Ozempic Lawsuit - Semaglutide Drug Claim

woman loses weight from ozempic and semaglutide weight loss drug

In 2017, Nova Nordisk launched Ozempic, a medication designed to treat type 2 diabetes. However, healthcare practitioners soon noticed that some individuals using Ozempic experienced side effects such as reduced appetite and subsequent weight loss. The growing popularity of Ozempic for weight loss led to the development of Wegovy, a higher-dose variant of Ozempic.

Nova Nordisk is the producer of Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus, all of which include the active component semaglutide.

What is semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication that assists in lowering blood sugar levels by mimicking the hormone GLP-1, naturally produced by the body to aid in digestion after meals. Additionally, GLP-1 plays a role in decreasing hunger and promoting a sense of fullness.

What is tirzepatide?

Alongside Ozempic and Wegovy, Mounjaro has gained recognition for its weight loss effects. Tirzepatide, the active ingredient in Mounjaro, is akin to semaglutide.

Tirzepatide serves as both a dual GLP-1 agonist and GIP agonist, offering similar advantages to GLP-1 medications like semaglutide. Presently used as a second-line diabetes treatment, similar to GLP-1 medications, tirzepatide is administered through a once-weekly subcutaneous injection.

Eli Lilly is the manufacturer of two medications containing tirzepatide:

Personalized Legal Support During Your Ozempic Case:

If you’re considering legal action due to injuries caused by a semaglutide drug, common claims encompass negligence, product liability, and false advertising.

Class Actions and Beyond For Semaglutide or Ozempic Litigation:

While most semaglutide lawsuits are filed as personal injury claims rather than proposed class actions, many have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation. This framework, akin to class actions but treating claims individually, streamlines the process. Some proposed class actions have also emerged, alleging manufacturers’ failure to warn consumers. At Herrman & Herrman P.L.L.C., we navigate the nuances of these legal strategies to ensure the most effective approach for your unique case.

Ozempic Wrongful Death Claims:

In instances where Ozempic or a semaglutide drug is believed to have led to a person’s death, our experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorneys stand ready to guide the decedent’s family or the person representing the estate. Discussing the law and exploring available options is essential to pursuing justice.

Potential Health Problems with Semaglutide:

In 2023, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) disclosed receiving complaints that raised safety concerns associated with these medications, including the potential for severe and life-threatening blockages in the intestines. Current investigations are underway to determine if additional cautionary measures should be implemented in response to reports of intestinal obstruction.

Recent research indicates that medications such as Wegovy, Ozempic, and Mounjaro might elevate the risk of life-threatening intestinal blockages or obstructions, often necessitating extensive surgical intervention. Indicators of intestinal blockage may encompass:

  1. Abdominal cramps
  2. Swelling
  3. Difficulty passing gas
  4. Vomiting
  5. Constipation

In addition to the risk of intestinal blockage, the FDA has received notifications of stomach paralysis. Stomach paralysis, also recognized as gastroparesis, hinders the proper functioning of the stomach’s nerves and muscles, resulting in delayed digestion. Manifestations of gastroparesis may manifest as:

  1. Indigestion
  2. Nausea
  3. Vomiting
  4. Malnutrition
  5. Upper abdominal pain
  6. Bloating
  7. Rapid satiety
  8. Loss of appetite

Do You Have An Ozempic or Semaglutide Case?

Could your situation warrant legal consideration?

You might have a potential case if:

Commenced the medication at age 75 or below.
Used one of the branded medications: Ozempic, Wegovy, or Mounjaro.
Experienced an emergency room visit or hospital admission due to vomiting.
Received a diagnosis of gastroparesis, gastric stasis, stomach paralysis, or gastric obstruction while actively taking the medication or within 30 days of discontinuation.

Navigating the Legal Landscape Of Your Weight Loss Drug Lawsuit

If you suspect that your health has been compromised due to the use of a semaglutide drug, there are critical steps you can take to prepare for potential legal action. In this pivotal moment, securing the guidance of an experienced attorney is paramount. Look for legal expertise not only in civil law but specifically in product liability and personal injury, particularly within the realm of mass torts.

Thorough Ozempic Case Evaluation:

Selecting the right attorney is just the beginning. Your chosen legal representative will skillfully investigate your circumstances, identifying the nuances of your claims. While standard negligence claims may be part of your case, your attorney will delve into potential product liability issues unique to your situation. With a team comprising young lawyers, paralegals, and experts, your attorney will meticulously examine the specifics of your claims and potential liability issues.


Settlement or Verdict Considerations:

The journey toward resolution can take different paths. A settlement, confidential or not, marks the end of legal actions and requires careful consideration. On the other hand, a trial verdict, while less secure, can be disputed and overturned on appeal. Consulting with your attorney about the implications of each option is crucial before making a decision.

Types of Damages and Potential Awards:

Drug lawsuits typically involve personal injury claims that may result in both economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages cover tangible costs such as medical bills, while noneconomic damages compensate for intangible elements like pain and suffering. Attorneys anticipate multi-million-dollar damage awards, taking into account factors like the specific injury, its severity, impact on careers, medical treatment, pain and suffering.
