Here at Advocate Capital, Inc. we make it a priority to stay abreast of developing cases and strive to be a resource for our law firm clients pursuing new areas of litigation. When we learn of a client or colleague taking on a new cause for justice, it is our privilege to share this information with as many people in the legal community as possible to ensure that injured citizens and attorneys protecting their rights have the best possible access to resources.
Long-time friend and colleague Kevin Goldberg and his team at Goldberg, Finnegan & Mester, LLC, headquartered in Maryland, are representing clients across the U.S. who have suffered heart attacks, serious injuries and deaths resulting from consumption of energy drinks such as Monster Energy, Red Bull, Rockstar, AMP and 5 Hour Energy. These drinks are not appropriately regulated by the FDA because the companies that manufacture the drinks can choose whether their product is classified as a “dietary supplement” or as a “beverage.”
Mr. Goldberg was one of the first attorneys to take on the energy drink industry and is a published author on this rapidly developing topic receiving national media attention. His article “Dangerous Drinks” was featured in the American Association for Justice March, 2013 edition of Trial magazine.
Most recently, Kevin was interviewed by CNBC regarding a new lawsuit filed in California due to yet another death related to the Monster Energy Drinks. Click on the video below as Kevin explains how Monster Energy targets their drink products to children, teenagers and young adults:
If you have a client or know of someone who has suffered serious injury or perhaps even death as a result of energy drink consumption, Mr. Goldberg and his team have the expertise and experience to handle the case.
