Another Vioxx Victory For Merck

This summary is based on a report issued moments ago by Harris Martin Publishing:

An Illinois state court jury has found Merck & Co. Inc. to be free of negligence in the Midwest’s first Vioxx trial, rejecting a widower’s claims that the company failed to adequately warn his wife’s physician about the alleged dangers of Vioxx and that Vioxx caused her fatal 2003 heart attack.

Frank Schwaller claimed that his wife, Patricia Schwaller, suffered a fatal heart attack on August. 8, 2003, at age 52 as a result of using Vioxx for approximately 20 months. Merck maintained that it acted swiftly to try to warn doctors that Vioxx carried possibly dangerous side effects and that Schwaller’s other health problems might better explain her death.

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...)
