Family of Dead Musician Sues Makers of Chantix
The parents of Dallas musician Carter Albrecht have filed a federal lawsuit over their son’s 2007 death. They are claiming Pfizer did not make the risks of the anti-smoking drug Chantix known, reports the Dallas/FortWorth Local News. The lawsuit also claims that at the time their son was taking the drug the label did not contain adequate warning of the drug’s possible side effects.
According to allegations in the lawsuit, Shortly after taking Chantix, in September 2007, Albrecht did not seem himself, the newspaper reports, and he became abusive, delusional and aggressive. After hitting his girlfriend several times, he then ran out of the house and was shot and killed when he tried to break into a neighbor’s house. Friends and family say Albrecht was never violent and believe Chantix played a role in his death.
