A woman is holding her stomach due to abdominal pain.

Attorney Jim Glaser and his network of trusted legal professionals have decades of experience bringing justice to drug injury claims, and we are here to help with your Boston weight loss drug lawsuit. Ozempic and Mounjaro, although not approved specifically for weight loss but rather for the treatment of diabetes, have been widely prescribed off-label due to their weight loss side effects. However, higher doses of these drugs, similar to those found in weight loss-approved versions like Wegovy and Zepbound, have been associated with severe gastrointestinal issues. These adverse conditions include gastroparesis (a condition that affects the normal movement of the stomach muscles), ileus (a painful obstruction of part of the intestine), gallbladder disease, and pancreatitis.

If you have experienced any of these severe side effects after taking a weight loss injection, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit in Boston for Ozempic or Mounjaro with the assistance of a skilled drug injury lawyer from Jim Glaser Law.

Why File an Ozempic or Mounjaro Lawsuit in Boston?

You might be contemplating the value of filing a lawsuit for the complications you’ve encountered due to these diabetes drugs prescribed for weight loss. There are several significant reasons to consider taking legal action:

  • Compensation for Damages: The financial burden of medical treatments, lost income, and the emotional distress from adverse drug reactions can be overwhelming. You deserve compensation for these hardships, and the law allows for your right to seek these damages.
  • Holding Manufacturers Accountable: Though it comes second to bringing you justice for your injury, we strongly believe in holding drug manufacturers accountable for the safety of their products and the transparency of information provided to consumers. By filing a lawsuit, you contribute to this accountability.
  • Promoting Drug Safety: Legal action can highlight the need for safer drug options and better regulatory oversight, potentially leading to improvements in drug safety and prescribing practices.
  • Informed Consent: Many individuals affected by these drugs were not adequately informed about the potential risks. Filing a lawsuit can emphasize the importance of informed consent in health care.

Trying to handle the entire process of a lawsuit on your own can be incredibly difficult. It requires gathering evidence, understanding complex legal principles, adhering to tight deadlines, and accurately calculating all related expenses. Partnering with an experienced weight loss injury attorney from Jim Glaser Law can significantly ease this process, ensuring your case is compelling and comprehensive.
