New York Personal Injury Lawyers Munawar & Andrews-Santillo File Multi-Million Dollar Litigation Against Red Bull

Share Article

Named partner Ashley Andrews-Santillo and partner James S. Paglinawan, have been retained to take on the global energy drink giant, Red Bull, for allegedly causing the death of Georgia native William Jacob Wade.


We are truly humbled and inspired to be litigating this matter.

New York-based personal injury law firm, Munawar & Andrews-Santillo, has been recruited across state lines to litigate a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the internationally known energy drink company, Red Bull, in Savannah, Georgia. The firm, along with local Georgia attorney Charles J. Bowen of The Bowen Law Group, filed a complaint on behalf of the deceased William Jacob Wade’s estate, as well as Mr. Wade’s surviving mother, Ann Edenfield Lemley.

The crux of the complaint alleges that the energy drink put out by Red Bull causes health risks that the company was obliged to warn customers of but failed to do so. The undisclosed dangers to consumers of Red Bull – which include increases in hypertension and cardiovascular issues – are so serious that they can result in an individual’s death, the complaint alleges. In the case of Mr. Wade, it is alleged that his consumption of Red Bull caused him to suffer aortic dissection, hypertension, and other cardiovascular problems, ultimately resulting in his death on August 8, 2014. As Red Bull allegedly knew or should have known of these dangers and failed to warn its consumers, the complaint seeks to hold the company responsible for Mr. Wade’s demise.

“First, we would like to thank Mrs. Lemley for entrusting our firm to fight for justice for her and her deceased son,” said Ashley Andrews-Santillo, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. “We are truly humbled and inspired to be litigating this matter. Of course, no amount of money could ever replace Mrs. Lemley’s son, but perhaps this lawsuit will also help deter companies from selling dangerous products without warning customers in the future. Hopefully, when all is said and done, we will be able to show the world how valuable it is to have an experienced advocate by your side.”
