Monster Energy Makers Say Girl's Death Not From Their Drink

Monster Energy Drink Death Monster Beverage Corp. has billed Monster Energy Drink as a "killer energy brew." After reports that serious harm and deaths may be linked to the drink, some are asking whether the saying is more than just a slogan. Monster says there is no evidence.

Last year, the parents of one a teen sued the California based company after she died of cardiac arrest. Her parents blame caffeine toxicity from drinking two of the drinks on two consecutive days, and the parents' lawyer says there is evidence of toxicity. In response to the wrongful death and product liability suit, the company recently announced that doctors hired to examine the girl's medical records found no evidence that the drinks killed the girl, who was being treated for a heart condition.

The company said the team found no evidence to support the report of caffeine toxicity issued by the medical examiner in the girl's home state. The lawsuit isn't the only death that some believe is attributed to the drinks.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said last fall that it was investigating reports that five deaths could be associated with the drink. Additionally, energy drinks now being being eyed by regulators and lawmakers.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
