Know Your Legal Rights

The big pharmaceutical companies that marketed Fen-Phen and Redux knew these drugs could cause primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). Documentation in their clinical trials and internal reporting documents proves it.

Drug manufacturers did not warn consumers that these diet drugs posed a risk of developing a fatal disease. They did not alert the Federal Drug Administration that some people who took the drugs in clinical trials developed PPH and died. Instead, Wyeth and others aggressively marketed Fen-Phen and Redux as "miracle" drugs for the treatment of obesity.

This makes the drug companies legally liable.

If you have been harmed by a product, you have a legal right to file a lawsuit in civil court and pursue financial compensation for the damages you have suffered, including pain and suffering, medical bills, lost income, and more.

The diet drugs Fen-Phen and Redux were defective products that were removed from the market by the FDA in 1997. Yet people continue to be diagnosed with PPH caused by Fen-Phen and Redux today.

If you developed PPH and once took Fen-Phen or Redux, please contact a defective drug litigation attorney at Hersh & Hersh to discuss your legal rights and options.

Our law firm filed and settled the first lawsuit linking Fen-Phen to PPH. We have litigated dozens of PPH claims and recovered more than $150 million in compensation for our injured clients.

Please don't delay. You have a limited time in which to file a PPH lawsuit. In most states, the statutes of limitations are only one to two years from the date of diagnosis. Don't give up your legal right to hold those that harmed you responsible for their actions. Contact Hersh & Hersh today. We also represent family members of those who died a wrongful death from PPH caused by Fen-Phen or Redux.
