Fen-Phen Diet Drug: Collective Settlements totaling $15 Million
We filed the first Minnesota lawsuit against American Home Products for injuries resulting from the use of their combo diet drug Fen- Phen. Some of the injuries associated with Fen-Phen were heart valve disorders, mitral valve regurgitation and primary pulmonary hypertension. Some users had to undergo valve replacement surgeries. After filing the lawsuit just under fifty clients were able to recover approximately $14 million. An additional 100 + Fen Phen claims were submitted to the AHP Settlement and the 7th Amendment receiving approximately $15 million in recoveries.
