To better understand your legal options, you are entitled to a free, no-obligation Taxotere lawsuit case review with one of our experienced lawyers. Some of the factors our Taxotere attorneys will consider in reviewing your case include:

Taxotere Exposure

Whether Taxotere was prescribed for breast cancer treatment or to combat another condition, anyone who underwent Taxotere chemotherapy may qualify to file a Taxotere lawsuit. The duration and dosage of treatment may be relevant pieces of information as a case progresses. However, any exposure to Taxotere could result in permanent hair loss. If you are not sure which drugs were used in your cancer treatment or the treatment of a loved one, contact the prescribing physician. Taxotere is one of the only drugs known to result in permanent hair loss.

Taxotere Hair Loss

The term "permanent hair loss" is frequently used in reference to Taxotere, but the truth is that patients have a wide range of Taxotere hair loss experiences. Hair loss is a well-known and widely anticipated side effect of chemotherapy. However, patients are led to believe that hair loss will be temporary, and that their normal hair growth patterns will return following treatment. Taxotere is different; exposure to the drug can result in long-term or even lifelong changes to hair growth. For example, some patients exposed to Taxotere report a complete absence of hair growth, while others report patchy or clumpy hair growth for years following Taxotere chemotherapy. Permanent hair loss is defined as changes to one's typical hair growth patterns during the decade following treatment. No matter the degree of hair loss, patients may qualify to file Taxotere hair loss lawsuits if their normal hair patterns did not return following treatment.

In 2008, a scientific paper was published on the topic of hair loss from cancer treatment. The authors, Lemieux et al, reviewed 38 articles on hair loss during breast cancer treatment, concluding that hair loss is frequently listed among the most distressing side effects patients face: "Hair loss consistently ranked among the most troublesome side effects, was described as distressing, and may affect body image." Patients describe permanent hair loss as particularly distressing because it makes them feel like a lifelong cancer patient, long after treatment may have concluded.

Had patients been warned of the possibility for Taxotere hair loss to be permanent, they would have had the opportunity to make an informed decision about whether to use Taxotere or an alternate treatment. Instead, thousands upon thousands of patients were given Taxotere treatment with no knowledge of the danger of permanent Taxotere hair loss.
