Pradaxa Injury Claims and Compensation

Pradaxa Injury Claims Attorneys

Pradaxa (dabigatran) can cause serious and even fatal injuries. If you have been injured by Pradaxa or if you have lost a loved one to this deadly medication, you may be entitled to compensation. You do not need to wait for a Pradaxa recall to pursue your claim. Our Pradaxa injury claims attorneys are ready to help you today.

Pradaxa was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October, 2010. In December, 2011, the FDA announced that it was conducting a safety review to determine if Pradaxa is more dangerous than it believed when it approved the drug.

The majority of defective drugs are not recalled, and a recall is not necessary for you to have a claim. You have the right to make an informed choice when you take a medication. When a drug maker fails to warn consumers and health care professionals of the dangerous side effects its product can cause, that product is considered defective based on failure to warn.

Compensation for Pradaxa Injury Claims

Pradaxa injuries can happen under a variety of circumstances. Pradaxa can cause spontaneous internal bleeding including gastrointestinal bleeding and bleeding in the brain. It can also cause bleeding to be excessive and uncontrollable when trauma is involved, even minor trauma. For instance, a routine and minor fall can be fatal for Pradaxa users.

Pradaxa bleeding requires emergency medical treatment. That treatment is more extensive than the treatment required by people who are taking other anticoagulant drugs and less likely to be successful.

Compensation for Pradaxa injury claims can include:

  • Past, current, and future medical expenses, including travel for medical care
  • Therapy and rehabilitation
  • Home health care
  • Custodial care
  • Long term care
  • End of life care
  • Special equipment and home modifications to accommodate disability
  • Past, current, and future lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Disability
  • Temporary or permanent physical or mental impairment
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death
