Bayer Baycol found not responsible for 82-year old man's injury. March 18, 2003, Bayer (the aspirin company) dodged a bullet in the personal injury attorney world. Bad news for those personal injury attorneys handling that specific Corpus Christi, Texas case, Eric Weinberg, Mikal Watts, Dawn Barrios and Rickey Brantley, and good news for the corporate-gun-for-hire Philip S. Beck, Germany, and for shareholders of Bayer AG, which had been beaten up. Bayer was obviously elated since the plaintiffs sought $560M in damages, see AP's Bayer Ruled Not Liable in $560M Drug Suit.

Bayer issued a press release Bayer Pleased With Verdict in Corpus Christi, Texas Baycol Case. Bayer does not try to claim that Baycol and Bayer are now off the hook entirely for the Baycol injuries caused by Bayer's negligence. In fact, Bayer Baycol claims are often valid and my firm's Bayer Baycol FAQs, Bayer Baycol FDA Withdrawal, and Bayer Baycol Dear Doctor letter pages discuss some of these issues.


In the March 15, 2003 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, an article reports that a Wisconsin spine surgeon implanted an artificial disc in the neck of a man suffering pain related to a disc herniation. This is significant news for many of Wisconsin personal injury clients who suffer spinal injury due to car crashes and automobile accidents and other accidents like falls.

For this reason, I put a page on my Wisconsin attorney website entitled Wisconsin spine surgeon says artificial disc may replace spinal fusion and herniated disc surgery. If you, a family member or friend has spine injury problems, then you may want to take a look.
