Fosamax Causing Femur Fractures Lawsuits

No longer accepting these casesFemur fractures have become a serious concern for patients who take Fosamax for bone related complications. The femur is the largest bone in the body, located in the thigh.

It is very rarely broken, and under normal circumstances, extremely hard to fracture. However, individuals who take Fosamax are at risk of fractures due to the drug’s ability to inhibit the body’s ability to repair bone.

This can make bones stiff and brittle, as well as prone to injury. Many patients have reported stress fractures in their femur bones that occurred while they were participating in routine daily activities such as walking or getting out of bed.

Femur fractures require medical attention and take time to repair. Lawsuits are currently being filed for patients who suffered from femur fractures. If you or a loved on has suffered bone fractures as a result of taking Fosamax, you may have a case against the drug’s manufacturer.
