Allegations Brought by a Taxotere Lawsuit
The FDA updated Taxotere labels in 2015 to include alopecia, or permanent hair loss. Many women claim that if they had known the permanent risks associated with Taxotere, they would have chosen a different chemotherapy drug that is known to be equally, if not more, effective and doesn’t cause alopecia. Taxotere lawsuits hold the drug manufacturer responsible for the following:
- Failure to thoroughly test the drug before selling it
- Failure to disclose all information about potential side effects to the public
- Failure to inform patients about dangers and risks before selling it
- Using misleading advertising to sell the drug
- Hiding information from doctors about associated risks
- Minimizing the perceived risks of the drug
Drug Maker Knew of Possible Permanent Side Effects of Using Taxotere
At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg, we believe that the makers of Taxotere knew about the inherent risks of breast cancer patients developing alopecia, or permanent hair loss, after being administered chemotherapy solutions containing Taxotere. We also believe that the drug maker purposely hid these facts from the public by suggesting their drug to be more effective than other taxanes (certain drugs used in chemotherapy solutions belong to a family of drugs called taxanes). There may also be evidence supporting the claim that another taxane (Taxol) may be more effective without the risk of permanent baldness (alopecia).
