Now, we have to see how will this impact Fosamax users. Will they continue to file a lawsuit against the drug's manufacturer? Will some people see this result discouraging for their Fosamax problem? http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

They did win their fifth of such bellwether cases already. It would have been six if not for one case involving a woman from Florida where the jury decided in favor of the plaintiff but the damages awarded to plaintiff were reduced and the sum of which will also be appealed by Merck at a later date. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/

Government protection in action. Merck's VIOXX killed between 55,000 and 250,000. Merck's owners and CEO faced no criminal charges. The U.S government is Merck's greatest ally and protector.

Merck has indeed won in all trials but one. Although the plaintiff has already passed away, it's good to hear that her family received compensation for the damages she incurred from Fosamax. http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com

I wonder how many cases have been settled out of court, which is usually how these things are dealt with.

Merck may have won its 5th case against it over its popular osteoporosis drug Fosamax, but it has further more multi-district litigation cases to address, not to mention that the courts are now willing to prosecute over cases of atypical femur fractures as well as osteonecrosis of the jaw. http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us/case-against...
