San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and now, can actively provide an expert opinion in view of the recent news on alleged Fosamax Femure Fractures and Fosamax lawsuits.
Court data indicate that the next trial of a Fosamax femur fracture claim is expected to proceed on May 5, as part of the Fosamax Multidistrict Litigation [MDL 2243, U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey – In re: Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) Products Liability Litigation (No. II)]. 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.
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). Court documents, updated by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation reveal that on December 16, there were 899 cases pending in the Fosamax Products Liability Litigation (MDL 1789), and 1,107 cases pending in the Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) Products Liability Litigation (No. II) (MDL 2243).
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 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.
AttorneyOne.com has further information on Fosamax lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
