Fosamax Femur Lawsuits

If you have taken a course of Fosamax and you are now suffering from a femur break as a result, the Fosamax femur lawsuit lawyers at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. will be able to help you file a claim.

Fosamax is a type of bisphosphonate drug, generally used to help people deal with and treat osteoporosis. However, the issue now is that Fosamax is not as safe as people have been led to believe. In particular, those people who take Fosamax to help deal with their osteoporosis condition are at risk of severely painful femur breaks without warning.

Who might be given Fosamax on prescription?
In general, those people suffering from osteoporosis have been prescribed Fosamax to help them strengthen bone density and improve the quality of life they have despite their medical condition.

However, the Fosamax femur lawsuit specialists at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. are also aware of the fact that this drug can be used to treat other kinds of bone disease conditions including Paget’s disease. Therefore, whatever the circumstances are surrounding your particular dealings with Fosamax, contact our personal injury lawyers for more information and an assessment of your legal position without further delay.

What makes Fosamax dangerous and why should you file a Fosamax lawsuit for femur breaks?
In October 2010, the FDA issued a warning that bisphosphonates used to treat osteoporosis, including Fosamax, were linked to two distinct types of femur fractures that are very rare and very severe.

One of the femur fractures occurs near the hip joint and the other along the length of the bone itself. The fact that these Fosamax femur breaks are so rare makes them even more severe when they do happen and this is why there has been such an increase of Fosamax femur lawsuits across the US in recent years.

Thanks to many different studies, the FDA has good reason to believe that these rare femur breaks are linked to the long-term use of Fosamax. In one study, conducted by the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research Subtrochanteric Femoral Fracture Task Force, it was revealed that in more than 300 cases of femur breaks of this kind, 94% of the patients had been taking Fosamax for five years or more.

The Fosamax femur lawsuit attorneys at Ketchmark and McCreight, P.C. want to alert possible victims of femur breaks to the fact that it is probable they will feel a lot of groin and thigh pain for a few weeks prior to the femur break. Therefore, if you are taking Fosamax and you are experiencing these kinds of pains, make sure you consult a medical professional as soon as possible.

Femur breaks are not the only health problems associated with the drug Fosamax. If you have been taking Fosamax for a long period of time, it is also believed that you are also susceptible to the following health issues:

1. Osteonecrosis of the Jaw/Dead Jaw Syndrome
2. Esophageal Cancer
3. Atrial Fibrillation
4. Severe Musculoskeletal Pain
