Taxotere is a medication used during chemotherapy sessions to treat certain types of cancer, including stomach cancer, breast cancer, and some forms of head and neck cancer. The drug is administered intravenously through a vein. It is a member of the drug family known as taxanes.
Unfortunately, there have been reports of complications with Taxotere. Some female patients who were treated for breast cancer with Taxotere have experienced hair loss that is permanent. This condition is known as alopecia. This condition occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, causing them not to grow. Alopecia is usually temporary, however there is an indication that the hair loss occurring from Taxotere is permanent. Lawsuits have been filed and substantial compensation is expected.
At this time, it is unknown exactly how much Taxotere settlements will be. If you have suffered hair loss after receiving chemotherapy using Taxotere, you may be entitled to a settlement. It is important to contact our attorneys as soon as possible so we can determine what kind of lawsuit you will be eligible for. There are specific time deadlines for filing defective drug lawsuits in each state.
