Blood Thinners


Blood thinners (anticoagulants) are medications that make it more difficult for a patient’s blood to clot.  This effect can reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and arterial blockage in patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation (abnormal heart rhythms).  For years the medication Coumadin (also known as Warfarin) was the most commonly prescribed medication for individuals suffering from atrial fibrillation.  However, recently several newer drugs have emerged on the market as solutions for patients suffering from atrial fibrillation.  These drugs include: Eliquis®, Pradaxa®, and Xarelto®.

Research suggests that individuals taking Eliquis®, Pradaxa® and Xarelto® may face an increased risk of serious injury or death if they experience a serious bleeding event.  If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or death after experiencing a serious bleeding event while taking one of these drugs, contact our team at (800) 716-9032 for a free consultation today.


If you believe you or a loved one may have been harmed by Eliquis®, Pradaxa® or Xarelto®, our legal team can help you determine whether or not you are entitled to compensation.
