alleging that her husband suffered from Pradaxa internal bleeding injuries and died
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 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.
On July 12, a woman filed a lawsuit in Missouri Eastern District Court (case no. 4:2013cv01339) alleging that her husband suffered from Pradaxa internal bleeding injuries and died. Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate), manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, is a new oral anticoagulant mainly used as a blood thinner for patients who are at risk for stroke or atrial fibrillation. In the lawsuit the plaintiff claims that her husband was prescribed Pradaxa for atrial fibrillation in 2011 and in 2012 he was hospitalized for excessive blood loss. He died in February 2013.
A new study, published on the July issue of Gastroenterology, revealed that new oral anticoagulants (incl. Pradaxa) increase the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding.
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.”
Another study, presented* on July 1, at the 2013 Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis meeting, revealed that Pradaxa is associated with an increased heart attack risk.
