Family Suing Red Bull for Allegedly Causing Man’s Death

The New York Daily News reports that after Cory Terry of Brooklyn died after drinking the beverage and then playing basketball in Nov. 2011, his family is suing Red Bull for $85 million. The article notes that the lawsuit was expected to be filed Monday and would represent what “is believed to be the first wrongful death suit against Red Bull.” The lawsuit also notes nine deaths that have been linked to Red Bull consumption around the world and cites studies showing the dangers of energy drink consumption.

The Science World Report focuses its coverage on the more negative side of energy drinks. The article includes a picture of several cans of energy drinks, with a caption reading, “PepsiCo, unfortunately, does not consider Kickstart to be an energy drink because it has much less caffeine than drinks such as Monster and Red Bull, and none of the mysterious ingredients that have raised concerns among lawmakers and consumer advocates.” TimeBusiness Insider, the Sydney (AUS) Daily Telegraph and Medical Daily also cover this story.

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...)
