Our attorneys may file a Pradaxa lawsuit on behalf of people nationwide who have developed life-threatening or fatal injuries and who have been treated with Pradaxa. Cases might involve serious bleeding events and heart attacks. Pradaxa related deaths have been confirmed by Boehringer Ingelheim, the manufacturer of Pradaxa (its generic name is dabigatran etexilate).
Fatal bleeding and hemorrhaging after treatment with dabigatran etexilate might be the basis of a Pradaxa lawsuit. As an anticoagulant drug, Pradaxa's purpose is to reduce the incidence of blood clots that could cause a stroke. However, unlike its predecessor warfarin, there is no way to stop or reverse the anticoagulant effects of Pradaxa in the event of hemorrhaging or its other internal bleeding side effects.
Legal Claims for Pradaxa Injuries
Pradaxa related deaths and injuries (e.g., heart attacks) can had devastating effects on patients and their families. Legal claims for Pradaxa injuries seek to secure compensation that can address the financial losses incurred by Pradaxa victims, including:
- loss of the ability to work
- lost income
- bills for medical care, including medication and nursing care
- rehabilitation costs
- help at home because of the patient's disabling injuries
- emotional pain and suffering
Find Out If You Qualify for a Pradaxa Lawsuit
If you're being treated with Pradaxa, you might want to discuss the medical issues with your physician or surgeon. You should be aware of the possible side effects and their symptoms and should tell your doctor right away if you show any signs of internal bleeding such as throwing up blood (looks like coffee grounds), blood in the urine or stool, unexplained weakness and pain, or nosebleeds.
You may qualify for a Pradaxa lawsuit if you experience serious bleeding, hemorrhaging and/or other internal bleeding side effects. Another possible side effect is heart attack.
If someone in your family died from internal bleeding, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for your pain, suffering and other loss. To find out if you qualify, please schedule a free review of your case by contacting our Pradaxa lawyers today.
