Focused on Successful Results for Almost 40 Years

Most often, patients taking blood-thinning drugs like Coumadin, Heparin and Lovenox know that the risk of excessive blood loss is present and take precautions. Unfortunately, medical care providers don't always match patients' diligence and injuries and wrongful death can occur.

Blood loss and clots resulting from blood-thinning drugs like Coumadin, Heparin and Lovenox usually occur in one of three ways:

  • Health care professionals stop monitoring a patient's international normalized ratio (INR) prematurely, resulting in too-thin blood, excessive bleeding, cardiac arrhythmia or a blood clot.
  • Medical care professionals fail to adjust drug intake and INR levels prior to surgery, resulting in excessive bleeding during an operation.
  • The patient suffers trauma (like car accident injuries) and experiences excessive and harmful loss of blood due to too-thin blood. Or, a physician fails to adjust medication levels following an injury.

If you were put on a blood-thinning medication and subsequently experienced a serious blood loss or blood clot injury, it is possible that medical negligence lead to your injuries. For a no-charge consultation regarding a potential claim, contact our firm.
