Wife was just standing when her femur fractured just below the hip joint. She fell to the ground, in agony. Orthopedic surgeon said she DID NOT have osteoporosis, in fact her bones were very solid. She took Fosamax for years, for the last three or four, was on generic alendronate Sodium. Now has a metal rod in the femur, held in by a pin and screw. She faces months of pain and healing. Need to find a law firm willing to take her case on contingency basis, since we are on Social Security, and cannot afford to pay a law firm.

We live in Amesbury, MA. Wife needs a walker to get around, had to spend money for plane trip back from MO, since she could not take a long car trip after surgery. Also had to pay to transport to KC Airport. Needed a shower chair, since she cannot stand to take a shower, or use the tub, because she cannot get out of it without great difficulty. The surgeon said without a doubt that Alendronate Sodium (Fosamax generic) caused the fracture. Since generics are not in the Fosamax lawsuit, guess we are screwed! She WAS on the brand name for about 8 years before the switch to generic.
