Vioxx Settlement Announced
Date:11/9/2007

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- After several years of litigation, Merck has agreed to pay $4.85 billion in a settlement over Vioxx. The medication was pulled off the market in 2004 after a clinical trial proved it increased the risks of heart attacks and strokes. It is one of the largest pharmaceutical settlements in history.

James Hoyer Newcomer and Smiljanich is pleased this long process is coming to a resolution. The firm has more than a dozen clients who've suffered the ill-effects of taking Vioxx. "This settlement was a long time coming, but one that will finally give our clients some relief from the harm they suffered," said Attorney John Newcomer.

Nearly 30-thousand lawsuits have been filed nationwide against Merck because of Vioxx. Plaintiffs will receive different settlement payments depending on the severity of their injuries and the length of time they took Vioxx. Plaintiff Alvin Jupiter, of Tampa, suffered a heart attack in 2001 after taking Vioxx. He said, "I'm glad to see something coming to fruition on this. So many people were hurt."

James Hoyer Newcomer & Smiljanich will review details of the settlement over the coming weeks and work to ensure our clients are compensated fairly.
