New York, NY (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
Potential Pradaxa lawsuits are actively being evaluated by the Pradaxa side effects lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP. Pradaxa is an anti-coagulant drug manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals Inc., used to reduce the risk of stroke and embolism. However, it has been linked to potentially fatal side effects such as causing uncontrolled, excessive bleeding in patients with no way to reverse the process.
Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing clients who have been injured by dangerous drugs and defective medical devices, is currently offering free and confidential Pradaxa case reviews to individuals who suffered Pradaxa side effects. The Pradaxa lawsuits allege that the manufacturer of the drug failed to adequately warn patients about Pradaxa excessive bleeding and the lack of an antidote.
FDA Receives Growing Reports Of Fatal Pradaxa Side Effects
Pradaxa was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) in 2010. The drug was introduced as an alternative to Coumadin, or warfarin, an anti-coagulant that required more monitoring to use. However, serious bleeding caused by warfarin can be stopped by doses of Vitamin K, while Pradaxa lacks such a solution to stop its blood-thinning effects, which may lead to serious patient injuries and death.
According to a USA Today report, the FDA has received 3,781 adverse event reports of Pradaxa side effects and 542 Pradaxa deaths since its approval. The number of Pradaxa adverse repots and deaths are greater than that of all other monitored drugs. The FDA is currently conducting safety reviews of the drug, which have been prescribed to over a million patients in the United States. Health regulators in Australia, Japan and Europe have also issued Pradaxa side effects advisories.
Those who took Pradaxa and suffered from excessive bleeding or other severe side effects may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
