Copyright 2012.  All rights reserved.

FOSAMAX®, used for the prevention and treatment of osteopenia and osteoporosis, has caused many people to suffer painful osteonecrosis (bone death) of the jaw and atypical femur fractures since its introduction in 1995.[1] These femur fractures often require surgery and involve a long recovery and rehabilitation process. Our attorneys are actively litigating cases in the FOSAMAX® jaw injury MDL in New York and in the recently-established FOSAMAX® femur fracture MDL in New Jersey.
