San Diego Defect Pharmaceutical Drug Case: Metabolife 356

METABOLIFE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT (MULTI-DISTRICT LITIGATION)

$555,000.00 settlement for woman who took the diet drug Metabolife and suffered brain injuries…

Attorney Mark C. Blane was pivotal in his legal role in assisting a young lady who suffered brain trauma in the form of an ischemic stroke while taking Metabolife 356.  The makers of metabolife filed for U.S. bankruptcy protection, and after some time of court motions, and legal maneuvering, a settlement was achieved.  The lawsuit was filed in San Diego Superior Court, and it was transferred under the Multi-District Litigation panel as a Class Action lawsuit for consolidation purposes. Diagnostic testing of the brain confirmed that a "hole" was found in the head of the lady after tubing had to be placed there to relieve pressure.  The result of this caused cognitive, or behavioral changes to the young lady. More to the point, the brain axonal tissues had been damaged which caused a disturbance in how effective her neurons communicate.
