www.forbes-global.com, 3 Mar 2004 [cached]
Nancy Hersh, a plaintiffs' lawyer at Hersh & Hersh in San Francisco, says that in other drug liability cases she has filed, companies have been hurt by not doing trials that they should have.The juries focused on "the fact that the studies could have been done to demonstrate safety or efficacy but they weren't," she says.
Hersh, who filed an early case against Wyeth (nyse: WYE - news - people ) for its recalled diet drugs and has also been litigating against Eli Lilly (nyse: LLY - news - people ) for its antipsychotic Zyprexa, has already taken on some Vioxx cases against Merck."It's too bad," she says, "because there's an inherent conflict of interest in all of this between the safety of the public and the bottom line of the manufacturer."
