20 Jul Taxotere Lawsuits Filed Due to Permanent Hair Loss
Women who received Chemotherapy and experienced disfiguring permanent hair loss are filing lawsuits against the maker of Taxotere. If you underwent Chemo Therapy and experienced permanent hair loss, please contact our office today for free information on filing a lawsuit against the maker of Taxotere.
What the Taxotere Lawsuit IS NOT About
Everyone is aware that Chemotherapy often results in temporary hair loss however, the makers of Taxotere failed to warn women and their doctors that unlike other Chemo Therapy products which result in temporary hair loss, Taxotere frequently results in permanent hair loss and strong evidence exists that the manufacturers of Taxotere were aware of this issue and choose not to warn women in the United States even though the manufacturer did warn women and doctors in other countries.
If a woman’s only choice was to use Taxotere knowing that they might experience permanent hair loss, or potentially die of cancer, many women would have elected to use Taxotere knowing the risks, however this was not the case. Other Chemotherapy treatments that have proven to be just as effective as Taxotere exists and do not pose the risk of permanent hair loss.
What The Taxotere Lawsuit Is About
By failing to warn women of the risks associated with Taxotere and withholding information from women and doctors in the United States, while warning women in other countries, the makers of Taxotere deprived women in the United States of the ability to make an informed choice:
- Do I accept the use of Taxotere knowing that using Taxotere may result in permanent disfiguring hair loss ?
- Do I opt to use another chemo therapy product which is just as effective as Taxotere but does not pose the significant risk of permanent disfiguring hair loss?
Obviously if women and their doctors had been given the truthful information regarding the risks associated with Taxotere versus the benefits as compared to other chemotherapy products, very few would have chosen to use Taxotere.
The most apparent reason for the maker of Taxotere to have withheld the truth regarding the risks associated with Taxotere was greed. This blatant greed has resulted in a large number of women being forced to endure the permanent disfiguring condition of being bald, having no eye brows as well as other disfiguring conditions which could have been avoided.
Status of the Taxotere Lawsuit
Taxotere Lawsuits have already been filed in a number of States and Federal Jurisdiction. It is likely that a Taxotere Multidistrict Litigation, which would function somewhat like a Taxotere Class Action Lawsuit, will be formed at some time in the near future. However, regardless of whether a Taxotere Class Action Lawsuit or other mass litigation occurs or not, women who have experienced disfiguring permanent hair loss due to the use of Taxotere can file claims now. Contact our office today for more information.
