Hydroxycut Victims and Obtaining Legal Help

The drug Hydroxycut has caused at least 23 severe medical incidents, including one death, over the past year or so. The Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning regarding the drug and its severe side effects, causing the manufacturer to recall the product in all of its variations. Victims of the drug Hydroxycut should obtain medical treatment immediately, followed by an attorney consultation, to build a lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer. Aside from the 23 severe incidents known to the FDA there have been hundreds of other known cases of medical issues caused by the use of Hydroxycut.

Known Hydroxycut Victims

The most severe medical case regarding the use of Hydroxycut was the death of a 19-year-old male in the United States. The male, not named, died of liver failure caused by the use of the drug before he could obtain a liver transplant. There have been 23 other severe incidents caused by Hydroxycut that include damage to the liver, cardiovascular disease, kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, seizures, high blood pressure, nervousness, weakness, a rapid heartbeat, insomnia and excessive weight loss. Other incidents reported to the Food and Drug Administration are less severe but include the following:

  • Jaundice, which is the yellowing of the skin or the whites of the eyes
  • Nausea

  • Light colored stools
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Stomach or abdominal pain
  • Itching
  • Loss of appetite

Consulting with an Attorney

If you or a loved one has used Hydroxycut in the past, he or she should consult an attorney regarding their case. Consulting with an attorney should include the client telling their entire story to the attorney while the attorney takes copious notes. The client should also ask the attorney they are consulting with any questions they might have regarding Hydroxycut and its side effects. The victim of the drug should also consult with at least five different attorneys to determine which one is the best to represent them with their case. The search for an attorney can be performed on the Internet, in the Yellow Pages, or via word of mouth.

Building the Case

Once the attorney has been hired by the client, the attorney will set a legal fee as well as a travel fee for the course of the case. The attorney will then obtain the medical records of the client, which are vital to the success of the case. The medical records document how severe the medical condition is that the victim is suffering from, which can dictate how much money they should seek from the lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturer.

The attorney will also have the list of the items recalled by the drug’s manufacturer. The list includes the following items:
