The Ozempic lawsuit is in its earliest stages. In other words, a newly filed lawsuit has cleared a path for plaintiffs’ attorneys to begin collecting evidence to determine what manufacturers of Ozempic and other pharmaceutical companies knew when they put the drug on the market and what they failed to warn patients about. As more patients discover the lawsuit, many are concerned about the Ozempic lawsuit criteria.
If you meet the above criteria, please contact our Ozempic lawsuit lawyers as soon as possible at 800-359-5690.
According to drugwatch.com, lawyers began accepting clients for Ozempic-related health issues in August 2022. Legal action started when JAMA Internal Medicine published a research letter linking Ozempic to a higher risk of gallbladder disease and gallstones.

Stomach paralysis is likely caused by a disruption of nerve signals to the stomach. Research indicates that stomach paralysis afflicts approximately 4% of the American population. Of those cases, over 80% are women. In addition, 50% of those diagnosed with stomach paralysis had diabetes before the onset of their gastroparesis. Other risk factors include the following:
