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 thinner drugs—such as Pradaxa—have been gaining popularity among doctors and patients as treatment alternatives.
Research suggests that patients taking Pradaxa 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.

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.
