The California plaintiff’s complaint joins other Taxotere alopecia side-effects lawsuits pending litigation in Eastern District of Louisiana (MDL 2740). The Taxotere lawsuits are filed on behalf of women who allege the Taxotere chemotherapy drug prescribed to treat breast cancer causes alopecia or permanent hair loss which results in severe and debilitating emotional distress, loss of work, economic damages, and physical and mental pain and suffering.

The attorneys at Southern Med Law have spoken with women and are investigating Taxotere alopecia side-effects after a growing number of women are suffering permanent hair loss while battling breast cancer.

“Women may be entitled to potential compensation for the emotional and mental anguish over the permanent disfigurement which is believed to be the result of being treated with Taxotere for breast cancer,” says Dr. François Blaudeau, founder of Southern Med Law.

The Taxotere alopecia side-effect lawsuit states that the woman was prescribed the chemotherapy drug in October 2012 by her doctor for treating breast cancer. As a result of taking Taxotere, the woman experienced permanent, disfiguring alopecia. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff has suffered and incurred damages, including psychological counseling and therapy expenses, past and future loss of earnings, and past, present and future loss and impairment of the quality and enjoyment of life.

  • Fatigue
  • Fluid retention
  • Fever
  • Gastrointestinal complications
  • Low blood cell count
  • Muscle pain
  • Sensory and motor peripheral neuropathy (numbness and tingling of the hands and feet, with loss of reflexes)
  • Skin and nail toxicity


Taxotere hair loss lawsuit filings all allege the chemotherapy drug causes permanent hair loss. They further state Taxotere’s developer, Sanofi-Aventis and its U.S. subsidiaries were aware of the potential Chemotherapy drug side effects but failed to adequately warn patients that they could permanently lose their hair. The Taxotere lawsuts also contend that Sanonfi-Aventis marketed Taxotere as more effective than other chemotherapy drugs when other drugs were equally effective without the associated permanent hair loss.
