Why is Taxotere dangerous?

Taxotere (docetaxel) is a chemotherapy agent manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis used to treat many cancer types. It by destroying tumor cells, but it is associated with many side effects. Although hair loss often occurs during treatment with chemotherapy medications, in some instances the alopecia caused by Taxotere is not reversible.

The manufacturer acknowledged the existence of this risk back in 2005, when the European regulators required them to include it in the drug’s label. However, the pharmaceutical company willfully withheld this information from the public for another 10 years in the United States. American patients were informed only in 2015, leaving many of them permanently bald

Our injury lawyers pointed out that the European prescribing information of docetaxel already acknowledged this risk since at least 2005, in fact.

How many people filed a Taxotere lawsuit?

If you suffered the grievous consequences of taking Taxotere, including suffering from loss of self-esteem, distress, depression and anxiety after your hair never grew back, you’re not alone. Our attorneys argue that Sanofi-Aventis failed to properly warn patients about this risk, leaving them unable to choose another less dangerous chemotherapy agent to fight cancer.

A total of 2,300 Taxotere lawsuits have been filed by plaintiffs across the whole country, and the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation centralized them into the MDL No. 2740. Chief Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt is now overseeing the cases in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. Join them to have a chance to be financially rewarded for all your suffering.

How much will filing a Taxotere lawsuit cost me?

Absolutely nothing. You do not owe us any money unless your case is successful in court since our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. Our law firm will charge you a standard percentage of your recovery only if a successful verdict is reached. This fee is set by the respective bar of the state within we operate. In simpler terms, it is in our best interest to achieve a victory together, and to maximize your settlement as well.

How much time do I have to file a Taxotere lawsuit?

The deadline within which each case must be presented is set by a law known as “Statute of Limitation”. This time limit is set by each state, and it ranges from 1 to 4 years since you experienced the injury you are suing for. In other words, you should file your case as soon as possible to minimize the risk of having it rejected by the court because of its state laws.

What are my chances of recovering money?

If you have not been warned about the risk of losing your hair permanently before treatment with Taxotere, the pharmaceutical company can be held liable for all the damage you had to endure.

Often, drugmakers prefer to pay a settlement to prevent the risk of losing a larger amount of money. A large trial may drag itself for several years, in fact, and they may choose to settle the first few bellwethers. If your case is solid enough, you have a high chance to receive a significant monetary compensation.
