Women injured by those products may be able to file a SlimQuick liver injury lawsuit to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages from the marketers of this product.

SlimQuick weight loss products, like all dietary supplements, are not subject to FDA approval. It has recently come to our firm’s attention that SlimQuick weight loss supplements contain uva ursi (Arctostaphylos uva ursi, also known as Bearberry), an herbal ingredient that could pose a danger to the liver. Uva ursi contains a chemical called hydroquinone that is toxic to the liver and could damage the organ if taken in high doses. Taking a dose of hydroquinone that is greater than 5 grams has been linked to death from liver toxicity. Numerous websites that discuss uva ursi warn that people using this herbal supplement should be under the care of a doctor and carefully follow dosage instructions because of its association with liver toxicity. Most sites also warn that it should not be used for more than five days and for no more than five times in one year. Uva ursi also should not be taken by people with liver or kidney problems. (SlimQuick claims the weight loss supplement can be used for up to 16 weeks.)
