Blood Thinner Injury Lawsuits
Blood-thinning drugs (anticoagulants) are used to decrease the blood’s ability to clot, which can help reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and arterial blockages in patients suffering from atrial fibrillation—or abnormal heart rhythms. For many years, the anticoagulant warfarin (marketed as Coumadin®) was the only drug approved to treat atrial fibrillation. But a newer generation of blood-thinning drugs—such as Eliquis®, Pradaxa®, and Xarelto®—have been gaining popularity among doctors and patients as treatment alternatives.
Research suggests that patients taking Eliquis, Pradaxa, and Xarelto may face an increased the risk of serious injury or death during serious bleeding events. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we’re here to help if you or a loved one suffered from severe bleeding, stroke, or a blood clot after taking a blood-thinning drug.

Next-Generation Blood Thinner Risks
As a leader in national mass tort litigation, our drug injury lawyers have the knowledge and resources to help you get the money you need for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Blood thinner injury claims we handle include:
Eliquis is a next-generation anticoagulant from Bristol-Myers Squibb, the same pharmaceutical giant that markets warfarin under the brand name Coumadin. But unlike the older drug, Eliquis may increase the risk of severe bleeding, stroke, and blood clots.
Pradaxa is a prescription blood-thinning drug used to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AFib). But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced they are evaluating reports that bleeding is more likely in patients who use Pradaxa than in patients using other anticoagulants.
Approved by the FDA in 2011, the prescription blood thinner Xarelto has become one of the best selling drugs in the United States. But some patients may be up to three times more likely to suffer severe bleeding after taking Xarelto than patients who don’t take the drug.
If you were harmed by Eliquis, Pradaxa, or Xarelto, our legal team can answer your questions and help protect your legal rights.
