Baycol litigation is rampant. And why? Because Bayer, big drug maker of Baycol, recalled it from the U.S. market because of reports of people dying, their kidneys or liver failing (renal failure) or skeletal muscle cells dying. These deaths were from a disease called Rhabdomyolysis.
Rhabdomyolysis is a potentially life-threatening condition where the release of a tremendous amount of muscle protein called myogloblin gets into the bloodstream. Myoglobin can get in your blood, stopping the kidneys from working right. Potassium released from the damaged cells can lead to heart attack.
There is evidence that Bayer knew that this drug was not safe, and that Bayer continued to market it as totally safe.
To battle the company that made this dangerous drug, you need a drug recall lawyer who knows this very specific area of law. If you or someone you love may have taken Baycol, please have them contact a Baycol attorney right away. They may be entitled to a Baycol settlement, but must have a Baycol lawyer who knows Baycol litigation. *
