Alendronate Sodium Lawyers in Brooklyn
Alendronate Sodium, which is the generic term for the widely popular drug Fosamax, is designed to treat bone diseases such as osteoporosis. While these drugs are marketed to help people with bone diseases, the bisphosphonates in the drugs can also harm bones and can lead to osteonecrosis of the jaws and a fracturing of the femur in patients.
Unfortunately, the manufacturer of Fosamax and its generic counterpart did not warn doctors of its dangers, until forced to by the FDA in October 2010, which resulted in serious injuries to thousands of patients. At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, in New York, our firm has experienced representing people harmed by generic Fosamax, as well as the family members of those killed by dangerous and defective drugs.
