Mounjaro Lawsuits for Severe Side Effects

What is Wrong with Mounjaro?

Mounjaro is a commonly prescribed medication for managing type 2 diabetes and weight loss. The drug has recently come under scrutiny with a surge in lawsuits. Patients are reporting severe side effects, including gastroparesis, intestinal blockages, gallbladder issues, and deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

What are Mounjaro Lawsuits About?

The lawsuits against Mounjaro and its manufacturer, Eli Lilly and Company, have surged because of the large number of people using and experiencing severe and debilitating side effects. 

These lawsuits allege that Eli Lilly failed to adequately warn patients and healthcare providers about the potential risks associated with Mounjaro. Because of this, people across the country are filing lawsuits seeking compensation for their medical bills, pain and other damages to their lives.

Mounjaro Class Action Lawsuits or MDL

In February 2024 all Mounjaro lawsuits were grouped together into one federal court for what is called a Multidistrict Litigation, or MDL. This grouping of cases is similar to a class action lawsuit, but follows a different legal process: every single person with a filed case will have a right to their own individual trial..

Severe Side Effects of Mounjaro

Gastroparesis

Gastroparesis can happen if Mounjaro causes nerve and muscle damage to the stomach muscles, causing them to stop moving food through the gastrointestinal system. It’s also called stomach paralysis. This condition can lead to:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Bloating and abdominal pain
  • Malnutrition
  • Dehydration
  • Organ failure
  • Serious hospitalization
  • Severe fluctuations in blood sugar levels

Patients taking Mounjaro have reported gastroparesis significantly impacting their quality of life. The delayed gastric emptying can make it challenging to manage diabetes effectively, complicating the treatment process.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) or Blood Clots

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition where blood clots form in deep veins, usually in the legs. Research shows that semaglutide medications can increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis by 266%.
This condition can lead to:

  • Swelling and pain in the affected leg
  • Red or discolored skin on the leg
  • A feeling of heat in the affected leg
  • Potential for life-threatening complications if clots travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism)

Mounjaro users have reported experiencing blood clots, which can severely impact mobility and overall health. Immediate medical attention is required to manage this condition and prevent serious and even deadly complications.

As an experienced leader in these types of lawsuits, we were confident the firm would have the expertise. However, what surprised us most was the high level of excellent customer service from the firm’s staff!

I can’t recommend this firm enough. They have an outstanding team that truly care for their clients…I have been awarded a fair six figure settlement.

Nate M.

When I say “they went to bat” for me…this Law Firm literally did just that. They persevered to bring the hard-nosed Manufacturer to settle and provide me some recompense for everything I had to endure which led to this suit.
