Esomeprazole, marketed by AstraZeneca as acid reflux drug Nexium, has garnered recent national attention for a myriad of possible side effects that it may cause. Among these new found side effects includes an alledged degeneration of the bones in the spine — which can lead to spine fractures. Proton-pump inhibitor drugs such a Nexium are now believed to reduce the body’s ability to absorb calcium, thus leading to osteoporosis and broken bones. Studies show that women over the age of forty are especially vulnerable to the bone decalcification effects of Nexium.


Our national law office is currently accepting cases for review of spinal fractures thought to be caused by the bone destructive side effects of Nexium. Studies published by the Journal of American Medicine show an almost undeniable link between the long-term use of Nexium and osteoporosis. As the creators of Nexium (AstraZeneca) didn’t include a warning about the potential for bone loss on the label for this drug, they are being sought after for compensation via a number of products liability claims. Contact our law office today to discuss your case if you have experienced a spinal fracture while taking Nexium.


Spine Fractures


While all fractures can be incredibly painful and debilitating, fractures of the spine pose a unique health threat to the victims who suffer them. As the spinal cord is housed within the spine, a break or fracture of the vertebrae has the potential to cause permanent paralysis. Since acid reflux drug Nexium is now linked to bone degeneration in users of the medication for over a year or in high doses, these people are at a higher risk for these dangerous fractures.


The effects of a spine fracture can be felt for years after the initial injury takes place; victims of these painful injuries will need a compensation figure that will continue to provide for them. If a person experiences a degree of paralysis as the result of a spine fracture, then their life can change in an instant. Contact national Nexium spine fracture attorney Brian White today to evaluate your case. A successful claim of products liability may be the only way to recovery after one of these tragic injuries.
