The first Fosamax civil lawsuit is scheduled for trial in the federal MDL in August 2009, and it will be followed by additional trials in October 2009, and January 2010. The lawyers and staff at The Law Offices of Mark C. Blane, APC, are continuing to review potential cases for individuals who have been diagnosed with osteonecrosis of the jaw or other injuries caused by side effects of Fosamax.
There currently at least 600 Fosamax (jaw lawsuits) pending against Merck for individuals who have developed this painful and disfiguring condition. All of the federal cases have been consolidated in an MDL, or Multi-district Litigation, which is centralized in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
If you or a loved one has used Fosamax and suffered side effects, please our law office for a free evaluation. Fosamax Information Links:
