If you or a loved one sustained an atypical femur fracture as a result of Fosamax use, you may want to consult with a Fosamax attorney.  You may be able to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.  An experienced Fosamax attorney will be happy to answer your questions and inform you of your legal rights and options.

Can an Fosamax attorney evaluate my potential lawsuit?

A Fosamax attorney at our firm will evaluate and review your potential Fosamax case for free.

How much will it cost me if a Fosamax attorney agrees to take my case?

If one of our Fosamax attorneys agrees to take your case, you will generally pay nothing unless there is a recovery.  If there is a recovery, whether by settlement, jury verdict or some other alternative dispute resolution procedure, Bernstein Liebhard will ordinarily receive a percentage of that total recovery.  The fee arrangement is clearly set out in a retainer agreement between the client and the firm.  Our Fosamax attorneys would be happy to review this agreement with you.

If you take my case, what will I have to do?

If we take your case, you will be a significant part of our team.  Our Fosamax attorneys will ask you to help gather the information that will be used to support your case.  You will need to keep us informed about your medical treatment and physical condition.  Additionally, you may have to be evaluated by other doctors and may have to be deposed.  If your case does not settle, you may have to be present for the trial.

When should I file my Fosamax lawsuit?

Every state has a “statute of limitations,” which gives individuals a certain amount of time to file a case.  Some states require that any potential claim be filed within a set time after the injury occurred.  Other states start the clock running once the connection between the injury and potential cause can be reasonably established.  Any lawsuit arising from an injury must be filed within the certain time limit or the injured person’s legal claim will be barred and the right to sue will be lost forever.  One of the first things a Fosamax attorney will do in investigating your potential claim is research statute of limitations issues.

Can I talk to a Fosamax attorney about my case for free?

Yes.  If you want to talk to a Fosamax attorney about a case, just call on the phone and ask.  After you have answered a few basic questions with one of our staff members, one of our Fosamax attorneys will be happy to discuss your case for free.

How long will my Fosamax lawsuit take?

Even though many cases settle before trial, this does not usually happen until both sides have prepared the case.  Generally, lawsuits take about two years from filing to trial.  This can vary significantly based on the complexity of your case, the congestion of court dockets, and various other factors.

Our best advice is to be patient and to give one of our Fosamax attorneys a call if you have any questions.  Our Fosamax attorneys are always willing to tell you exactly what is happening with your case.  In the meantime, you can trust that our team of Fosamax attorneys are working hard for you.
