Merck Loses Big In Latest Vioxx Trial

The jury in the current federal Vioxx trial has returned a verdict in favor of the plaintiff in the amount of $50,000,000. That is for actual damages. The jury will now deliberate on the punitive damages portion of the verdict.

The jury held that Merck was negligent in warning Jerry Barnett and his doctors about the risks of Vioxx.

This brings the Vioxx trial count to five wins for Merck and four losses.

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...)
