The lawsuit accuses the manufacturers of hiding the "unreasonably dangerous risks" of femur fractures associated with the drug and failing to properly monitor the medication after marketing it.
The plaintiff is seeking an award for actual, treble and punitive damages, as well as court costs and interest, the news source said.
In addition to femur fractures, the use of Fosamax has been linked to poor healing of the jaw and aching pain in the groin, thighs or hips, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information.
