Confidential v. Bayer Pharmaceutical, Inc. – $4,600,000.00 Settlement
Defective Drugs – $4,600,000.00 Settlement, October 2004
Plaintiff had taken Bayer’s drug Baycol and shortly thereafter was diagnosed with Rhabdomyolysis, a condition that results in muscle cell breakdown and release of the contents of muscle cells into the bloodstream. After withdrawal of Baycol by Bayer, plaintiff sought representation from Zimmerman & Frachtman. Zimmerman & Frachtman’s experts were able to prove that plaintiff’s Rhabdomyolysis was caused by Baycol. Bayer settled this claim for $4,600,000.00.
