There are patients who are still being harmed by Pradaxa even though the U.S. FDA has issued safety communications about the potential dangers of using this drug.
U.S. (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
The national law offices of Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys announce they are currently evaluating Pradaxa class action claims. Multi-District Lawsuits have been already been filed (MDL No. 2385, United States District Court, Southern District of Illinois). These lawsuits have linked people who were hospitalized due to serious bleeding or blood loss to Pradaxa use. Those who believe they or a loved one’s personal health and quality of life has suffered due to Pradaxa may be eligible for money damages and are encouraged to call 1(800) GET-GLEN for a free case evaluation.
“Even though the FDA has notified health care professionals and the general public about the potential dangers of using Pradaxa, there are patients who are still being harmed by this drug,” said Personal Injury Attorney Glen Lerner. “That is why our class action attorneys are offering to evaluate claims from possible users who believe they or a loved one may have suffered serious health complications after taking this blood thinning drug.”
According to an U.S. FDA safety announcement released on 12-19-2012, patients with mechanical prosthetic heart valves who used Pradaxa were more likely to experience blood clots forming on their mechanical heart valves, heart attacks and strokes, than users of other anticoagulants (blood thinners). The FDA also released a Drug Safety Communication on 11-02-2012 stating that Pradaxa can cause bleeding that could potentially lead to serious or even fatal outcomes in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
