Pradaxa Lawyers Orlando
FDA Warning, Action or Recall: The FDA is in the process of conducting a safety review for Pradaxa given that over 500 deaths was reported to be associated with this drug in 2011.
Our Orlando law firm attorneys have vast expertise in handling claims of people against huge corporate empires. Pharmaceutical companies who fail to properly test drugs such as Pradaxa before marketing to the public must be held accountable when consumers are harmed. The manufacturer of Pradaxa, Boehringer, Ingelheim is a German company who failed to release an antidote to stop the potential internal bleeding that could occur from this drug. At Todd Copeland and Associates, our medical injury attorneys work closely with pharmaceutical experts to assure that pharmaceutical companies are held responsible for their negligent behavior.
