Get Compensated For Your Injuries
If you have suffered complications as a result of taking Fosamax, a Personal Injury Attorney can help. An attorney will determine the types of damages you may be able to recover through an injury claim.
The long term use of the osteoporosis drug, Fosamax, may be associated with an increased risk of femur fractures in postmenopausal women, according to the FDA. Fosamax, manufactured by Merck and Company, is primarily prescribed to postmenopausal women to prevent osteoporosis and Paget's disease. The drug is suppose to strengthen bones in women over age 40; although strong evidence has show the opposite.
Fosamax has been linked with increased fractures of the thighbone or femur. This bone is usually the strongest bone in the body, and the reported problems prompted the FDA to issue safety warnings about the drug in October of 2010.
If you were injured and plan on filing an injury claim related to Fosamax, consult with a Personal Injury Attorney as soon as possible.
A defective and dangerous product can cause significant, life-changing injuries. They are also among the most complicated types of claims to successfully defend. If you were injured by a defective product, you need a Personal Injury Attorney who can stand up for your legal rights against the team of lawyers who will be defending the product manufacturer, designer, retailer, or other liable party.
A Personal Injury Attorney can determine all of the liable parties involved in your case and help you fight to recover the compensation you need to recover. Contact a Personal Injury Attorney at Hupy and Abraham for a no-cost consultation of your case: 1.800.800.5678
