According to studies published by the Journal of American Medicine and the New England Journal of Medicine, prolonged or acute usage of proton-pump inhibitor drugs such as Nexium can cause a decrease in bone density. This brittleness of the bones, or osteoporosis, causes bones to be broken or fractured more easily and puts users of this drug at a great health risk. As bone decalcification wasn’t listed in the list of warnings and side effects by its creator AstraZeneca, victims of Nexium wrist fractures may be entitled to financial compensation.


Our law office is currently accepting cases of wrist fractures thought to be caused by the bone degenerating side effects of Nexium. While initially prescribed as a medication to control acid reflux, recent studies show a link between Nexium and bone fractures.


Painful Fractures


The human wrist contains a total of eight bones, all vital to the proper function of the hand. Fractures, or breaks, of any of these delicate bones in the wrist can be incredibly painful and debilitating. Depending on the nature of the break, recovery times for these injuries can be as long as twelve months. In cases of severe wrist fractures, the victim will likely experience some degree of pain or disability for the remainder of their life. It is due to this that if you or someone close to you was taking Nexium, and suffered a wrist fracture, that you contact our law office right away. A successful products liability claim for a Nexium wrist fracture can help you pay for:


• Medical Bills

• Physical Therapy

• Loss of Income

• Physical Disability

• Pain and Suffering


The human skeletal system is the foundation that our anatomy is built upon that allows us to be mobile, if compromised via a fracture this mobility and freedom can be taken away in an instant.
