Taxotere side effects leads to lawsuits
Taxotere is a drug that is administered for the treatment of several cancers, most prominently breast cancer. Patients in lawsuits against the maker of the chemotherapy medication claim a link to the increased risk of developing permanent hair loss.
Taxotere was the only alternative to a naturally occurring medication created by its biggest competitor to treat the same cancers. It was touted by its maker, Sanofi-Aventis, as being significantly better than its competitor. However, recently news the truth has been uncovered about the drug Taxotere.
The FDA issued a statement to Sanofi-Aventis to cease using “mis-leading”promotional materials in early 2009.

Cancer is a very serious illness that most would do anything to recover from. To overstate the benefits of a drug that save peoples lives serves to only make the makers of the medication more profitable while preying on the patients.
What About My Taxotere Lawsuit?
Plaintiffs in Taxotere lawsuits had an alternative, naturally occurring, medication they could have been prescribed. However, because the side effects of the drug were unknown and the benefits of the drug were at times greatly exaggerated, they were prescribed a drug that caused them more pain and suffering.
Greg Jones Law has sued many major drug manufacturers for failing to warn of the dangers of their drugs. We believe that these are very serious allegations and want to stand with cancer patients for justice.
