With today's hustle and bustle, many are looking for a little pick-me-up during the day in order to get all of their chores and errands done - a way to stay awake for many hours.
In case you have not heard, the Federal government is investigating claims that the 5-Hour Energy drink has caused deathshospitalization over the last several years. Reports indicate that the popular two-ounce package that gives the individual a powerful caffeine punch, is being linked to serious side effects and death - about 13 deaths and more than 30 people have been hospitalized over the last several years. Each can is said to have the caffeine content of two cups of coffee.
In addition, the Food and Drug Administration has been investigating energy drinks for the same reasons. Although company officials maintain that their products are harmless, they are still under investigation. Manufacturers have a responsibility to warn consumers about any potential dangers and risks associated with using their products.
If you or a loved one has gotten sick from drinking an energy drink, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has experience in product liability cases and will make sure your interests and legal rights are protected. If it is determined that the product, did indeed, cause illness or death, the injured victim or the family of the deceased can file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer.
