Houston, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
Attorney Brian White & Associates, P.C., a law firm handling defective drug cases across the United States is currently evaluating cases involving people who have allegedly been harmed by the drug Pradaxa, also known as dabigatran etexilate mesylate. Approved by the FDA in 2010, Pradaxa is a blood thinner used to aid in the prevention of strokes and blood clots in patients who suffered with non-valvular arterial fibrillation. As with any blood thinner, one of the more serious side effects of Pradaxa is excessive internal bleeding. According to the manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim, there have been 260 known deaths linked to Pradaxa.
In December 2011 the FDA announced it was investigating claims of bleeding in patients taking Pradaxa that have been reported to their Adverse Events Reporting System (AERS) to determine whether serious side effects are happening at a higher rate than would be expected. Some of the serious side effects linked to Pradaxa include excessive bleeding and an increased risk of heart attack.
“We treat every dangerous drug case as if it was a member of my own family who has been harmed. It is our goal to not only obtain the best possible financial outcome for our clients, but to provide whatever assistance that we can.” White said. “We take great pride in our contribution to not only our clients, but also to the safety of consumers across the Country.”
Attorney Brian White has been representing those harmed by negligent people or companies for more than 10 years. The firm is offering a free, no-obligation Pradaxa case evaluation to injury victims or the families of persons whom have been harmed as a result of taking Pradaxa. The firm handles all Pradaxa lawsuits on a contingency fee basis. In addition to Pradaxa, the law firm is also currently evaluating Actos bladder cancer lawsuits, another dangerous drug that can lead to bladder cancer.
