Hydroxycut lawyers are defective drug attorneys committed to advocating for the rights of those who have sustained serious injuries (or families who have lost a loved one to a wrongful death) as a result of taking the weight-loss supplement Hydroxycut. In May 2009, following a warning issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Iovate Health Sciences, the distributor of Hydroxycut, announced that it was going to voluntarily recall 14 Hydroxycut products, including:
- Hydroxycut Regular Rapid Release Caplets
- Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Rapid Release Caplets
- Hydroxycut Hardcore Liquid Caplets
- Hydroxycut Max Liquid Caplets
- Hydroxycut Regular Drink Packets
- Hydroxycut Caffeine-Free Drink Packets
- Hydroxycut Hardcore Drink Packets (Ignition Stix)
- Hydroxycut Max Drink Packets
- Hydroxycut Liquid Shots
- Hydroxycut Hardcore RTDs (Ready-to-Drink)
- Hydroxycut Max Aqua Shed
- Hydroxycut 24
- Hydroxycut Carb Control
- Hydroxycut Natural
Despite this recall, however, Hydroxycut has caused a number of individuals to be seriously injured and at least one to suffer a wrongful death.
When to Consult with a Hydroxycut Lawyer
Should you or a loved one develop any of the following side effects after taking Hydroxycut, it’s crucial that you first seek medical attention. Once your condition has stabilized consult with a skilled Hydroxycut liver damage and recall lawyer to learn more about your legal rights and entitlements:
- liver damage or liver failure (To date, the FDA has received 23 reports of Hydroxycut-induced liver damage.)
- renal (kidney) damage
Hydroxycut injuries are serious, and there is evidence that highlights Iovate and others were aware of these side effects. They either forged or hid research in order to get Hydroxycut approved for sale in the U.S. Such overwhelming evidence, along with the testimony of experts, researchers, and doctors, is what skilled Hydroxycut attorneys use to build and win a case against Iovate.
Injured Hydroxycut users are invited to attend a complimentary initial consultation with a distinguished Hydroxycut lawyer to get their case started. To encourage them to follow through with a defective drug lawsuit, and to secure the maximum possible settlement award, Hydroxycut lawyers will not charge for their legal services until or unless a settlement is granted.
