TAXOTERE LAWSUIT FAQ

Are Taxotere lawsuits a class action?

Taxotere lawsuits are not a class action. While there are numerous Taxotere lawsuits, each lawsuit is its own separate case. This means that each woman has her own specific case personal to her. Women injured by Taxotere and suffering from Taxotere side effects will be evaluated separately and apart from the other women injured by Taxotere side effects.

Did the manufacturers of Taxotere know that it could lead to permanent baldness in women?

Information obtained by our Taxotere attorneys, which mainly comes from detailed medical studies, indicates that approximately 3% of women that used Taxotere developed permanent baldness after using the drug. When combined with other chemotherapy drugs, the risk of permanent baldness increased to over 6%. Unfortunately, despite knowledge about the potential for permanent baldness, the manufacturers of Taxotere allegedly failed to warn women about this terrible potential risk. As a result, there is the potential for hundreds, and potentially thousands, of women to suffer from permanent baldness as a result of using Taxotere. It is expected that throughout the course of Taxotere lawsuits, additional information will come to light indicating that the manufacturers of Taxotere had more than enough information to know that there should be additional warnings and studies performed on Taxotere before it was used on women.

I was injured by Taxotere several years ago. Is there still time to bring a Taxotere lawsuit?
