Rottenstein Law Group Advocates Using All Available Forms of Legal Action to Recover Damages Due to Fosamax Femur Fracture Injuries
(New York, NY, May 2, 2011) The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims stemming from the severe side effects of the drug Fosamax, believes that the best way to recover compensation for harms suffered as a result of taking the dangerous drug is to use all the weapons in one’s legal arsenal when dealing with irresponsible drug manufacturers.
A Louisiana woman has filed a lawsuit against drug manufacturers Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. (formerly known as Merck & Co., Inc.), Watson Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Barr Laboratories Inc. in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. The federal action has been assigned to United States District Judge Carl J. Barbier.
In her complaint, Josephine P. Naccio alleges that she was prescribed Fosamax for long-term treatment of osteoporosis. As a result of her taking the drug, she suffered a femur fracture. Ms. Naccio is claiming that the drug manufacturers “over-promoted” Fosamax for so-called “off-label,” or non-approved, uses. She claims that she would not have taken Fosamax if she had been aware of the dangers associated with long-term use of the drug.
The causes of action asserted by Ms. Naccio against the defendants include composition defect, design defect, inadequate warning, breach of express warranty, breach of express and implied warranty of fitness for ordinary use, and redhibition—a civil cause of action available in the state of Louisiana against a seller and/or manufacturer of a defective product. This cause of action is similar to “lemon laws” that exist in other states. Ms. Naccio is seeking an award of actual damages, treble and punitive damages, interest, court costs and attorney’s fees.
The Rottenstein Law Group advises anyone with a friend or family member who has been prescribed Fosamax or another osteoporosis drug to recommend to that person that he or she consult a physician immediately, then speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer. The Rottenstein Law Group lawyers have a total of more than 25 years of experience fighting for the rights of clients who have suffered harm due to the negligence of large corporations.
