Representing Clients In Defective Fosamax Claims
Fosamax was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1995 and was marketed as an effective treatment for osteoporosis. Soon after its release, Fosamax was generating over $3 billion in sales annually.
Unfortunately, advertisements failed to explain the complications associated with Fosamax. It belongs to a series of drugs known as bisphosphonates, which have been known to carry a higher risk of serious bone disease. Consumers have also suffered other severe side effects from the drug, including:
- Osteonecrosis (ONJ), dead jaw or jaw death
- Femur fracture
- Other bone fracture
- Hip, shoulder or knee necrosis
If you or a loved one has endured complications from Fosamax, we will investigate thoroughly to uncover any acts of negligence. The pharmaceutical litigation attorneys at our firm work with industry-leading experts to help determine any liability factors, including false advertising, product defects and manufacturing defects.
Our aggressive approach often prompts insurance companies to make large settlement offers covering medical expenses, rehabilitation, lost wages and other expenses incurred from medical malpractice. If the settlement offer is too low, we will not hesitate to pursue a favorable trial verdict.
