FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Memphis Dangerous Drug Lawyer Now Accepting Pradaxa Cases
Memphis, TN, 4/5/2012 — As of April 5, 2012, Tennessee personal injury attorneys Darrell Castle & Associates PLLC will accept injury cases involving the anticoagulant drug Pradaxa. Pradaxa, a blood-thinning medicine, has been linked to heart attacks, uncontrolled bleeding, and death.
Doctors prescribe Pradaxa, whose chemical name is dabigatran etexilate mesylate, to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Boehringer Ingelheim manufactures the medication, which received FDA approval in October 2010.
Pradaxa has been known to increase the risk for serious and sometimes fatal health problems, including cardiac arrest, severe and uncontrollable bleeding, and death. Memphis attorney Darrell Castle believes these risks likely outweigh the benefits of Pradaxa.
“When taking blood thinning medications, it’s crucial patients know the risks involved,” says Castle. “If they’ve been inadequately warned about the potentially fatal side effects of Pradaxa, they can’t make wise choices or pursue alternative medications that may be safer for them.”
Castle’s Memphis-based attorneys represent drug injury clients from around the Mid-South and Tennessee. Their experience in dangerous drug lawsuits includes Darvon/Darvocet, Tylenol, Actos, Yaz/Yasmin, Zocor/Vytorin, and more.
Patients or loved ones who have suffered serious injury while taking Pradaxa may be entitled to compensation. They can receive a free case evaluation or more information by filling out a short contact form or contacting Ginger at 901-327-1212.
