Every Ozempic lawsuit to date has been filed by users who developed gastrointestinal problems. Ozempic eligibility may include those who:

  • Have been prescribed Ozempic. Patients who were legally prescribed Ozempic by a healthcare provider for the treatment of type 2 diabetes or for weight loss and have documentation.
  • Suffered adverse health effects. Individuals who experienced serious side effects or medical conditions after taking Ozempic, especially the conditions cited in the lawsuits, such as severe gastroparesis, ileus, intestinal blockage, or other significant gastrointestinal issues.
  • Can establish a connection between Ozempic and their condition. Plaintiffs must be able to show that their health issues are directly linked to their use of Ozempic. This typically requires medical evidence to support such a claim.
  • Incurred damages as a result of their condition. Ozempic eligibility will likely hinge on the fact that you suffered physical, emotional, and/or financial harm. This can include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related damages.
  • Filed within the statute of limitations. You must file your lawsuit within a specific time frame set by the statute of limitations in your state. This time frame varies by jurisdiction and is calculated from the date you discovered or should have discovered the harm.
  • Did not receive adequate warning. If you were not sufficiently warned about the potential risks and side effects associated with Ozempic, and that led to unforeseen health complications, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.

Speak with an experienced lawyer if you have suffered severe gastrointestinal side effects from Ozempic. An attorney can evaluate the specifics of your case, inform you of your legal rights and options, and guide you through the process of potentially filing a lawsuit. A lawyer can also help gather the necessary medical documentation and evidence to build a strong case.
