Wrongful Death Lawyer, Product Liability Lawyer, drug recall attorney
After more than five years of hard-fought and difficult litigation, Merck agreed to pay $4.85 billion, the largest pharmaceutical settlement in history, to resolve certain Vioxx-related claims involving plaintiffs who suffered a heart attack (including sudden cardiac death) or a stroke. Beasley Allen’s Andy Birchfield and his Vioxx team of lawyers - Benjamin Locklar, P. Leigh O’Dell, and W. Roger Smith, III – played an integral role in the development of the Settlement Program and in Merck agreeing to settle these cases.
