Studies have shown that the popular osteoporosis drug could increase the risk of the painful and potentially disfiguring jaw injury, known as osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ, Dead Jaw or Bis-Phossy Jaw). Other studies have indicated that the medication could also lead to necrosis of the hip, knee and shoulder. Long-term use of the medication has also been linked to a risk of a femur fracture on Fosamax.

Fosamax inhibits bone turnover, which could lead to permanent bone decay. Although Merck was aware of this serious risk, they failed to adequately warn patients or notify the medical community about these potential Fosamax side effects.

The Fosamax attorneys at Saiontz & Kirk have experience pursuing claims against large corporations as a result of problems caused by prescription medications.

As a result of Merck’s failure to adequately research their drug or warn about the risk of Fosamax problems, users have been left with serious and potentially debilitating injuries.


Merck currently faces more than 1,000 lawsuits over Fosamax, and new cases are continuing to be reviewed and filed in courts throughout the United States.

Our Fosamax law firm previously investigated all cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that there are never any out of pocket expenses to have an experienced lawyer represent and there are no attorney fees unless we secure a recovery for damages from Fosamax.

If you or a family member have taken Fosamax for osteoporosis or Paget’s disease of the bone, and developed problems with the jaw, hip, shoulder, knee, shoulder or femur bone, you should seek a free consultation regarding your legal rights.
