On August 15, a New York federal judge ruled in Fosamax Multidistrict Litigation that generic manufacturers can be held liable for failing to match their warning labels to the brand name label. In light of this news, AttorneyOne, a recognized authority on law, informs that they are now providing advice, including how to get in contact with legal counsel, to people potentially affected by Fosamax side effects.

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 lawsuits and potential Fosamax Class Action lawsuit.

On August 15, a New York federal judge ruled in Fosamax Multidistrict Litigation that generic manufacturers can be held liable for failing to match their warning labels to the brand name label (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.

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). 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.

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.”

Court documents updated on August 15, by the US Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, indicate that there are 978 actions pending in the Fosamax MDL No 1789.
