San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 07, 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 lawsuits.
According to court documents, the next monthly management conference of the Fosamax Litigation has been scheduled for February 21st, 2013 (No. 282, New Jersey Superior Court). 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.
Court documents indicate that on February 4th, 2013, more than 2,500 lawsuits were pending in the Fosamax Multicounty Litigation. Plaintiffs claim they suffer femur fractures, jaw problems or other injuries from taking the drug.
A study article published in October 2012 by The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism indicated that atypical femur fractures patients while taking bisphosphonates (incl. Fosamax) experienced delayed healing, prodromal pain, and persisting risk of a contralateral and/or other fracture.
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 for 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 June 29th, 2012 a South Carolina woman filed a lawsuit in New Jersey District Court (case no. 3:2012cv04014) alleging she suffered femur fracture from her use of Fosamax.
