Of course, it is very important to remember that not ever Fosamax femur fracture lawsuit is necessarily going to be successful. So this is article is just a guide to the type of compensation you might be looking at, rather than a guarantee.

In cases such as the case with Fosamax, which involves defective drugs, there are normally two types of compensation that plaintiffs can claim. These are economic losses and non-economic losses. Economic losses include expenses the plaintiff has incurred due to the injury and money that the plaintiff would have received if they had not been injured. Non-economic losses, on the other hand, do no need to be quantified as they regard physical anguish and pain and emotional trauma. Here are some examples of both economic and non-economic losses:

Medical expenses caused by your Fosamax femur fracture

If you have paid any medical bills to doctors, hospitals, for physical therapy, transportation or to caregivers, or bought any items such as a wheelchair which directly relate to your Fosamax femur fracture or other injury then you should be able to claim compensation for these expenses. You will need to provide receipts or other documentation proving that you paid those expenses.

Furthermore, you may also be eligible for compensation for any future expenses that you may need. A Fosamax femur fracture lawyer will be able to help advise you of what sort of long-term expenses you might be subject to that are related to your injury, such as lifelong care, medications or physical therapy as you recover. It is important that you think about expenses directly related to your Fosamax femur fracture that not only have already occurred but that are likely to continue racking up in the future.

Time spent off work and lost wages due to the Fosamax femur fracture

If you had to take time off work due to your Fosamax femur fracture and lost salary or profits from your business because of this time off work then these are considered economic losses. There are a number of considerations that might come into play in your lawsuit so it is important to discuss these with your Fosamax femur fracture lawyer.

For example, you might have to change careers due to the nature of the injury and this could involve a change in salary. Your Fosamax femur fracture lawyer may be able to claim compensation for these losses too. Also, if the injury you received related to your Fosamax femur fracture lawsuit is permanent or ongoing, then these might stop you from working. These are damages that you may also be able to claim as well.

Physical pain and suffering that the Fosamax femur fracture has caused

While it cannot be quantified in receipt form, your physical pain and emotional suffering that you have gone through due to the Fosamax femur fracture may also be able to be claimed against Merck. This physical pain and emotional trauma is something that you would most likely never have gone through if it were not for taking the drug in the first place.

It is difficult for your Fosamax femur fracture lawyer to put a monetary value on the pain and suffering you have endured. Often, the damages you are awarded for this type of suffering depend on how much the jury sympathizes with your case.

Loss of consortium after your Fosamax femur fracture


If your Fosamax femur fracture has affected your relationship with your spouse in a negative way then this may be a non-economic loss that you can also claim compensation for. If you have found that your Fosamax injury has caused problems between you and your partner, such as a lack of or reduced intimacy, emotional support or companionship then you might also be able to claim for these damages.

Not only that but your spouse can also make a claim against Merck for the loss of consortium in your relationship after the Fosamax injury.
