Fosamax Femur Fracture Lawsuits Share Striking Similarities
The foundation for the Fosamax lawsuits described above is similar to hundreds of other lawsuits currently pending against Merck. Although Fosamax is prescribed to increase bone density, the allegations made by plaintiffs that the Firm is currently representing are similar to those of others filing lawsuits against Merck. According to court documents, these lawsuits allege that:
- Fosamax caused plaintiffs to sustain atypical femur fractures; and
- Merck minimized the risks associated with the drug while overstating the benefits in order to aggressively market Fosamax to the public.
In addition to seeking damages for severe and personal injuries, plaintiffs are also asking for compensation for mental anguish, diminished enjoyment of life, as well as the need for future medical treatment, and follow-up.
