Do You Need a Lawyer?

Personal injury claims can legally be filed without the assistance of a lawyer. However, even though there is no requirement to speak with an attorney, it can be beneficial to have a legal advocate on your side who understands the ins and outs of personal injury law. This is especially true when you are going up against large pharmaceutical companies and insurers who do not have your best interests in mind.

As your attorneys, we will do the following for you in your lawsuit:

  • Investigate what caused your accident and help you determine fault
  • Help you organize your evidence, including medical records
  • Negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf
  • Go to trial if your claim requires it

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic, manufactured by Novo Nordisk, was originally prescribed as an injectable drug to treat those with type 2 diabetes and help them manage their blood sugar. Though it was not originally a rapid weight loss drug, it has been prescribed to many individuals as one over recent years. Ozempic, which also goes by several other names such as Wegovy and Saxenda, contains an ingredient known as semaglutide. This active ingredient typically regulates blood sugar levels and increases insulin production, leaving patients feeling full.

The downside of semaglutide drugs is that there could be potential dangers for those using them for weight loss. These include:

  • Stomach paralysis (gastroparesis)
  • Bowel obstruction/Ileus
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Malnutrition health disorders
  • Other related health issues

Gastroparesis, Ileus, and other mentioned health conditions caused by Ozempic can cause lasting effects in victims. Some of the symptoms that individuals could suffer for months or years include abdominal bloating, pain, constipation, dehydration, cramping, and more. These conditions can be ongoing and even permanent, affecting an individual long after the symptoms start.

Because of the number of individuals who suffered ill health effects or even lost their lives due to complications caused by the drug, lawsuits have risen to popularity to help plaintiffs receive damages for the harm they have suffered.

Am I Able to File an Ozempic Lawsuit in Oklahoma?

Yes, you and any other individuals harmed by Ozempic have the opportunity to join a class action lawsuit. In February 2024, a class action lawsuit was officially filed in court to help those move forward after they have suffered harm due to this drug. If you sustained illness or injury from Ozempic use on or before March 2022 that caused you to require hospitalization or surgery, our attorneys at Ylla Gosney can help you become part of a lawsuit that will help you achieve certain damages for your losses.

It is crucial that you follow the state’s statute of limitations if you hope to file a successful claim. In Oklahoma, you have two years to tile a personal injury claim before you are unable to do so. It is important that you start working with an attorney immediately to protect your rights if you have been harmed by Ozempic.

What Damages Are Available in an Oklahoma Ozempic Claim?

With the help of Ylla Gosney, you can file a claim against Novo Nordisk and possibly acquire damages for the losses you have suffered due to Ozempic. Several damages may be available for you, which include the following:

  • Payments to cover your medical expenses and those you expect in the future caused by hospitalizations, therapy, and surgeries
  • Loss of income due to missing time at work
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Punitive damages meant to punish pharmaceutical companies for their negligent acts

Depending on the severity or permanence of your illness or injuries, you may receive higher damages. The circumstances and stability of your claim will help you obtain the damages you need to get back on your feet during these challenging times.
