Georgia Fosamax, Actonel, and Boniva Lawyer
A new report says there is a clear association between a rare form of thigh-bone fractures and long-term use of a class of bone-strengthening drugs called bisphosphonates – more commonly known by such brand names as Fosamax, Actonel, and Boniva (source: ABC World News with Diane Sawyer).
At Pope, McGlamry, Kilpatrick, Morrison & Norwood, P.C., our Georgia attorneys are presently investigating claims involving Fosamax, Actonel, and Boniva.
If you have suffered a thigh-bone fracture after taking one of these drugs, you may be entitled to compensation for your suffering. Our Atlanta and Columbus lawyers have extensive experience with product liability claims, specifically those involving dangerous or defective drugs.
Pharmaceutical companies are required by law to thoroughly test their products before they go to market. When an unsafe drug makes it to market, thousands of people are at risk for personal injury.

A recent American Society of Bone and Mineral task force investigated reports on 310 osteoporosis patients who reported a rare form of femur fracture. The study found that 94 percent of patients had been taking Fosamax, Actonel, or Boniva.
Dr. Elizabeth Shane, a professor of medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, told ABC News that “Based on the report we now feel that there is a definitive relationship between these class of drugs and these fractures, and it’s even stronger in those taking those drugs for a long time.”
Bisphosphonates are big business. In 2008, bisphosphonates sales exceeded $3.5 billion, according to data from IMS Health. Over 37 million prescriptions were written for Fosamax, the most popular of the drugs.
At our Georgia law offices, we want to hold drug manufacturers responsible for the injuries their drugs cause.
