Weight Loss Drug Lawsuit | NY Injury Lawyer

Frank J. Dito, Jr.
Car accident, personal injury and workers’ compensation attorney serving Staten Island and Brooklyn New York.

In order to lose weight some men and women use weight loss pills in order to achieve their weight loss standards. There are some pills that are safe to use for weight loss but there are other pills that can be dangerous to your health.  Most people who are searching for a weight loss supplement, such as a weight loss pill, may be led to believe that all weight loss pills available for sale are safe to take - especially if they are sold in stores - but this can actually be untrue sometimes and many of the people using certain weight loss pills may find this out the hard way unfortunately.

Over the years there have been many weight loss pill recalls. Below is a list of just some of the major recalled weight loss pills there have been and the dangerous side effects certain weight loss pills can have on your body:

  • Alli Weight Loss Drug - Liver injury and liver failure
  • Xenical Weight Loss Pill (also known as Orlistat) - Liver injury and liver failure
  • Meridia - Heart attack and stroke
  • Fen Phen - Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH)
  • Hydroxycut - Liver injury and liver failure

This is by no means the end of the list of recalled and dangerous weight loss pills but this does give you an idea of how dangerous some of them can be.

Often times it is not reported that certain weight loss pills are dangerous until years after they have been on the market which often leaves many people with health problems they would have been able to avoid it the manufacturer would have warned them.

If you have suffered from health problems, particularly heart problems or liver problems, caused by weight loss pills contact Frank J. Dito Jr. New York injury lawyer to find out if you have a lawsuit against the weight loss drug manufacturer. Call 718-701-2776 or fill out our online contact form to set up a free consultation.
