Lawsuits Have Merck in Their Sights

It has been estimated that Vioxx could have caused 27,785 heart attacks or deaths since it was approved for use in 1999.

More than 3,800 lawsuits have been filed so far against the pharmaceutical manufacturer Merck in the U.S.A. alone on the Vioxx issue.

After the awarding of $US253,000,000 to a victim of Viocc in the US, lawyers in Australia, England and Scotland are now gearing up claims on behalf of the hundreds of victims there.
