Pradaxa is a prescription-only blood thinner that is prescribed by doctors when a patient has a problem with his or her heart rhythm, medically referred to as atrial fibrillation. Pradaxa has been known to cause serious gastrointestinal bleeding, bleeding in the head, bleeding causing strokes and other life-threatening bleeding.
If you have been prescribed Pradaxa and have suffered serious bleeding, it is important to talk with a lawyer about your rights. At Sommerman & Quesada, L.L.P., our firm works directly with clients throughout Texas and New Mexico to investigate and pursue defective drug litigation. Based in Dallas, our law firm has more than 85 years of combined legal experience representing injured clients in several thousand personal injury cases.
Experienced Defective Drug Representation
While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Pradaxa for use in patients who have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, studies have shown that those patients have an increased risk of serious bleeding and death. It is important to talk with your physician about what medicine is best for you and what potential side effects are involved.
Patients who have already been prescribed Pradaxa and have suffered an injury as a result have the right to consult with an attorney regarding this defective medication and the options for recovery. Do not discontinue taking any medication without consulting your physician.
