How Safe are Your Dietary Supplements?
Dietary supplements do not require FDA approval and are allowed to make some rather significant claims without having to provide evidence for support. The results of this lack of oversight can be very dangerous for consumers.
According to a report published in the New England Journal of Medicine, 23,000 people are rushed to the emergency room every year following complications from dietary supplements. Nearly 50% of these visits are spurred by supplements used for weight loss and energy enhancement.
Previous studies have found that energy supplements are of particular danger to teens and children, and several diet pills are pulled from shelves every year following serious and even fatal events. If you or someone you love has been injured by one of these or any other type of supplement, you need an experienced product liability attorney on your side right away. The New Hampshire product liability lawyers at Van Dorn & Curtiss are here to meet with you free of charge, assess your damages, and help you determine if you have cause to file suit.
