Widow Testifies in Texas Vioxx Trial

As reported on Houston’s Channel 2 Website, the widow testified today in the Angleton, Texas trial. Excerpt:

ANGLETON, Texas — The widow of a Texas man whose death is at the center of the country’s first Vioxx-related civil trial haltingly told jurors Thursday that she struggles with guilt because she suggested her husband ask his doctor about the painkiller when they saw ads for it on television.

“I feel very guilty at times,” a soft-spoken Carol Ernst testified about her husband, Robert Ernst, who took Vioxx for eight months to relieve pain in his hands before he died in his sleep next to her.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
