San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion in view of the recent news on Pradaxa and potential Pradaxa Recall lawsuits.
A new study, published on March 1, 2013 in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, revealed that Pradaxa could increase the risk to certain types of viral infections in some patients. Pradaxa, manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, is mainly used as a blood thinner for patients who are at risk for stroke or atrial fibrillation. The initial research of the study was conducted on mice and revealed that Pradaxa use could increase the risk for myocarditis, a viral infection of the heart.
Court data updated on March 5, 2013, by the US Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation (MDL), indicate that there are 260 actions pending in the Pradaxa MDL (MDL 2385, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois). All the actions share common factual questions arising out of allegations that plaintiffs suffered severe bleeding or other injuries as a result of taking Pradaxa, according to the Transfer Order.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in case of alleged Pradaxa severe complications. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Pradaxa lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
On March 26 a lawsuit was filed in Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2013cv50156) by a woman alleging her mother suffered gastrointestinal bleeding from Pradaxa and died.
