Massachusetts Ozempic Injury Lawsuit Attorneys
Ozempic (semaglutide) is a drug that has been prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes. Ozempic is manufactured by Novo Nordisk. It is a drug that is part of a group of drugs known as GLP-1 receptor agonists. Sadly, it has come to light that there is a large segment of the population who have taken Ozempic, and suffered serious health problems as a result. Many of these people have taken the drug bot for treatment for diabetes, but rather for weight loss. It has been shown that taking Ozempic reduces appetite, which leads to weight loss. However, taking this drug has been shown to cause health problems. That is what has lead to legal action filed in court on behalf of the victims for these injuries and harms they have suffered.Common Injuries From Ozempic
Some of the most common types of injuries suffered as a result of taking Ozempic are pancreatitis (when the pancreas becomes inflamed), thyroid cancer, kidney and liver injuries, gastrointestinal problems, and other types of serious medical harm. Other injuries that are less serious in nature include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.Ozempic Litigation
Lawsuits have been filed against Novo Nordisk claiming that company failed to warn users of the harmful side effects possible from taking the drug. The manufacturer is strongly defending these claims in order to limit and reduce as much as possible its legal exposure to pay claims that have been, and will be filed, against Novo Nordisk. This is a relatively new litigation that is developing. It will likely be many years before the litigation comes to an end.Compensation That May Be Available to You
