Representation for Taxotere  (Docetaxel) Injury Claims

Taxotere – or docetaxel as its medicinal name – is injected to treat numerous types of cancer by attempting to stunt cancer cell growth at its source. While Taxotere and other antineoplastic medicines have proven useful for some patients, many of these types of prescription drugs have also been found to be highly dangerous for certain individuals.

Side effects can be varied and severe if the drug does not target just cancer cells but also inhibits the healthy growth of other cells. Permanent alopecia (permanent hair loss) is a primary side effect which includes loss of hair from the scalp, eyebrows, and face, while there are many other side effects that may come from using this drug.

Common side effects experienced by Taxotere users include:

  • Permanent alopecia (permanent hair loss)
  • Spells of nausea and vomiting
  • Digestion problems, including constipation or diarrhea
  • Injection site pain or itching
  • Sores in mouth and throat or on lips

Serious, potentially-life threatening side effects to Taxotere include:

  • Skin irritation throughout your body
  • Vision problems, including blindness
  • Full body aches and other cold or fever symptoms
  • Unusual pain in extremities
  • Swelling, bloating, and rapid weight gain
  • Chronic exhaustion
  • Unexplainable bleeding or bruising
  • Blood and platelet imbalance

Additionally, studies show that Taxotere has not been found to be any more effective than any other chemotherapy drug in the same class. If you are taking a Taxotere prescription and have experienced any of these aforementioned side effects, you should speak to your trusted physician as soon as you can. It is not recommended that you stop using a prescription medication without first talking to your doctor. Please do not do anything that jeopardizes your health.

After you have sought medical attention or another appointment from your doctor, you should call (855) 880-8163 to connect with Kalfus & Nachman PC and our Virginia personal injury lawyers. If your injuries and health conditions can be linked to Taxotere, you may be able eligible to seek compensation that helps pay for your medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Pursuing Compensation for Harm Caused by Taxotere

Whenever a drug is introduced to the market, it must first be thoroughly researched, calibrated, and submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Since the FDA rarely conducts its own tests on prescription drugs, the pharmaceutical companies that make medicines must test their own products. This lack of agency oversight can lead to some serious complications, patient health issues, or even wrongful deaths if a dangerous drug is allowed to be sold medical groups, kept on pharmacy shelves, and prescribed to patients.

When a patient is harmed by Taxotere use, its manufacturer might be held accountable for putting an unsafe drug on the market. It might also be possible that a doctor’s medical malpractice is the source of the issue if the prescribing physician ignored usual warning signs that indicate Taxotere is not safe for a patient to use. Most patients can understandably feel overwhelmed when trying to pinpoint liability and seek compensation. This is where our legal team steps in and can take over.
