Taxotere Facts & Statistics

Taxotere is currently prescribed worldwide in over 90 countries.
It’s unknown how many women have received it for treatment of breast cancer in the USA, but Sanofi has a 30-40% market share which gave them a gross income from Taxotere prior to generics of  3-4 billion and use has increased (Taxotere  was marketed aggressively for a wide variety of cancers).
Taxotere  came on the market for use in breast cancer treatment in 1996. The generic versions were approved in March,2011. They are Docefrez (docetaxel anhydrous) and Docataxel.
US sales of Taxotere have declined since the introduction of the generic version. There are a number of companies that manufacture the generics versions. We are looking for Taxotere or the generic version of Docetaxel manufactured through Sanofi-Winthrope industries. The manufacturer may also be identified as Winthrop US.

Does Taxotere Warnings On Label?

Not until recently. The label was revised to include permanent Alopecia on 12/11/2015. However, the FDA didn’t update its safety information page to include permanent alopecia until 1/13/2016.

Who Can File A Taxotere Lawsuit?

Women who had treatment after 1/2005
Women with a diagnosis of stage 1,2 or 3 breast cancer that has not metastasized.
Cancer should be in remission.
Women that have been treated with Taxotere and Docetaxel.
Women who have suffered permanent hair loss as temporary hair loss is a known side effect.
Our El Paso, Texas Taxotere lawsuit attorneys are currently investigating Taxotere permanent baldness claims for women who have been diagnosed with permanent hair loss made by a dermatologist. If no diagnosis has been made, but hair loss has persisted for more than 6 months after stopping chemotherapy with Taxotere, the alopecia (hair loss) is considered permanent. Hair loss doesn’t have to mean totally bald. It can be patchy i.e. Ben Franklin, light fuzz, peach fuzz, etc.

Liability In Taxotere Lawsuits

There can actually be multiple liable parties in a Taxotere lawsuit. First and foremost the drug company or drug manufacturer Sanofi-Aventis, Sanofi-Winthorp or Winthorp US. They are the ones who hid the possible side effects from the public for years despite these side effects having been reported in Europe before the drug was released in the United States. This is a giant global organization who is unwilling to offer you any compensation without the help of a skilled mass tort attorney. There is literally no way you can file a claim yourself without one of our expert Taxotere lawsuit lawyers working diligently on your behalf.

In some states you can also file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the physician, oncologist, surgery center or hospital that administered the Taxotere. As your trusted medical professional they should have thoroughly explained your options to you and given you the option of choosing between Taxotere and other equally as effective drugs. They may try to claim ignorance regarding the toxicity associated with Taxotere but that is no excuse. If they are smart enough to get through medical school they are smart enough to read the warning label on the Taxotere box!

Benefits In A Taxotere Alopecia Claim

Benefits such as medical benefits and monetary compensation in a Taxotere injury claim differ from accident and injury cases such as car accidents and dog bite cases. For the most part there are no medical benefits awarded in a Taxotere case. An overwhelming majority, if not all of, the financial compensation in Taxotere, Docefrez and Docetaxel injury lawsuits comes in the form of pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and scarring and disfigurement benefits. Occasionally benefits for psychotherapy of grief counseling will be awarded in Taxotere injury cases but they are rare. The primary reason is that there is not a lot of medical care that goes into having alopecia. The hair either grows back of it does not. If it does not you may see a cancer victim every time you look in the mirror for the rest of your life. The havoc that can wreak on your psyche, emotions, relationships and life as a whole is almost immeasurable.

They will thoroughly analyze your claim, determine the full value dollar value of your claim which includes the current dollar amount as well as the future dollar amount. From there they will make any and all liable parties accountable legally and financially for your injuries, pain and suffering.

How Will My Taxotere Lawsuit Resolve?

This is a very common concern with all accident, injury and mass tort claim victims. Having endured whatever accident, injury or illness that led to your lawsuit in the first place, in this case breast cancer, is treacherous enough. Many times the other half of the battle is getting through the legal aspect of it whether that is an auto accident lawsuit, a personal injury lawsuit or a mass tort lawsuit.

As Taxotere litigation is relatively new none of the pending cases have settled or gone to trial as of yet. The drug companies that are being sued will not settle any cases without a few going to trial first which can take a couple of years. This allows them to gauge how vulnerable they will be on a case by case basis and from there they can decide what to negotiate in terms of settlements. The Indianapolis, Indiana Taxotere lawsuit attorneys we work with will do whatever is necessary to get you the maximum amount of benefits and monetary compensation. If that involves negotiating a very favorable settlement that is fine. If they need to take your case to trial that is fine too as they are skilled and experienced trial attorneys who only handle serious injury and mass tort claims throughout the entire United States.
