Was Your Thigh Bone Fracture Caused By Fosamax®?
Originally prescribed as a preventative for bone loss, Fosamax® has now been linked to many cases of thigh bone (femur) fractures from minor stresses or impacts, or sometimes from no stress or impact at all. A small but growing number of women have experienced unusual thigh bone fractures after being prescribed Fosamax® by their physicians. The breaks occurred horizontally across the femur and happened when the women in question were doing very little physically. There is at least one case reported on ABC News of a woman who said “I walked into my husband’s bedroom and my leg just broke. I went down.”
If you or someone you love has been taking Fosamax® and has experienced a broken thigh bone, Goldberg & Osborne may be able to help you with your claim and recovery of compensation for your injuries.
Isn’t Fosamax® Supposed to Prevent Bone Breaks?
Fosamax® has demonstrated its short-term effectiveness in preventing certain kinds of bone damage in postmenopausal women. However, while many doctors now recommend a five year limit for Fosamax® therapy, there may already be hundreds of thousands of people who’ve been taking Fosamax® for much longer. Their bones may have already been adversely affected, leaving them very vulnerable to the consequences of having brittle bones.
