(PRWEB) May 13, 2013
A major medical journal published a study this month that reported an alleged increase in deaths in patients with closed head injuries who use the blood thinner Pradaxa.* The Pradaxa attorneys at the Rottenstein Law Group LLP acknowledge the study’s results, noting that excessive bleeding is among the drug’s alleged side effects the firm hears about from prospective Pradaxa plaintiffs.
A cohort of Palm Beach County, Florida, surgeons reviewed data from procedures on adults over 18 years old who suffered different types of closed head injuries and then determined if the patients were using warfarin, Pradaxa (dabigatran), or were not using any anticoagulation drugs, according to the study published in the May 1, 2013, edition of the Journal of Neurosurgery.
“Alleged excessive bleeding incidents are at the center of Pradaxa lawsuits in federal court,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP, referring to a multidistrict litigation formed in federal court in Illinois (In re Pradaxa Products Liability Litigation, MDL-2385, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois (East St. Louis)).
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP encourages those who were allegedly harmed by Pradaxa to visit the firm’s website to download a free brochure to help them determine if they have a case.
