Pradaxa and Internal Bleeding

Use of Pradaxa was first associated with uncontrolled bleeding while being used in elderly patients in New Zealand. This news was in September, 2011, at which time it was further discovered that the bleeding was uncontrollable. With other drugs, such as warfarin, bleeding was easy to stem by using vitamin K. However, this is not so with Pradaxa, and this defect could result in life-threatening consequences. Similar reports occurred in Japan, and the Cleveland Clinic also confirmed these problems in early 2012.

Lawsuits & financial recovery

Medical treatment for these side effects can be expensive. The people responsible for releasing this drug without properly warning of the consequences should be held accountable for your pain and suffering and financial burden. Our New York drug liability attorneys aggressively litigate cases to ensure our clients receive all the compensation they are owed.
