$820,000 Settlement – Stroke Resulting from Weight Loss Supplement starstarstarstarstar

John Elliott Leighton recovered $820,000 in a product liability case resulting from the use of an ephedra weight loss supplement.  Our client, a young woman, took the nutritional supplement for the first time one afternoon. The next day she took a second dose and shortly thereafter suffered a stroke.  After litigation began, the manufacturer filed for bankruptcy.  The case was resolved through bankruptcy and MDL litigation.
