Since the FDA approved Pradaxa on October 19, 2010 this drug has been prescribed to hundreds of thousands of patients to prevent blood clots and strokes. However, recent reports have brought to light that this drug may have catastrophic health risks associated with it.
If you or a loved one have suffered a serious injury or death from taking Pradaxa it is very important that you speak to a qualified Pradaxa attorney to discuss your legal rights.
After receiving several hundred reports of Pradaxa causing serious injury or death, the FDA announced on December 7, 2011 that it would open an investigation into the safety of the drug. Unfortunately, most of the complications of taking Pradaxa were related to massive internal bleeding or strokes.
The German pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim, who manufactures and markets Pradaxa, has now publicly admitted that they had received over 260 reports of patient death from the drug since it was released in Europe in 2008.
Attorneys have already assisted patients and their families who have been affected by an injury or death from taking Pradaxa. A Pradaxa Attorney will be able to advise you about the legal process as well as explain to you what the case may be worth.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or death after taking Pradaxa, It is very important that you speak to a qualified Pradaxa attorney about the legal options available to you. There may be substantial financial compensation that you are entitled to, however, time is limited.
Within just weeks of Pradaxa’s approval, the FDA's MedWatch had linked the drug to dangerous side effects such as:
Most anticoagulants do carry a risk of internal bleeding, but they can usually be treated with reversal agents like vitamin K by doctors in emergency situations.
There have been numerous reported episodes where patients that were prescribed Pradaxa had bled to death because there is no reversal agent to stop the bleeding like there is for other anticoagulants.
A Pradaxa attorney can explain how the drug manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim might have known of these impending health risks but continued to market Pradaxa anyway.
