Victims need to talk to someone that can guide them through the process.
COLUMBIA, SC (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
November 1, 2012 – A central court has been established to handle Pradaxa claims-No. 2385, IN RE: Pradaxa Product Liability Litigation, Southern District of Illinois (PDF.) The lawyers at McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates P.A. are now investigating claims on behalf of possible victims who have suffered severe bleeding after taking the blood thinner Pradaxa. They have allocated substantial resources, including the launch of a new website dedicated to help guide individuals through the legal process.
Currently, the FDA has not issued a recall of Pradaxa. However, in 2011, a FDA Drug Safety Communication began to investigate reports of possible side effects of Pradaxa. According to a report by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices’ QuarterWatch (PDF) last month, it is estimated that prescription drug complaints to the FDA have risen 90% in the past 4 years, and two drugs, Pradaxa and Chantix, are responsible for 37% of that increase.
“Anyone affected after the use of Pradaxa should speak with a lawyer about their legal options as soon as possible,” said H. Patterson McWhirter, founding member of McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates, P.A. “Victims need to talk to someone that can guide them through the process.”
