More than 1,000 Fosamax lawsuits have been filed in state and federal courts against manufacturer Merck & Co., Inc. since 2006.
The lawsuits make numerous allegations including:
- Fosamax causes jaw death, known as osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ)
- Fosamax increases the risk of atypical subtrochanteric femur fractures
- Merck overstated the benefits of Fosamax and minimized the drug’s risks
Hundreds of federal Fosamax cases have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) under a single judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. An MDL helps to establish common legal issues and facilitate potential settlements.
