The Fen-Phen Destruction

By: johnsonlawgroup
In the United States, people are remarkably quick to sue, and so often the court of public opinion finds the litigiousness of this country extreme and irresponsible. However, in the cases of the class action Fen-Phen lawsuits, the court of public opinion held quite a bit of outrage for the defendant.

Fen-Phen was responsible for more than 6 million Fen-Phen related illnesses, many which ended in disability or death, and the Fen-Phen class action lawsuits were a heavy handed message to the companies that manufacture weight loss products, supplementation, and over the counter energy products. Fen-Phen class action lawsuits are to this day still being filed, as it has taken years for the full scale of the medical effects to be understood.

While a Fen-Phen lawyer in your state can recommend and advise you of the litigation action available to you if you have taken Fen-Phen and are only now suffering the symptoms of a Fen-Phen related illness, many Fen-Phen lawyers will tell you that it is probably not too late to take legal action and file a Fen-Phen lawsuit of your own to protect the financial well being of your family.

In both past and lingering cases relating to Fen-Phen illnesses, the attorneys filing Fen-Phen class action lawsuits have successfully held accountable more than just the manufacturers of Fen-Phen products. After an initial request came through by the Food and Drug Administration in 1997, some Fen-Phen lawyers have successfully claimed that the retail sites where Fen-Phen products were sold should have removed the products from their shelves.

Recipients of Fen-Phen class action awards explain
there is no monetary compensation that can relieve a family of a chronic illness, disability, or lost loved one. Those who suffered Fen-Phen related illness or disease explain that people who are not affected by such incidents do not understand that Fen-Phen, which was supposed to be safe, has torn apart every aspect of their lives from the freedom to drive a car or go for a walk to their basic ability to breathe and complete everyday household chores. The Fen-Phen devastation was very far reaching and millions are still living with the effects of the drug today.

Fen-Phen class action suits as well as individual Fen-Phen lawsuits brought great media attention not only to the havoc reeked by Fen-Phen, but to the Fen-Phen lawyers as well. Some of the Fen-Phen lawyers were able to establish themselves as Fen-Phen sharks, able to shred the pharmaceutical company to shreds with their sharp teeth. Regardless of what an individual believes about the outright litigious nature of Americans, Fen-Phen lawsuits brought the public's attention to a potentially devastating side effect of what seemed like an innocent weight loss management aid.
