BELVIQ Lawsuit Lawyer

If you or a loved one used BELVIQ® and/or BELVIQ XR® and were subsequently diagnosed with colorectal, lung, or pancreatic cancer, a BELVIQ lawsuit lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins can determine if you are eligible to pursue compensation. Contact BELVIQ lawsuit lawyer at Loncar Lyon Jenkins immediately to schedule a free consultation to review your case.

Why is BELVIQ Dangerous?

During post-market studies to monitor cardiac events in users, data revealed an unacceptably high incidence of colorectal, lung, and pancreatic cancers in users of BELVIQ® and BELVIQ XR®. As a result, the medications were withdrawn from the market on February 13, 2020. The FDA approved BELVIQ® in 2012, and BELVIQ XR® in 2016. When combined with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, the medicines are intended to help with weight loss in adults.

The FDA advises that individuals using BELVIQ® and BELVIQ XR® discontinue use of the medication and contact their physicians about alternate weight-loss medication IMMEDIATELY. Find out if you are eligible to file or join a BELVIQ® lawsuit.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

How Much Time Do I Have to File or Join a BELVIQ® Lawsuit?

For any BELVIQ® and/or BELVIQ XR® patients already diagnosed with colorectal, lung, or pancreatic cancer, the recall likely creates a legal obligation to file any existing claims within a specified time. This time limit, referred to as the statute of limitations, can be as short as one year in some states. Failure to file suit within your state’s applicable statute of limitations usually prevents you from being compensated for your injuries.

These same deadlines apply when a loved one has passed away due to their cancer diagnosis. It is critical that these individuals seek representation immediately before their claims are time-barred. Your time to file suit is running out!

Individuals who have not been diagnosed with cancer should take steps right away to preserve their medical and pharmacy records. In the event you are diagnosed with cancer in the future, these records will be necessary to pursue a case.

What Damages Can I Recover If I File a BeLVIQ Lawsuit?

To date, no settlements or verdicts have been issued, and lawsuits are still ongoing. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of injured consumers are asking courts all over the country to hold the drug’s manufacturer accountable for the damage to their health.

Recoverable damages may include:

  • Medical care
  • Required medications
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Punitive damages may also be available. Our legal team will ensure you receive ongoing updates about your case, including all forms of available compensation.

Determine Your Eligibility to File a BELVIQ® Lawsuit

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics and data, in 2017-2018, more than 42% of the U.S. population struggled with being overweight or obese. When you decide to take back control of your weight, finding out weight loss medication you trusted may have damaged your health can be distressing.

You could be eligible for financial compensation if you were prescribed BELVIQ® to help control your weight and were later diagnosed with:

  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Lung cancer

To ensure eligibility, the cancer must have originated in these areas versus having spread there from other areas of the body. In addition, family members of patients who succumbed to BELVIQ®-related cancers may qualify for compensation.
