Eli Lilly Lawsuit for Tirzepatide in Mounjaro & Zepbound

Manufactured by Eli Lilly and Company, both Mounjaro and Zepbound contain the active ingredient tirzepatide. Tirzepatide is similar to semaglutide, which is used in medications like Ozempic, Rybelsus, and Wegovy to help with weight loss.

These medications can help patients feel fuller longer by slowing stomach emptying. However, some Mounjaro users have reported serious side effects like stomach paralysis (gastroparesis), which may occur when the medication activates GLP-1 receptors and disrupts the normal functioning of the digestive system.

In one study, up to 50% of patients experienced gastrointestinal issues and other adverse effects after taking a 15-mg dose of tirzepatide.

Many families have filed lawsuits against the makers of these GLP-1 weight loss drugs, claiming that pharmaceutical companies failed to adequately warn them about all of the potential risks.

Mounjaro Settlements & Verdicts

Mounjaro lawsuits could award compensation in one of two ways:

  • Mounjaro settlement: After your lawyers negotiate with the drug manufacturer, they may reach a Mounjaro lawsuit settlement. This agreed upon amount of compensation for your injuries is often awarded before your case goes to trial.
  • Mounjaro verdict: If a settlement isn’t reached, your case will proceed to a trial in court. After your lawyer presents your case, a judge or jury will decide on the amount of compensation you may be awarded, though there’s no guarantee of success in trials.
