ALERT: Pradaxa Injuries Linked to More Than 500 Deaths
After receiving 542 reports of death among Pradaxa users in 2011, the FDA named Pradaxa one of the two most dangerous drugs on the market. Pradaxa complications include heart attack and uncontrollable bleeding. Unstoppable bleeding is particularly deadly when a Pradaxa patient is:
- Suffering from a medical condition such as an ulcer
- Prevented from receiving life-saving surgery due to bleeding risks
- A victim of bodily trauma, such as that resulting from a car accident
- Experiencing spontaneous brain, kidney or gastrointestinal bleeding
Who is Responsible for Your Injury?
Boehringer should have warned patients, doctors and the FDA of the extreme bleeding risks associated with Pradaxa. When you began a Pradaxa treatment program, you should have been made aware of the risks you faced, and you were not. For the injuries you have suffered as a result of this negligence, Boehringer owes you compensation.
