With a Los Angeles jury working hard in deliberations for a week, Mr. Witzer is hoping they will reach a verdict sometime next week on behalf of his client, 22 year-old Christopher Trejo. Christopher is suing
Johnson & Johnson and their fully owned subsidiary McNeill Consumer Healthcare for the amount of $102 million.
Christopher suffered from Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN), pulmonary damage, near-blindness, and a hypoxic brain injury (as a result of TEN), which involved burns to over 100% of his body. Mr. Witzer and
his staff have been collecting evidence and interviewing experts for over 4 years since Christopher was originally hospitalized at only 16 years of age.
Christopher has bravely been working to mitigate his damages despite his injuries and limitations. However, his future as a doctor or a professional soccer player, have been tragically snatched from the
young man’s life potential.
Mr. Witzer put into evidence the net worth of Johnson & Johnson at $64 Billion, as well as McNeill Consumer Healthcare’s net worth at $8.8 Billion, for a total of $72,800,000,000.
Johnson & Johnson, in an effort to distance themselves from this popular analgesic, has denied any connection to the product, even though the company has represented on its own website that Motrin is their product.
