Goldsboro Hydroxycut Information

Have You Taken Hydroxycut to Lose Weight?

The FDA has asked people to discontinue taking Hydroxycut as part of their efforts to lose weight. Hydroxycut has been linked to possible liver damage. If you have taken Hydroxycut and have suffered liver damage call a Goldsboro Hydroxycut attorney to see if you are entitled to compensation.

Hydroxycut Recall and Lawsuits

Hydroxycut, a dietary supplement marketed as helping to accelerate weight loss, was recalled, and its manufacturer was required to reformulate the product to eliminate ephedra and other ingredients that can cause harmful side effects, including: jaundice, liver damage, cardiovascular disorders, seizures, and muscle damage that can lead to kidney failure. In 2012 Iovate Health Sciences Group Inc., the manufacturer of Hydroxycut weight loss supplements, settled a class action lawsuit for $23.5 million. Lawyers continue to file lawsuits against Hydroxycut's maker as more users come forward with concerns about their health.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents. A lawyer can also help you get the compensation you deserve if you've suffered a serious injury. For issues where money or property is at stake, having a lawyer guide you through the complexities of the legal system can save you time, hassle, and possibly a lot of grief in the long run.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
