Have you just learned that a medicine you use or formerly used has been linked to cancer or other serious medical issues?

Learn about your options and obtain compensation for your losses by seeking the advice of a skilled attorney at the law office of Salter Ferguson, LLC.

Lawsuits were filed against Pradaxa manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim after more than 4,000 people experienced damaging bleeding and other side effects from taking Pradaxa. Then in 2011, 450 people died from taking the drug.

A $650 million compensation fund has been set up to compensate victims because:

  • The drug was marketed as a safe alternative to other blood thinners.
  • The drug was marketed as appropriate for anyone needing a blood thinner.
  • The manufacture failed to prove adequate disclosure of the drug's risks.
  • The drug has no antidote and the manufacturer did not inform doctors.
  • The company failed to recommend dosage in relation to a person's weight.

Contact Salter Ferguson, LLC today if you or a loved one took Pradaxa and experienced any of the following:

  • Uncontrolled, Excessive Bleeding
  • Extreme Bruising
  • Coughing Blood
  • Vomited Blood
  • Urinated Pink or Red Urine
  • Had Black, Tar-Like Stools
