We have previously discussed the question that many are asking right now: “Why did the FDA rush to approve Pradaxa?” With reports from the Journal for The American Medical Association warning that the FDA overlooked Pradaxa internal bleeding and its severe side effects, our Pradaxa injury lawyers are mystified why this drug ever was given to patients in the first place.
What’s even more disturbing is that Pradaxa is still available on the market - even after it’s been estimated that prescription drug complaints to the FDA have increased over the last four years by 90 percent. According to an October report issued by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices’ QuarterWatch, Pradaxa and Chantix make up 37 percent of this increase. And Pradaxa is responsible for 542 deaths and 3,781 cases of side effects that have been reported to the FDA.
Since federal Judge David Herndon announced that Pradaxa victims can proceed with their lawsuits, victims who have been injured by this dangerous drug or who have lost a spouse or a loved one from internal bleeding are urged to talk with an attorney to learn about their legal options.
