Pradaxa Lawyers Investigating Severe Bleeding Claims

(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 27, 2012 ) Tampa, Florida – The Pradaxa lawyers at Morgan and Morgan are investigating potential legal claims on behalf of Pradaxa users who suffered severe bleeding episodes while taking the blood thinning medication. These episodes, which include brain hemorrhages and gastrointestinal bleeds, may have occurred following a minor trauma, such as a fall that resulted in a seemingly mild head injury. If you or a loved one suffered from a bleeding event while taking Pradaxa, you may have legal recourse in light of allegations that the manufacturer of Pradaxa failed to properly warn patients and doctors about the risk of life-threatening bleeding. To learn more about your eligibility for a Pradaxa lawsuit, visit Morgan and Morgan’s website at http://www.forthepeople.com/pradaxa-bleeding-lawsuits--11-4104.html and complete the free case review form.

In December 2011, the FDA announced that it would be looking into post-marketing reports of serious bleeds in Pradaxa users. While all anticoagulant therapies pose a risk of serious and fatal bleeding, the agency is working to determine whether reports of Pradaxa bleeding events are occurring more often than should be expected. According to the FDA, a large clinical trial comparing Pradaxa and older blood thinner warfarin revealed major bleeding events which occurred at similar rates. It has been reported, however, that while the effects of warfarin can be reversed with a dose of Vitamin K, no such antidote exists for Pradaxa.

A handful of Pradaxa lawsuits, one of which alleges that a woman suffered a fatal gastrointestinal bleed due to her use of the blood thinner, have already been filed against the drug’s manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim. As these lawsuits progress, the Pradaxa lawyers at Morgan and Morgan are extending a free consultation to patients who suffered a severe bleed on Pradaxa, as well as loved ones acting on their behalf.
