San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 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 Lawsuits.
According to court documents, on February 19th, 2013 an Alabama resident filed a lawsuit in the Illinois Southern District Court (case no. 3:2013cv50075) alleging she suffered severe internal bleeding from Pradaxa. Pradaxa, manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, is mainly used as a blood thinner for patients who are at risk for stroke or atrial fibrillation. In the lawsuit plaintiff claims she began taking Pradaxa in December 2010 and a few days later she was admitted to hospital for serious side effects, including acute blood loss anemia and gingival bleeding.
This lawsuit has joined the Pradaxa Multi-District Litigation in the United States’ District Court for the Southern District of Illinois (MDL 2385), assigned to Judge David R. Herndon.
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 for 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 December 19th, 2012 the FDA issued safety communication informing that the Agency required a contraindication (a warning against use) of Pradaxa in patients with mechanical heart valves. According to the announcement, a clinical trial in Europe was terminated early because thromboembolic events and major bleeding were significantly more frequent in the Pradaxa treatment arm than in the warfarin treatment arm.
