60 more complaints of blindness and another Viagra class action lawsuit launched against Pfizer

Formal legal allegations against Pfizer from Viagra users in class action lawsuits in Arizona and Texas

Scottsdale, Arizona - As more Viagra complaints and plaintiffs come in through www.lawyersandsettlements.com, Zimmerman Reed P.L.L.P and Greg Jones & Associates file a major class action lawsuit against the maker of Viagra, Pfizer.

With a key plaintiff suffering from blindness, Zimmerman Reed P.L.L.P goes to jury trial on behalf of similarly situated persons in Arizona. Seven counts are brought against Pfizer, which include fraudulent concealment, products liability, fraud and misrepresentation, and negligence, claiming that Pfizer failed to "use care in designing, developing, manufacturing, marketing, distributing, testing, warranting, and/or selling Viagra so as to avoid posing unnecessary health risks to users of such health products."

www.lawyersandsettlements.com continues to receive complaints and potential cases from Viagra users nationwide. With over 23 million men prescribed Viagra (Sildenafil) worldwide, there are a growing number of cases of alleged loss of vision due to a condition called nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). NAION is the leading cause of sudden vision loss in people over the age of 50 and affects approximately 6,000 people each year. Vision loss caused by NAION can be temporary, but it usually leads to permanent blindness.

On June 6, 2005, a similar class action lawsuit was filed against Pfizer by the law offices of Ronnie Penton and Greg Jones & Associates on behalf of Texas residents suffering from NAION allegedly caused by Viagra.

Pfizer is the largest research based Pharmaceutical company in the world with $52 billion in 2004 revenues. Alongside Viagra, Pfizer's other multi-million dollar products include Lipitor, Zoloft, Celebrex, Neurontin, and Norvasc.
