Pradaxa Bleeding Death Victims: Our New York Injury Attorneys Can Help

Personal Injury AttorneyPradaxa, a blood thinner used to reduce the risk of strokes and blood clots in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, may cause excessive bleeding deaths. The FDA recently announced a discovered link between Pradaxa and bleeding deaths. When compared to other blood thinning medications, such as warfarin, Pradaxa causes more people to suffer bleeding events.

If you took this medication and faced side effects or even lost a loved one as a result of this medication’s use, contact our personal injury lawyers to learn how to get compensation for your losses.

Pradaxa Risk Factors to Talk to Your New York Personal Injury Attorney About

Clinical studies, including those occurring through the Cleveland Clinic, indicate that patients taking Pradaxa, also known by its chemical name dabigatran, are at an increased risk of the following:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Higher risk of heart attack
  • Higher risk of acute coronary syndrome
  • Higher risk of death

In one study, the use of dabigatran in patients undergoing a total hip or knee replacement found a higher mortality rate and more bleeding in patients. This was a higher number of incidents then when patients used low molecular weight heparin.

Symptoms of Serious Bleeding Include:

  • Unexpected bleeding
  • Bleeding that lasts a long time
  • Red or black stools
  • Pink or brown colored urine
  • Unusual and unexplained bruising
  • Vomiting blood
  • Coughing up blood
  • Headaches, dizziness or overall weakness
  • Unexpected swelling, joint pain

Do you suffer from any of these symptoms? Contact a New York personal injury lawyer to find out if you have a case. Do not put off getting more information about your potential case.

Symptoms of a Heart Attack Include:

  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Pain in the left upper arm, the abdomen and/or the jaw
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sudden and heavy sweating
  • Lightheadedness, fainting
  • Unusually fatigue
  • Nausea and/or vomiting

Pradaxa Facts:

  • Pradaxa, chemically known as dabigatran, remains on the market. Doctors began using it in October of 2010.
  • The FDA has approved and continues to allow it to be in use for reducing the risk of a stroke or blood clots. It works as a direct thrombin inhibitor.
  • The FDA and the European Medicine Agency continue to study the effects of this drug to determine if the risk factors are too high to allow the medications to remain in use.

What You Should Do:

Have you experienced death or injury as the result of Pradaxa? Bleeding deaths or incidents when taking this medication should be reported. Our New York injury attorneys can help.

Cindy C.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
