Blood Thinner Lawsuit Attorneys
Understanding Blood Thinner Dangers & Your Rights
Blood thinners, or anticoagulants, are drugs designed to prevent the blood from clotting. They are used to reduce the risk of stroke in patients suffering from non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AFib). Although they can offer real benefits to some patients, in others they may cause serious or even fatal side effects. Patients may be left facing expensive medical bills and uncertain futures. Families may lose loved ones.
At Crumley Roberts, we understand the difficulties faced by patients and families who have suffered from blood thinner side effects. We want to take away your worry by providing experienced counsel and compassionate support in your time of need. Our drug injury attorneys take on lawsuits involving various types of anticoagulants. With offices in 14 locations across the two states, we are prepared to offer counsel no matter where you are located.
Our team is currently investigating blood thinner lawsuits involving:
- Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) – approved by the FDA in 2011 and generating more than $320 million in sales, this blood thinner has been linked to major bleeding in certain patients and may increase the risk of stroke or blood clots.
- Eliquis® (apixaban) – this anticoagulant lacks a counteracting drug to stop severe bleeding. It has been linked to such side effects as gastrointestinal bleeding, blood clots, brain bleeding, and bleeding in the skull.
- Pradaxa® (dabigatran) – this drug was approved by the FDA in 2010 and has generated over $1 billion in sales worldwide, but it has been associated with a fatal bleeding risk in some patients. Pradaxa® manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim has already faced thousands of lawsuits on behalf of injured patients and their families.
