The most recent Fosamax lawsuits filed by the Firm involve plaintiffs who suffered atypical femur fractures.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
Fosamax femur fracture lawsuits are actively being filed by the Fosamax lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP on behalf of individuals who claim that their long-term use of the popular osteoporosis drug caused them to sustain femur fractures. The Firm recently filed new cases in the mass tort action, In re: Fosamax Litigation (No. 282 N.J. Super. Ct.), which is currently underway in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Atlantic County. The consolidated action is pending before the Honorable Carol E. Higbee. According to court documents, most of the plaintiffs filing lawsuits against Merck, the manufacturer of the drug, were prescribed Fosamax following a bone scan that indicated osteoporosis or osteopenia. The most recent Fosamax lawsuits filed by the Firm involve plaintiffs who suffered atypical femur fractures. In order to repair the broken femur, many of these plaintiffs had to undergo surgery.
“Plaintiffs filing lawsuits against Merck claim that as a result of their Fosamax use, they sustained pain and suffering as well as economic loss. These plaintiffs further claim that they would never have taken Fosamax if Merck had disclosed the risks associated with long-term use of the drug,” said Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing clients who have been injured by dangerous drugs and defective medical devices.
Fosamax Femur Fracture Lawsuits Against Merck
The claims made by the plaintiffs discussed above are representative of the hundreds of other lawsuits currently pending against Merck. Given that the femur is one on the strongest bones in the body, it is troubling that certain plaintiffs involved in the litigation sustained femur fractures as a result of low-impact falls, such as stepping off of a street curb or getting up from a chair.
Although none of the Fosamax femur fracture lawsuits pending before Judge Higbee have gone to trial yet, on June 4, 2012, she sent a letter to counsel notifying them of her intention to move forward with a trial involving a femur fracture injury. While the first trial has yet to be scheduled, discovery is moving forward.
The lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP are currently representing clients and actively filing cases on behalf of individuals who were allegedly injured as a result of taking Fosamax. Those who took Fosamax and sustained a femur fracture may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other injuries.
