How do You File an Ozempic Lawsuit?
In order to file an Ozempic lawsuit, you must first find out if you qualify for a claim against Novo Nordisk. Generally, establishing your eligibility requires you to show that you used Ozempic and experienced gallbladder disease, gallstones, or gastroparesis.
You can determine if you meet eligibility criteria by reaching out to an attorney. Your attorney can review your medical records and go over your usage of Ozempic to see if you qualify for a claim and can then file the necessary legal paperwork to begin your lawsuit.
Generally, you provide your attorney with information about your health and documentation to support your claims and allow the law firm to file the claim on your behalf.

What Happens If You File an Ozempic Lawsuit?
Filing an Ozempic lawsuit may allow you to seek compensation to cover your healthcare expenses and other losses caused by the side effects of using this medication. However, you should expect a complicated legal process before receiving damages.
Once you file your claim, your attorney will collect evidence detailing information like:
- How often you took Ozempic
- The size of your Ozempic dosage
- The health effects you experienced after using Ozempic
For example, hundreds of patients nationwide have reported issues with gastroparesis after using Ozempic. Some individuals have to go to the emergency room due to the severity of this condition, which can cause nausea and vomiting.
One patient threw up so violently that she lost teeth in the process.
After collecting evidence, your attorney may move forward with a product liability claim against the manufacturer of Ozempic, Novo Nordisk. You can expect the manufacturer to push back against these claims in an attempt to avoid paying out compensation.
Why Are There Lawsuits Against Ozempic?
Individuals around the country are considering lawsuits against Novo Nordisk after using Ozempic and experiencing severe adverse side effects. Other drugs that work in similar ways, including Wegovy and Rybelsus, may also lead to lawsuits.
Any drug can lead to serious side effects. However, Novo Nordisk failed to adequately warn medical professionals and patients about the potential risks of using Ozempic. This failure to warn put individuals at a higher level of risk of experiencing dangerous side effects.
These side effects left individuals with high medical expenses and other losses. Lawsuits allow eligible parties to seek fair compensation for these costs.
