Were you injured by Fosamax and are struggling financially? If you need cash to pay bills while you wait for your lawsuit to settle, Nova Legal Funding can help. We offer pre-settlement loans for plaintiffs with pending lawsuits against the manufacturers of Fosamax.
Fosamax is intended to prevent and treat osteoporosis (bone loss) and general bone disease in adults. Introduced in 1995 by Merck, Fosamax was hailed as a superior treatment for people who were diagnosed with, or at risk for osteoporosis. Unfortunately, it was later discovered that the drug actually causes bones to weaken and crumble. Some of the more noteworthy side effects of Fosamax are femur fractures, dead jaw syndrome, esophagus problems, and low blood calcium.
In addition to the above-mentioned side effects, plaintiffs filed suit against Merck for damages including lost wages, medical expenses, and diminished quality of life.

Fosamax Lawsuits Information And Statistics
Merck & Co. traces its roots back to 1668 when the world’s first pharmaceutical and chemical company opened. Today, the company provides global health solutions with its pharmaceutical branches. It is the United States’ second-largest drug company. It employs more than 60,000 people with reported revenues of $40 billion dollars.
The Fosamax scandal was a huge blow to Merck & Co.’s reputation. The FDA updated warnings on the drug’s label to communicate the dangers and limitations of Fosamax. More than 1,000 patients filed lawsuits against Merck after suffering from side effects.
In 2010, a federal jury awarded $8 million to a woman who developed ONJ as a result of using Fosamax. Each case is different, so there is no guarantee that a patient will win a similar amount in the future.
