Fen-Phen and Diet Drugs
Lawyers for Those Injured by the Diet Drug Fen-Phen
The diet drug Fen-Phen was marketed as a safe and effective treatment for obesity. It actually caused severe heart and lung diseases that can be deadly.
The manufacturer was aware of the problems with the drug, but did nothing to protect the public until the attorneys of Hersh & Hersh took action.
Before the drug was removed from the market in 1997, our law firm filed and settled the first lawsuit establishing the connection between Fen-Phen diet pills and primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH), a chronic, progressive lung disease that is fatal without a lung transplant.
