Proposed VIOXX Settlement

Posted in: News

A settlement has been reached in the action against VIOXX.

The settlement is for up to $36,881,250.00 depending on the number of approved claims and includes payments to provincial health insurers, payments towards legal costs, and payments for notice and claims administration.  If the settlement is approved by the courts, individuals (or their estates) may be eligible to receive payment if they took Vioxx and then experienced a heart attack (myocardial infarction), sudden cardiac death or ischemic stroke.  Spouses and children of eligible claimants may also be eligible for payment.

The next step is to seek court approval. A notice with details of the settlement approval hearings will be published in the near future.  If the settlement is approved by each of the courts, a further notice will be published which will explain the steps for making a claim.

If you or someone you know used Vioxx and then experienced a myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death or ischemic stroke, please contact us as soon as possible so we can determine if you are eligible for payment.  If the settlement is approved by the courts, there will be a limited time to make a claim and it can take a significant amount of time to get all of the documents necessary to prove your claim.
