Pradaxa Attorneys Want to Review GI Bleed, Brain Hemorrhage Claims

Tampa 3/22/2012 11:42 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

The Pradaxa attorneys at Morgan and Morgan would like to hear from users of Pradaxa, or loved ones acting on their behalf, who suffered a severe bleeding event while taking the blood thinning medication. Potentially, financial compensation may be available for Pradaxa users who suffered gastrointestinal bleeds, brain hemorrhaging, kidney bleeds or other forms of internal bleeding. A handful of lawsuits have already been filed on behalf of users who were allegedly harmed by the drug, and the Pradaxa attorneys at our firm are looking to determine if others have legal recourse to seek monetary damages. To find out if you can make a claim for medical bills and other losses, visit http://www.forthepeople.com/pradaxa-bleeding-lawsuits--11-4104.html for a free review of your bleeding injury claim. The Pradaxa attorneys at Morgan and Morgan are providing this online consultation at no cost and with no obligation.   

Pradaxa was approved in 2010 and aimed to replace decades-old blood thinner Coumadin. Unlike Coumadin, the blood thinning effects of which can be reversed with Vitamin K, Pradaxa has no antidote. Therefore, if a user is seriously injured in a car accident or suffers a cerebral hemorrhage, it may be difficult to stop the bleeding. One Pradaxa lawsuit has reportedly alleged that Boehringer Ingelheim created a dangerous drug which is no safer than older blood thinners and lacks an antidote to reverse its anticlotting effects. In this case, it is alleged that a gastrointestinal bleed from Pradaxa caused the death of a Tennessee woman.   

In Dec. 2011, the FDA announced that it would be evaluating post-marketing reports of serious bleeding events in Pradaxa users and advised patients to seek immediate medical care should they begin vomiting or coughing up blood, experiencing unusual nose bleeds or gum bleeding or develop any other signs of bleeding. As the FDA looks into the reports of Pradaxa bleeding, our Pradaxa attorneys would like to hear from patients who took the drug, as well as loved ones acting on their behalf, to determine if they can pursue compensation following a cerebral hemorrhage, GI bleed or other bleeding event.
