Lawsuit Claims Drug Maker Was Aware of Risks

The widow’s lawsuit alleges that her husband took Viagra for several years. About 11 years after he began taking the drug, he was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. Within four years of his diagnosis he had died, and the official cause of death was deemed metastatic melanoma.

The complaint alleges that Pfizer was aware of the drug’s link to melanoma and that the company failed to exercise due care in developing and marketing Viagra to potential consumers. Studies are cited that show that those who took Viagra were twice as likely to develop melanoma as those who never took the drug.

The plaintiff’s complaint alleges that because of existing evidence linking Viagra to cancer, the drug maker should have adequately warned patients of the potential risk. It was the negligence of Pfizer, according to the complaint, that ultimately caused the decedent’s melanoma diagnosis and subsequent death.

Affected Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation

Drug makers should provide drugs that are safe. Warnings should be provided regarding any potentially severe or life-threatening side effects. If a drug maker fails to provide these warnings, it could be held liable for any injuries that may result.

Patients who took Viagra and subsequently developed melanoma may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, scarring and disfigurement from melanoma or its treatment, pain, suffering, and mental anguish, and lost wages or ability to work. If a patient dies of melanoma after taking Viagra, his family members may be able to pursue compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including conscious pain and suffering of a loved one before death, loss of financial support, or the grief associated with losing a loved one.
