Pradaxa is an anticoagulant which is used to help prevent strokes as well as serious blood clots in people that have atrial fibrillation. (A condition where the heart beats irregularly and increases the chance of blood clots forming in the body.)
Pradaxa was approved by the EMA (European Medicines Agency) on March 18, 2008 and by the FDA on October 19, 2010. It was marketed by German pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim as a safer more effective alternative to other anticoagulant drugs like Wayfarin.
However, there are reports that now show the drug may have significant health risks associated with it.
If you or a loved one suffered an injury or death after taking Pradaxa, it is important to learn about the current health warnings and your legal right to recover from a Lakewood Pradaxa Attorney.
On December 7, 2011 The FDA announced that they were evaluating reports of serious and or fatal bleeding events in patients who were prescribed Pradaxa.
There have been several families who have suffered an injury or even lost a loved one after they took Pradaxa and they have already filed lawsuits. A Lakewood Pradaxa attorney can explain the legal options and whether your case may qualify.

There are reports that have shown Pradaxa may cause serious or even fatal injuries right after patients began taking it.
In a March 6, 2012 report in the Journal of Neurosurgery, there was an entry which detailed the death of an 83 year old atrial fibrillation patient who suffered a low-level fall. Doctors were unable to stop the bleeding because there is no reversal agent for Pradaxa as there is for other anticoagulant drugs like Wayfarin or Coumadin.
A Lakewood Pradaxa attorney can explain how the FDA is now trying to find out if the maker of the drug knew of these dangers, but negligently failed to warn patients.
