Find Out If You Have A Taxotere Case

If you or a loved one suffered through cancer treatments that caused permanent hair loss, you may need to speak with an Arizona Taxotere hair loss lawsuit attorney. Cancer and the treatments that come with it are difficult enough to bear physically, emotionally, and mentally, and patients rely on the medications they are given to work as promised and to provide them with comfort and not additional pain and suffering. Temporary hair loss is often a complicated side effect of cancer, and for those patients who suffer permanent hair loss as a result of using Taxotere, the painful daily reminders of cancer and their suffering can be too much to bear.

What Is Taxotere?

Taxotere is a treatment used for the treatment of breast cancer, and many other additional forms of cancer. Taxotere is a part of the Taxane family of drugs, and is a widely used form of chemotherapy treatment. Taxotere was first approved for use by the FDA in 1996 and is marketed by Sanofi Aventis. At the time of its release, Taxotere was heavily marketed as being a superior alternative to Taxol, the main competitor treatment to Taxotere, which was approved by the FDA four years earlier, in 1992.

What Side Effects Do I Need to Discuss with My Arizona Attorney?

Although chemotherapy and other cancer treatments are widely known to have undesirable side effects, it is important that you don't hold any information back from your Arizona Taxotere hair loss lawsuit attorney. Your attorney's job is to determine the significance of the impact your side effects have had on your ability to make a recovery and get back to enjoying your life as much as possible. Some of the most common side effects you may be experiencing as a result of taking Taxotere include: severe vomiting, severe diarrhea, body aches, fever, chills, extreme weakness, easy to bruise all over, increased heart rate, difficulty in concentrating, and more.

More serious side effects of Taxotere that you may not have considered include permanent hair loss, death, cardiovascular issues, damage to the nerves or nerve endings, macular degeneration or other issues, allergic reactions, and more. If you suffered serious side effects, like permanent hair loss, as a result of using Taxotere, you may be able to file a lawsuit to get help with your recovery.

Who Will Be Held Responsible for My Taxotere Hair Loss?

If you've suffered permanent hair loss as a result of using Taxotere, you will naturally want to know who is responsible and whether they'll really be held liable; working with a skilled personal injury attorney can help you to get the answer to that question and the many others that you likely have crowding your mind. Legally, drug manufacturers are required to notify the public and medical professionals of the possible risks associated with use of their product. In December 2015, the FDA required updates to labeling for Taxotere, which indicates that the product may be responsible for permanent hair loss. But this doesn't help those individuals who suffered prior to these changes being made. Working with an Arizona personal injury attorney can help you to hold the responsible parties liable for their negligence and their role in causing your permanent hair loss and other serious complications.

Can I Get Compensation for My Taxotere Hair Loss?

Every case presented on the complications of chemotherapy drugs is different, and that's why it is so important to work closely with a skilled Arizona Taxotere hair loss attorney. Only an attorney with experience in handling product liability lawsuits can help you to truly understand your rights, responsibilities, and options after you've lost your hair or suffered other serious side effects. For most victims of hair loss due to use of Taxotere, some compensation may be available. This compensation often covers medical expenses for the present needs of the victim and for their long term care, psychological and emotional counseling to help the victim regain strength of heart to continue moving on to a full recovery, pain and suffering felt by the victim, loss wages due to not working throughout the attempt to make a recovery, and more. It is important for victims to work closely with their personal injury attorneys to ensure that no details are left out so an appropriate settlement can be reached.
