San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 05, 2013
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 and ONJ lawsuits.
According to court documents, on July 1st, a US Federal judge denied Merck’s attempt to wipe out a $285,000 plaintiff verdict on Fosamax jaw deterioration (case no. 1:08-cv-04119, 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. In the lawsuit the plaintiff claims that 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.
Court data, updated on May 15, indicate that there were 1,064 cases pending in the Fosamax Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 2243, US District Court, New Jersey).
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 at 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.”
On April 5, a Pennsylvania woman filed a lawsuit in St. Clair County Circuit Court (case no. 13-L-185) alleging that the makers of Fosamax made exaggerated claims of the drug’s benefits. In the lawsuit the plaintiff claims that Fosamax weakened her bones, increasing the risk of injury.
