"Meyerkord and Meyerkord, a Legacy of Legal Innovation"
Phusion Projects is in the hot seat again over its controversial drink, Four Loko. The drink is wildly colorful and originally contained a high percentage of alcohol and caffeine. However, in November the caffeine was dropped from the ingredient list. The drink is now being blamed for the death of a teenager after he drank the beverage, became disoriented and was hit by a car. The teenager's parents hired a lawyer to see to it that their son's death was not in vain. The lawyer filing the wrongful death action on behalf of the young man's family is contending that Phusion Projects was 'careless and negligent' when it made the product that 'desensitizes' consumers to the effects of the alcohol on their body and increases the possibility of alcohol-related injuries. While Phusion Projects believes the death of the teen is tragic, the Chicago based company defends itself by saying that this tragedy simply puts the societal misuse of alcohol into the spotlight, while clearly accepting no fault for the death.
