Energy drinks like Monster, Rockstar, 5-Hour Energy, Red Bull, and others have been linked to serious side effects. When consumed excessively, caffeine and vitamins like niacin (Vitamin B3) can cause toxic liver damage, heart problems, or death.

What is the problem?
There is no excuse for companies that sell dangerously-caffeinated energy drinks. These beverages pose serious risks to consumers for several reasons. Energy drinks are often marketed as “dietary supplements” rather than food to avoid regulation by the FDA. This is why only a few energy drinks list the amount of caffeine and other ingredients on the label.
FDA Reports Serious Injuries & Deaths
In recent years, the FDA has investigated claims of serious injury and death linked to energy drinks. In 2012, the FDA confirmed that 5-Hour Energy was linked to 13 reports of death and Monster was linked to five deaths. One of the victims was a 14 year-old girl with a pre-existing heart problem who died of cardiac arrest after drinking two cans of Monster Energy in one day.
Energy Drink Lawsuits
In February 2016, a law firm in Florida filed a group of five lawsuits against Monster Energy. One of the lawsuits involved a 14 year-old boy who died of a stroke. Other lawsuits involve kidney problems, heart attacks, and liver inflammation. Our law firm is investigating cases involving the following energy drinks:
Energy Drink Class Action Lawsuits
Class action lawsuits have already been filed against several energy drink manufacturers. However, these class actions are not seeking compensation for people who were injured — they are seeking refunds for everyone who bought energy drinks without knowing the risks.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm in Texas. However, our lawyers are not filing a class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who had serious injuries after consuming energy drinks, such as:
About Class Actions
Class actions are useful when a lot of people buy defective or dangerous products. Lawyers choose one person who bought the product and use that case to argue for compensation on behalf of everyone who bought the product in a certain state. Any payout is divided equally among everyone in the class action.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Class actions are not designed to maximize compensation for people with the most serious injuries. Furthermore, they can have serious disadvantages. In some class actions, lawyers take a massive cut of the settlement and leave very little remaining for plaintiffs.
Instead of a class action, our lawyers file individual lawsuits. We specialize in helping victims seek compensation for their pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, permanent injuries, lost income or earning capacity, and wrongful death of family members.
