  1. You should try and contact a product liability attorney to discuss your potential claim


  2. As indicated by Mr. Rubinov, you may have a potential products liability claim and should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. You should have your pre and post-accident medical records available for review as well as any proof that you actually consumed energy drinks in and about the time of your injury. Since you mention no time frame, the sooner you meet with qualified counsel, the better.

  3. See a lawyer immediately.


  4. Sorry to hear about your situation. I agree with my colleagues. Also you need medical support linking your problems to your current medical problems.

    Good luck.

  5. There are several class actions and other lawsuits which have been brought against the makers of Monster and other energy drinks suck as 5-hour Energy, and many of these lawsuits have arisen as a result of heart issues related to the drink. I suggest that you perform a search on Avvo for an attorney handling either a class action of this type or one who specializes in products liability so that you can further discuss this claim.

    Good luck!
