Do I have individual legal options to pursue?
Yes. It is not too late to pursue an individual claim for damages. The Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen will help you determine whether you have a case.
If I took Fen-Phen and suffered heart valve damage what are my legal options?
As a Fen-Phen consumer, it is possible that you have a viable claim against American Home Products (Wyeth). Your voluntary consumption of the Fen-Phen medications does not relieve the manufacturer from its duty to make safe products or to warn of known dangers.
If you do have a case, you must act promptly in pursuing your claim. The reason for this is that a statute of limitations may be nearing. A statute of limitation is the time in which you must bring your claim or forever be barred from doing so. Each state has its own statutes. The time in which you can bring a case in California or New York may be different than the time in which you can bring a case in other States in the Nation.
I suspect I have Suffered Heart Valve Damage but have not taken steps to find out. Is it too late?
No. The Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen and affiliates will arrange for you to have a no up-front cost to you echocardiogram test to determine whether you you have suffered heart valve damage. (You must have had at least a 60 day Fen-Pen exposure to qualify.)*
*You still may have a viable claim if your exposure to the Fen-Phen diet medications was less than 60 days.
If I have not had an echocardiogram is it too late for me to get one and maximize my recovery?
No. If the Law Offices of Nadrich & Cohen and affiliates arrange for your echocardiogram and the results are FDA**positive, steps will be taken on your behalf to opt you out of the class action and pursue an individual claim for damages.
** FDA positive cases have been defined by the official Court Notice of Nationwide Diet Drug Class Action Settlement as:
A) Mild, moderate or severe aortic valve regurgitation
B) Moderate or greater Mitral valve regurgitation
Persons with diagnosed PPH cases (Primary Pulmonary Hypertension) may bring legal claims for PPH outside the settlement whether they participate in the settlement or choose to opt-out.
