New Jersey Woman Sustains Femur and Shoulder Fracture after Years of Taking Fosamax

New Jersey Woman Sustains Femur and Shoulder Fracture after Years of Taking Fosamax

For several years, a New Jersey resident was taking the drug Fosamax under the guidance of her Rhuemotologist. In 2006, she suffered a femur fracture after a low-impact fall. This fall happened from a standing positioned and she fell down onto a cushioned surface.

The femur is the longest bone in the human body, and one of the most difficult to break. It connects your pelvic bone to your knees. Recently, doctors have been seeing more and more cases of femur fractures as a result of taking the drug Fosamax.

Fosamax fractures are typically severe. One physician said that these types of femur fractures looked like the patients had been in car accidents – not minor falls.

In 2008, the same New Jersey woman suffered another bone fracture. This time, it was in her shoulder. The shoulder fracture was the result of another low-impact fall onto a cushioned surface. After her second fracture, the woman said that her Rhuemotologist took her off the Fosamax.

New York law firm Weitz & Luxenberg is currently helping people who have been injured by Fosamax. Visit their website for more information at www.weitzlux.com.
