke, heart attack, male infertility and liver damage.
Weight Loss Supplements
A multi-billion dollar industry, weight loss supplements make extravagant claims with little scientific support or federal regulation. As a result, there have been numerous reports of injuries and hundreds of product recalls.
Holding Negligent Corporations Liable
The dietary supplement industry has reaped the benefits of consumerism at the price of consumer safety. Focused on increasing their profits, weight loss and body building supplement companies routinely make unsafe products available to the public. Without much federal regulation to ensure the safety of consumers, our firm has realized that injured victims need experienced and aggressive advocates on their side.
Our attorneys are prepared to fight until favorable results are obtained and to ensure that negligent companies are held accountable for their actions. We have successfully resolved cases against large dietary supplement manufacturers, including a $4.2 million settlement on behalf of a client who experienced acute liver and kidney failure after using a supplement containing substances which are now banned by the federal government.
The settlement is believed to be one of the largest personal injury settlements to date involving the dietary supplement industry.
