What’s the Problem?
August 23, 2016 – According to the complaint, Plaintiff Danah Anderson was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and prescribed Taxotere for chemotherapy. Anderson claims she developed permanent alopecia as a direct result of her use of the drug, and holds Sanofi S.A., Aventis Pharma S.A., and Sanofi-Aventis U.S. LLC responsible because they allegedly had knowledge of the side effects of Taxotere but failed to adequately warn the public and medical communities about these risks.
The complaint was filed August 12 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California under case number 2:16-cv-06046. Plaintiff alleges that Sanofi failed to adequately warn of the potential risk of permanent hair loss with Taxotere.
The lawsuit cites alleged breach of implied warranty, failure to warn, fraud, negligence and products liability. Anderson is seeking a jury trial and special damages, treble damages, expert witness fees, all legal fees and interest, and any other relief as this court deems just.
