Recently, there has been quite a few drugs and devices released to the public that have led to serious medical conditions, and resulted in countless recalls and lawsuits. If you or someone you love lives in the Taunton/Raynham area and has been affected by such a recall, it can be difficult to know where to begin to look for help.
One such drug that has recently caused many injuries is Fosamax, a medicine intended to treat postmenopausal osteoporosis. After some time however, individuals that had been prescribed Fosamax were found to be suffering from atypical fractures of the femur, a side affect that the manufacturers failed to warn the consumer about. The FDA warned doctors that Fosamax and other drugs for osteoporosis could result in these fractures and doctors were instructed to continue checking with the patients, especially if the drug was prescribed for a time period over 5 years.
Many cases against Fosamax and its manufacturers are just now beginning to be settled in court.
The FDA has made it easier for patients who have been seriously injured as the result of a device to report their injuries, with the creation of the MedWatcher Mobile Application. This app will allow consumers to submit reports and pictures of their injuries to the FDA from their smart phone or tablet.
Studies have also shown that similar injuries have resulted from the generic form of Fosamax as well. If you have been affected by the use of these drugs, it is important to quickly contact an experienced legal professional who can evaluate your case and help you get what you deserve.
