Pradaxa is a 2010 approved drug currently given as a blood clot and stroke prevention measure in treating atrial fibrillation. Currently, over 2 million Americans suffer from atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat). This makes them prone to blood clots which may travel to the brain causing stroke or brain trauma.

If you or someone you love has ever suffered from internal bleeding, heart attack, or another serious injury after taking Pradaxa, you know how important safe and adequately approved medical care is. At Wapner Newman, our medical malpractice and personal injury lawyers have the resources, expertise, and experience to pursue fair and just compensation. We are relentless about seeking justice for you.

FDA Pradaxa Recall

For all types of blood thinners, serious bleeding is a known complication. Usually, there is a warning on the drug’s labels. With Pradaxa, the reported bleeding events are still being investigated by the FDA. The FDA is also investigating whether or not consumers need to be warned about any other Pradaxa dangers.

The FDA recall has not been finalized, so Pradaxa is still available and on the market. Professional medical practitioners fear that there may be many more deaths or injuries caused.

Medical Risks

Some of the negative effects of Pradaxa include:

  • intestinal bleeding
  • bleeding in the kidneys
  • heart attacks
  • internal brain bleeding

The manufacturer of Pradaxa faces direct legal liability due to the fact that they were not forthcoming with patients about the lack of reversal agent availability.  Again, similar drugs like Warfarin and Coumadin were required to have a reversal agent before being released to the public.

Legal Steps to Take When Filing a Pradaxa Lawsuit
