We are accepting Pradaxa cases for individuals who have suffered internal bleeding during Pradaxa usage.
Pradaxa, also known as dabigatran etexilate, is a blood thinning medication used to prevent strokes and blood clots in patients with abnormal heart rhythm or atrial fibrillation. It has become one of the top selling drugs in the U.S. due to its ability to effectively treat patients, however, recent reports are proving that Pradaxa can cause catastrophic bleeding, causing severe injury to those that take the prescribed medication.
Patients who have suffered injury or harm after taking Pradaxa may have the means to file a Pradaxa lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company or drug manufacturer that produces this blood thinner drug. In fact, Boehringer Ingelheim, the manufacturer of Pradaxa, was aware that taking the drug did leave a possible risk of patients seriously bleeding but failed to warn individuals of the defective and dangerous nature of the drug. Therefore Boehringer Ingelhem may be held liable for those who do suffer injury or suffered severe internal bleeding.
At the dangerous drug law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our Michigan Pradaxa lawyers represent patients who have suffered internal bleeding and harm after taking the prescribed medication. This drug has proven to be quite dangerous as far as its side effects, and those injured should contact an experienced attorney immediately to determine if their injury was a direct result of the mediation, and if they have means to file a blood thinner Pradaxa lawsuit.
Pradaxa Side Effects
As with every drug or medication, there are side effects that may result. Pradaxa is administered in a capsule form and is an anticoagulant that works by the clotting protein thrombin. The drug is used to prevent blood clots, however, Pradaxa has been associated with a number of patients suffering from severe internal bleeding. Easy bruising or minor bleeding, such as nosebleed or bleeding from cuts may occur from taking the medication. However, signs of serous bleeding include:
- Unusual pain/swelling/discomfort
- Unusual/easy bruising
- Prolonged bleeding from cuts or gums
- Persistent and frequent nosebleeds
- Unusually heavy and prolonged menstrual flow
- Coughing up blood
- Vomit that is bloody or looks like coffee grounds
