Fosamax Femur Fractures
Fosamax lawsuits involving femur fracture allegations have been mounting since October 2010, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) cautioned that some studies had indicated patients taking bisphosphonates for osteoporosis were at heightened risk for atypical femur fractures. Among other things, the FDA advised doctors to consider periodic reevaluation of bisphosphonate therapy, particularly in patients who have been treated for over 5 years.*
Court records indicate that more than 2,000 Fosamax femur fracture claims are currently pending in New Jersey Superior Court. Another 850 lawsuits involving Fosamax and femur fractures have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation established in U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey. (In re: Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) Products Liability Litigation (No. II) - MDL No. 2243) Earlier this month, the first Fosamax femur facture claim to go to trial in the New Jersey state litigation was declared a mistrial, after the plaintiff became ill. Court documents do not indicate when that case might be rescheduled for trial. (Su v. Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., case number ATL-L-0789-11)
