Taxotere & Hair Loss
Nationwide Product Liability Attorneys
Taxotere was created to treat cancer, primarily breast cancer. After it was distributed, a number of women who took Taxotere in combination while undergoing chemotherapy were alarmed to find that their hair was not growing back. It is now confirmed that Taxotere comes with the risk of developing alopecia—a form of permanent hair loss.
Victims of this side effect have undergone severe emotional distress, and may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer. The national product liability lawyers of Johnston Law Group have experience with these cases and frequently fight legal battles on behalf of the victims.
Why Permanent Hair Loss is Grounds for Legal Action
Many people do not realize their permanent hair loss entitles them to compensation. The fact is that allowing people to risk alopecia without making them aware they were taking a risk is a serious breach of trust on the part of the manufacturer. Hair loss can be a heavy emotional burden, especially for women, and it can affect their day to day life as well as their overall well-being.
It was eventually discovered that Sanofi, Taxotere's manufacturer, did know of the risks their product carried and informed other countries, but not the United States. This was willful negligence by Sanofi, and left the victims feeling angry and betrayed. These women have endured a difficult battle with cancer, only to then be left with an unexpected, lifelong issue. Sanofi should be held accountable for their actions.
