Manassas Park Woman Sues Drug Company Over Breast Cancer
The story reports on a complaint brought by Hausfeld LLP on behalf of Tina Griffin, "one of about 10,000 women nationwide who have filed lawsuits against Wyeth, the division of Pfizer that produces Prempro and Premarin, claiming that the [hormone therapy] drugs caused them to get breast cancer[.]" In similar lawsuits in 2009, Philadelphia juries awarded plaintiffs over $100 million in compensatory and punitive damages. "The dollar amount is important, but what's more important is that juries are reacting to this evidence and in a pretty consistent manner," Lewis said. "Juries are recognizing that the conduct of the defendants justifies an award."
