Burg Simpson Investigating Claims by Cancer Patients Who Took Belviq
Burg Simpson is currently investigating claims by patients diagnosed with cancer after the patients ingested the appetite-reducing drug Belviq (lorcaserin) prescribed by their physicians. Last year, the FDA recalled Belviq after a multi-year analysis determined that patients who took the drug had an elevated risk of cancer. Following the research, the FDA stated that “the risks of lorcaserin outweigh its benefits.” If you, or someone you know, were diagnosed with cancer after taking the prescription drug Belviq, you may be entitled to substantial money damages.
Burg Simpson’s Mass Tort department is skillfully led by shareholder Seth Katz. His practice involves primarily complex and class action litigation on behalf of aggrieved consumers, corporate shareholders, and property owners, and pharmaceutical mass tort litigation on behalf of those injured as a result of their ingestion of prescription medications and the implantation of medical devices.
