Roughly one out of five American woman over the age of fifty (50) suffer from what is the most common type of bone disease–osteoporosis. It is characterized by thinning bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. As bones weaken, the possibility of fractures of the bone increases. To combat the increased risk of fractures in those suffering from osteoporosis, many physicians prescribe a group of drugs known as “bisphosphonates.” Among this group are Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, Atelvia, and Reclastl. Unfortunately, osteoporosis is not limited to women alone.
The Brad Hendricks Law Firm is now accepting inquiries related to injuries caused by Fosamax—the most popular drug prescribed by physicians which, tragically, has been connected with painful and debilitating fractures of the femur, one of the strongest bones in the human body. While manufacturers have profited from sales exceeding $3.5 billion, those injured by Fosamax and similar drugs bear the ultimate cost.
In recent years, women have reported femoral fractures that occurred as they performed what seemed to be perfectly safe activities, like walking down stairs, jumping rope, and exercising. One woman had suffered two broken femurs.
At The Brad Hendricks Law Firm, we believe those who have suffered painful femur fractures by Fosamax should be compensated, particularly where there is evidence that the drug actually causes the injury it is prescribed to prevent. If you or a loved one have been prescribed Fosamax and suffered a fracture of the femur while taking Fosamax, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
