Los Angeles Attorneys Handling Dangerous Dietary Supplement Injuries

Most dietary supplements that are available to the public are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  This means that although they may seem safe, no agency has certified them as such.  As a result, thousands of individuals become injured and die every year due to dangerous dietary supplements and the side effects they cause.

Supplements Causing Liver Damage

The physical impact of unregulated dietary supplements is starting to come to light. Many ingredients in these supplements have been discovered to the liver.   Body-building dietary supplements have been shown to be the #1 cause of acute liver failure in the United States. There have been cases, such as one we handled, where a specific ingredient destroyed our client’s liver. After taking a fat-burning/muscle-building dietary supplement for about 30 days. Our client became comatose, and her doctors told the family to expect death within 48 hours if a liver donor could not be found.  Luckily, a donor was found and an emergency transplant was performed which saved her life.  She has been left with serious residuals and has been forced to make many lifestyles changes.

Unfortunately, our client’s situation is not a unique.  Thousands of individuals have experienced liver damage as a result of these dietary supplements.  It is important that the companies that develop, produce and distribute these types of supplements be held accountable for the injuries and death that they cause.

In addition to becoming damaged by unregulated and dangerous dietary supplements, the liver can be affected by a number of other drugs, including Tylenol (aka acetaminophen) when taken with alcoholic drinks or when the recommended dose is exceeded.
