According to the CDC’s breast cancer studies the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has a female breast cancer rate of 130. This means that each year 130 women per 100,000 women are diagnosed with, or die from, breast cancer, in Pennsylvania. This gives Pennsylvania the 12th highest breast cancer rate out of all 50 states and Washington D.C. This same ratio holds true for the city of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
There are several justified grounds for a lawsuit against the manufacturers of Taxotere, Docefrez and or Docetaxel. Each of these 3 chemotherapy drugs are the same and all can cause permanent alopecia. They are all sold by different drug companies hence the different names.
The grounds for a Taxotere permanent alopecia lawsuit are typically:
A Taxotere lawsuit differs from other types of personal injury claims such as auto accidents, workers comp claims or slip and fall cases. In these cases the liable parties insurance carrier will usually approach you with a quick and easy lump sum settlement. They hope you will accept their settlement and go away so the case can close for as little money as possible with no attorney involvement.
A Taxotere claim is a mass tort claim and is a totally different legal process. There will be no insurance adjuster from the drug company knocking on your door offering you a few dollars for having ruined your self esteem, your aesthetics and your life due to their incredibly toxic drug. The only way to get the benefits is by retaining an experienced mass tort attorney and having them file a lawsuit on your behalf.
