Family Sues Red Bull For $85 Million For Wrongful Death

The family of a Brooklyn man who died shortly after consuming a Red Bull is suing the company for $85 million, claiming that the energy drink gave the otherwise healthy father a fatal heart attack.

33-year-old Cory Terry was playing a game of basketball at Bed-Stuy’s Stephen Decatur Middle School in 2011 when he drank a can of Red Bull. After ingesting the drink, Terry became “lightheaded and collapsed.” He died of dilated cardiomyopathy, otherwise known as heart failure.

It is still unknown whether energy drinks cause deaths in the United States. However, there are many products on store shelves which are found to be harmful and many times the manufacturer of those products knew, or should have known of the dangers.  Many diet pills and stimulants have been taken off the market due to dangers to humans.  Time will tell whether Red Bull is one of these products.

If you or a loved one have been permanently harmed after taking energy drinks, diet supplements or other diet pills, contact Jared Levine of Morgan Levine Dolan.
