Personal Injury Cases: Taking A Look At Negative Side Effects Caused By Unlabeled Supplements

Recent statistics and data show that over 50% of Americans took some type of supplement from 2003 to 2006. Those numbers were steadily increasing and rising. Additional studies have shown that over 45% of those who took supplements wanted to improve their health and over 33% took supplements to maintain their health. Knowing what ingredients are contained within supplements is crucial, especially for those with food allergies. 

The Shocking Truth

A recent study showed that only 5 out of the 24 tested supplements contained the ingredients that it claimed to have. This means that over 80% of supplements in stores actually do not contain the ingredients that it claims to have. In short, don't believe the labels because you simply can't be sure of what you're taking.

Most of these supplements contain fillers and other plant products that are not listed. The presence of unlabeled ingredients or improperly labeled ingredients, like wheat and other contaminants, can have negative consequences and side effects that can create a domino effect one one's health.

Dealing with a Personal Injury Case

If you are a victim of unlabeled or improperly labeled supplements, you want to contact a personal injury lawyer immediately. It is important to take a sample of the supplement to the laboratory in order to determine the types of ingredients that it contains and the percentage. With this information, a medical professional can provide further insight regarding how the unlabeled supplements may have affected your health or spurred the medical conditions that you are dealing with.

By collecting all of this evidence and information, you may have a legal case on your hand, and you may be able to seek compensation from the supplement manufacturing companies. You can seek compensation for damages and losses like the full cost of the medications and medical treatments that are recommended by the physicians, wage loss from time that had to be taken off of work, caregiving expenses since you may not longer have the ability to provide and care for your children, and more. Your personal injury attorney, like those at Large & Associates Attorneys, will review your case and help you determine what is reasonable, and what can be expected.

Conclusion

Taking unlabeled or improperly labeled supplements can become a hazard, especially if you have any food allergies or if your body responds negatively to some of the ingredients. Speak with a medical professional before taking any supplements in order to get their professional opinion.
