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.

As Reuters published on December 9, Merck agreed to pay $27.7 million to settle lawsuits alleging that Fosamax caused jaw bones to deteriorate (MDL 1789, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York). 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. Court data, updated by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation indicate that on November 18, there were 899 cases pending in the Fosamax Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 1789).

According to court data, on October 3, a New York federal judge delayed the transfer of hundreds of Fosamax lawsuits in the Multidistrict Litigation to give the plaintiffs and the manufacturer the opportunity to potentially reach a settlement. Instead of starting the lawsuits transfers on November 1, the judge said that they were scheduled to begin on December 2.
