We want to be respectful of the pain that so many families have gone through due to these unexpected complications. The most important thing anyone can offer in these circumstances is peace of mind.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
International personal injury firm Doyle Raizner has offered its services to anyone affected by the drug Pradaxa, a blood-thinning prescription drug meant to prevent strokes. The drug, which tops the Food and Drug Administration's list of serious and fatal complications for 2011 based on Adverse Events Report for March 2011, has been the focus of several dozen lawsuits in recent months. They currently represent Pradaxa patients nationwide.
Motions have been filed to consolidate these cases into an MDL, or multi-district litigation. The firm wants to lend support to this nationwide MDL. Joining an MDL can have advantages and disadvantages for a plaintiff, according to the Doyle Raizner, and the firm wants to help people make the best decision about how and whether to proceed with a case if they've been affected by Pradaxa.
“Our attorneys have extensive experience with MDLs and mass torts,” said founding partner Michael Doyle. “It's a complicated process and it can be intimidating to know where to even get started. But if you were harmed by a drug that was supposed to help save your life, you have a right to a fair settlement.”
Pradaxa's alleged serious side effects range from hemorrhaging, acute renal failure, and even strokes. The most common problem with the drug, is that most blood thinners have a reversal agent so that doctors can prevent hemorrhage during an emergency such as a head wound, but no reversal agent exists for Pradaxa as reported by the FDA. For more information about the side effects and warnings for this drug, read the FDA report on this drug. Those who take the drug are often elderly and therefore at high risk of hitting their heads due to falls or accidents.
“We want to be respectful of the pain that so many families have gone through due to these unexpected complications,” said Doyle. “The most important thing anyone can offer in these circumstances is peace of mind.”
