Energy Drink Lawsuits

Energy drinks are marketed and sold as products that can boost energy, concentration, and alertness. Although consumers perceive energy drinks as safe, there are significant risks associated with energy drinks due to the addition of potentially hazardous ingredients in excessive quantities. Many energy drinks do not contain warning labels that list ingredients or advise consumers about limitations for safe consumption.

What are Energy Drinks?

Energy drinks, such as Red Bull, Monster Energy, and Rockstar, have become increasingly popular among teens and young adults over the past two decades. These drinks are advertised as providing increased energy from high doses of caffeine, supplements such as Ginseng and Gingko Biloba, stimulants such as Guarna and Taurine, and large amounts of Vitamin B. Some energy drinks contain as much as 400 mg of caffeine per can. As a comparison, the average caffeine content of an 8-ounce cup of coffee is 95 mg and the caffeine content in a 12-ounce can of Coke is 34 mg. Energy drinks are typically sold alongside other products and marketed as alternatives to popular soft drinks. In addition, young adults and teens often consume several energy drinks at one time or in a short period of time.

What is Happening with Energy Drinks?

Several reports have linked energy drinks to serious health problems, including heart attacks, kidney failure, and strokes in a number of otherwise healthy adults. Energy drinks are particularly dangerous in certain subgroups, including minors, people with heart problems, seizure conditions and diabetes, and those taking certain medications (including ADHD medications). Between 2007 and 2011, the number of emergency room visits linked to energy drink consumption doubled. In 2011, one in ten of those cases resulted in hospitalization. The Journal of Pediatrics released a study in 2011 warning that energy drink consumption in kids can result in heart palpitations, seizures, strokes, and sudden death.

Wrongful death lawsuits against energy drink manufacturers allege that manufacturers market their products to children and adolescents and do not adequately warn consumers about the side effects of energy drinks. In particular, energy drink manufacturers fail to caution consumers about using their products in excessive amounts or in conjunction with alcohol or exercise. In 2012, the Food and Drug Administration launched an investigation into deaths associated with Monster Energy drinks that date back to 2004. In 2014, the Center for Science in the Public Interest reported 34 deaths linked to energy drink consumption as of the date of the report.
