High rate of heart disease among Fen-Phen users.
Patients used a combination of pharmaceuticals (phentermine and fenfluramine) in an effort to reduce appetite and manage obesity. Among those people, there was an extraordinarily high rate of a particular kind of heart disease. Kolsby Gordon attorneys represented many Fen-Phen victims with successful results.
Kolsby Gordon helped several individuals after they experienced specific cardiac problems, including a patient who required valve surgery to address heart disease brought on by the diet drug. Another patient, a young woman, discovered her primary pulmonary hypertension was related to diet drugs and turned to Kolsby Gordon to mount a convincing case. Both cases resulted in settlements of six-figures and higher.
