Taxotere Attorney in Louisville, KY
Pursuing Justice for Victims of Defective Drugs
Brett H. Oppenheimer, PLLC is currently evaluating consumer complaints involving Taxotere, a chemotherapy drug that has been linked with permanent hair loss (alopecia). Taxotere is most commonly prescribed for the treatment of breast cancer and metastatic prostate cancer. While hair loss is a common side effect of chemotherapy, numerous patients across the nation have reported that their hair never grew back after treatment using Taxotere.
Our firm believes that negligent drug companies should be held fully responsible when their products, which they market as safe, harm innocent people. If you or a loved one has suffered permanent loss of hair after taking this defective drug, you may be entitled to compensation. We encourage you to contact our firm to learn whether you have a viable product liability case, how much your case may potentially be worth, and what legal options may be available to you. Our Louisville Taxotere lawyer has more than 25 years of experience advocating for the injured and has successfully recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements.
Taxotere Manufacturer Failed to Warn of the Risk
Sanofi-Aventis, the maker if Taxotere, is widely accused of failing to adequately warn patients and physicians of the increased risk of alopecia. Claims are being filed all over the country alleging that if Sanofi-Aventis had properly warned of the risks associated with the medication, patients could have been prescribed Taxol, a different and more effective chemotherapy drug that does not carry an alopecia risk.
Taxotere has also been linked to the following additional side effects:
- Taste changes
- Bone, muscle, or joint pain
- Mouth or throat sores
- Weakness and fatigue
- Weight gain with fluid retention
- Peripheral neuropathy
