Pradaxa is a prescription drug prescribed by many doctors across the country to patients who are at risk of strokes or blood clots. Also known as dabigatran, Pradaxa is an anticoagulant (commonly referred to as a “blood thinner”) used by millions of individuals each year.
Although Pradaxa is meant to reduce the risk for stroke or blood clots, it has recently gained attention for some of its injurious and occasionally deadly side effects. In fact, a local news investigation quoted a senior scientist for drug safety and policy at the Institute for Safe Medication Practices who said Pradaxa was blamed for 1,158 deaths and 12,494 serious injuries in the United States since 2010.
If you suffered a serious injury due to Pradaxa, consult an attorney in the Dallas area about filing a claim for damages.
