On Monday, February 14, 2011, a New Jersey (NJ) state court rejected claims by a Pennsylvania (PA) woman, Alison Rosenberg, that drug known as Fosamax made by Merck caused her jaw to deteriorate in a condition known as osteonecrosis. The plaintiff alleged that Merck failed to warn about the drug's risks. The plaintiff's attorney plans to appeal the verdict.
Merck still faces approximately 1,180 similar cases, which state that Fosamax caused osteonecrosis of the jaw in other plaintiffs.
Where there's smoke, there may be fire. Although not an absolute guarantee of fault, it's awfully suspicious that 1,180 other people have had similar problems with Fosamax. Not one, not two, but 1,180. If Merck's products are indeed causing patients such incredible injuries, the company should certainly step up to the plate and offer compensation.
Product liability cases are complicated, especially when they involve medications and related conditions.
