Energy drinks are beverages that contain large doses of caffeine and are marketed towards individuals between 18 and 25. They are advertised as drinks that provide mental stimulation while boosting your energy. However, since energy drinks are rather new to the market, the effects of their long-term use are unclear. Evidence suggests that they may be dangerous to young consumers.
Energy drinks have been linked to deaths and illnesses. In February 2013, the Pediatrics in Review journal, published a study that linked energy drinks to dangerous side effects in children and teenagers. The increased number of emergency hospital visits by those consuming energy drinks validated these studies. Lawsuits are alleging children have suffered severe side effects including fatal cardiac arrest after consuming energy drinks.
If you or a loved has suffered an injury after consuming an energy drink, you may be entitled to compensation through a products liability lawsuit. Manufacturers of consumer products can be held liable for injuries caused by products that are defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed, and there is mounting evidence that these beverages can pose serious health risks to consumers. In order to determine whether you may have a claim, you should contact an experienced energy drink lawyer to schedule a free consultation. An attorney familiar with the dangers associated with the consumption of energy drinks will be able to advise you on how best to proceed, and also will be able to answer any questions you may have about the legal process of filing a claim.
