Your Blood Thinner Litigation Attorney
Approved by the FDA in October 2010 to prevent strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation, Pradaxa was the first blood thinner to compete with the longtime treatment of warfarin (brand names Coumadin and Jantoven). Just over a year later, research began to emerge, linking Pradaxa to serious bleeding risks that were not communicated to patients.
In December 2011, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety announcement regarding the bleeding incidents reported for patients taking Pradaxa. The FDA notes such bleeding risks are serious and have proven deadly. Later, in November 2014, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that Pradaxa is associated with a 30% greater risk of a bleeding event, a 58% greater risk of major bleeding, and 85% greater risk of gastrointestinal bleeding.
The reports resulted in thousands of lawsuits against the maker of Pradaxa for victims of uncontrollable bleeding events. The lawsuits were spearheaded by Michael Brady Lynch and a select group of mass tort attorneys from around the country.
Attorney Lynch was a member of the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee in the Pradaxa Multi-District Litigation and instrumental in securing the $650 million settlement for those injured by Pradaxa’s uncontrollable bleeding. He continues to be a leader in blood thinner litigation nationwide in representing those who continue to suffer uncontrollable bleeding events from Pradaxa or Xarelto.
Xarelto has brought similar issues to patients. It came on the market in 2011 to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and blood clots. Manufacturers Bayer and Janssen promoted the drug has the gold standard for anticoagulants. However, it may be more dangerous than other medications on the market since there was not an antidote until May 2018.
Attorney Lynch has said, “The U.S. numbers for Pradaxa and Xarelto bleeding events are truly staggering. It is on the verge of a national health disaster.”
