Breast Cancer Survivor Awarded Four Million

A jury recently awarded $4 million to a breast cancer survivor for compensatory and punitive damages.  They found that her hormone-replacement therapy drug Prempro caused the breast cancer.  And, Wyeth, Inc, the manufacturer of the drug, failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the knowable risk.  Prempro was a dangerous product and Wyeth was negligent in testing, studying and investigating the risks.

The jury took less than a day to deliberate and deliver a verdict.  This indicates that the plaintiff’s case was strong and the link between the drug and cancer was clear.
