Pradaxa Injury Attorneys
Considering Filing a Product Liability Lawsuit?
Pradaxa is intended to help people diagnosed with atrial fibrillation reduce the risk of blood clots and, by extension, strokes, deep vein thrombosis, and pulmonary embolism. Unfortunately, in order to do this it thins the blood and greatly increases the risk of internal bleeding. Pradaxa was associated with more deaths and injuries than any other drugs reviewed by the Institute of Safe Medication Practices in 2011.
If you have been injured by Pradaxa, or have lost a loved one to internal bleeding after taking the drug, contact Johnston Law Group. Our dangerous drug attorneys aggressively fight for the damage recovery our clients deserve.

Adverse Effects of Pradaxa
In addition to causing profuse bleeding, Pradaxa also poses a risk to people have an allergic reaction to the drug. Some symptoms of a reaction include hives, difficulty breathing, and swelling in the face. Seek medical attention immediately if you experience any of these after taking Pradaxa.
Pradaxa can also result in:
- Blood in urine or stool
- Headaches and dizziness
- Wounds that won't stop bleeding
- Easy bruising
- Stomach pain
- Spinal blood clots
Despite the known dangers, Pradaxa, and other blood thinners remain in distribution and is taken by numerous unsuspecting patients with atrial fibrillation. These people should have been warned of the dangers, and even if they were, they should receive assistance for their pain and suffering if the drug caused them harm.
