The drug Vioxx is a COX-2 inhibitor designed by the
company Merck Inc. It was ordered to be pulled from
American and European markets on April 7th 2005 after it
was discovered that there were potentially deadly side
effects from its use.
Doctors and researchers both believed that the drug Vioxx
could cause cardiovascular problems and recently a Texas
jury awarded a $253.4 million wrongful death settlemtn to
the widow of a man who allegedly died from Vioxx-related
Experts will now agree that Merck knew of the danger the
Vioxx presented, but instead chose to market the drug as
a safe way to reduce pain and inflammation. This terrible
misjudgment has lead to a variety of dangerous and deadly
complications including deep vein thrombosis, stroke,
pulmonary embolism, blood clots and other serious heart
Currently there are 4200 pending lawsuits filed against
Merck. Friends and families of Vioxx victims must attempt
to pick up their shattered lives and face the reality
that negligence, deception and greed have robbed them of
their loved ones. Merck gambled with the pharmaceutical
industry and lost.
If you believe that you may be affected with Vioxx
complications please take a stand. Drug makers are hoping
that victims of Vioxx will remain silent due to fear and
intimidation. A Vioxx lawsuit might be the most effective
way to show Merck and other drug makers that they must be
accountable for their actions.
