Parker Waichman representing South Carolina woman in Fosamax injury lawsuit

Filed July 31st, 2012 Laurie

A South Carolina woman claims taking the osteoporosis drug Fosamax caused her to suffer a rare type of femur fracture.

Her lawsuit filed in Superior Court of New Jersey claims the makers of Fosamax have known but failed to warn about the risk of atypical femur fractures associated with its top-selling drug that’s designed to prevent bone loss. She is being represented by the national law firm of Parker Waichman LLP, which represents numerous other victims of Fosamax femur fractures.

In this case, the South Carolina woman claims to have started taking Fosamax to stem bone loss caused by osteoporosis. Fosamax is a leading bisphosphonate drug and it was not until late 2010 that the Food and Drug Administration updated safety labels of Fosamax to indicate that it has been linked to an increased risk of atypical femur fracture.

The woman represented by this lawsuit claims she took Fosamax until July 2010, when she suffered a fracture to her right femur, generally considered one of the hardest bones to break in the human body.

The FDA warning also noted that taking Fosamax or other bisphosphonate drugs for longer than five years reduced its capabilities and only worked to increase the risk of this serious bone fracture.
