AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Fosamax Side Effects lawsuits.
Bloomberg reported on April 4th, 2013 that the second Fosamax trial over claims Merck allegedly hid risks that Fosamax could cause femur fractures is set to begin April 9th (Superior Court of New Jersey, case no. ATL-L-0789-11-MTF). Fosamax, manufactured by Merck, belongs to the class of drugs known as bisphosphonates. It was approved by the FDA in 1995 and developed to treat post-menopausal osteoporosis and Paget’s disease of bone.
According to Bloomberg, there are 3,300 lawsuits alleging Fosamax caused broken legs and another 1,230 lawsuits alleging the drug caused jaw-related injuries.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Fosamax severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Fosamax lawsuits. “For that reason”, he continues, “our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
As Reuters reported on February 5th, 2013 Merck was ordered by federal jury to pay $285,000 in a lawsuit over the risks associated with Fosamax (case no. 1:2008cv04119, New York Southern District Court). In the lawsuit plaintiff claims she took Fosamax from 2000 to 2006 and, as a result, she suffers severe and permanent personal injuries to the jaw bone, including osteonecrosis of the jaw.
