Due to the recent recall of 14 Hydroxycut products, consumers who have suffered injuries from using Hydroxycut are encouraged to seek the legal counsel of an experienced products liability attorney to determine if he/she is eligible for compensation. Lawinfo provides access to pre-screened and pre-qualified Hydroxycut trial attorneys nationwide.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 26, 2009 -- For over 15 years, LawInfo has been the premier legal information website. LawInfo's primary goal is to provide consumers with access to qualified legal professionals, while creating attorney business solutions for clients nationwide.
On May 1, 2009, the FDA announced a recall of 14 different Hydroxycut weight-loss products by the drug's manufacturer, Iovate Health Sciences, following at least 23 reports of associated liver damage. Although dietary supplements such as Hydroxycut do not require FDA approval before they are marketed, and are not closely monitored like prescription medications, all drug manufacturers have a legal responsibility to inform physicians and consumers regarding any possible risks associated with their drug(s). If they fail to do so, they can be held liable to injured consumers under a legal theory known as "products liability." Such liability can include providing financial compensation for medical treatment, loss of work, loss of income, etc.
In addition to hosting thousands of free pages of legal information covering every aspect of the law, and online videos providing answers to commonly asked legal questions, LawInfo also provides an attorney directory of experienced trial lawyers (i.e. Hydroxycut litigation lawyers) across the nation. LawInfo's attorney clients are pre-screened to be in excellent standing with the bar, have tried and won significant cases, and are currently available to meet with clients to discuss the specifics of their claim.
LawInfo also offers interactive user-options for consumers. Among these options include a legal blog and chat forum with over 1200 message boards, volumes of quick and easily accessible free legal forms, and Premium legal documents.
