Caffeine powder is a popular, but potentially harmful product. Victims of this dangerous substance could consider pursuing a products liability claim if they have been injured, and the surviving family of a deceased victim generally has a similar right to seek a monetary award for any financial losses sustained. In fact, the growing popularity of caffeine powder and the frightening consequences of its use have led lawmakers to propose a ban. Reportedly, two young people have died as a result of ingesting this product.
After a 6-year-old girl lost her life, her family decided to take legal action. The family has filed a wrongful death suit against a Virginia utility company, claiming that the company's negligence led to the girl's death. The family seeks $200 million in damages for the loss of their loved one.
