Vioxx Recall leads to Vioxx Lawsuits

Written by Margaret Wommack

Vioxx is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammagory drug (NSAID) that reduces inflammation, pain, fever, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis stiffness, and menstrual pain. However, Vioxx has been shown to cause blood clots, heart attacks, stroke, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, kidney damage and other dangerous and potentially deadly side effects.

Lawsuits are being filed against Merck,repparttar manufacturer of Vioxx, for product liability. The claim is that Merck knewrepparttar 148812 dangers of Vioxx and marketed it anyway. In drug product liability lawsuits,repparttar 148813 prosecution must prove that Merck didnít provide forrepparttar 148814 safety ofrepparttar 148815 patient and that they were harmed as a direct result from taking Vioxx and from Merckís negligence. Sometimes drug companies that wish to avoid public scrutiny will settle outside of court, but they will sometimes lengthenrepparttar 148816 trial to forcerepparttar 148817 plaintiff into agreeing to their settlement.
