New York, New York (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
According to court records, the next Case Management Conference scheduled in the Fosamax side effects litigation currently pending in New Jersey Superior Court, Atlantic County, has been scheduled for November 9, 2012, at 11:00 a.m., Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. Fosamax lawsuits pending in the New Jersey litigation allege long-term use of the drug caused users to suffer serious Fosamax side effects, including Fosamax femur fractures and Osteonecrosis of the Jaw, a bone-decaying jaw disorder. (In re: Fosamax Litigation, No. 282, N.J. Super. Ct.)*
Fosamax Side Effects
Fosamax is an oral bisphosphonate used to prevent fractures in people who have bone weakening diseases like osteoporosis and Paget’s disease. In October 2010, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that people taking Fosamax and other bisphosphonates for osteoporosis are at risk of suffering atypical femur fractures.** Just this past May, an FDA-commissioned analysis published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that there was little benefit in taking Fosamax and similar drugs for longer than five years. The report cited serious Fosamax side effects, including femur fractures and ONJ.***
The Fosamax lawsuits currently pending in New Jersey involve both femur fractures and ONJ. In a letter dated, June 4, 2012, Judge Carol Higbee, who is overseeing the Fosamax side effects litigation, stated her intention to schedule bellwether trials for cases involving Fosamax femur fractures. Discovery for Fosamax femur fracture lawsuits is moving forward.
Bernstein Liebhard LLP is actively filing Fosamax lawsuits on behalf of individuals who were allegedly injured as a result of taking Fosamax. If you suffered a femur fracture, ONJ, or some other Fosamax side effect, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other injuries.
