Tennessee residents as well as people all over the United States have heard reports about the dangerous side effects that can result from using the blood thinning medication Pradaxa.

If you or someone you care about has severe and even life-threatening injuries after taking Pradaxa, then it is highly recommended that you speak to a Tennessee Pradaxa lawyer right away about your claim.
Nashville cardiologists are speaking up about their knowledge and opinions concerning the medication Pradaxa. Dr. Keith Churchwell, executive director of Vanderbilt’s Heart and Vascular Institute, states that the medication’s blood thinning effects occur faster with Pradaxa than other medications. He also says that, Pradaxa requires fewer exams and less diet restrictions than other medications. Finally he states that, “The big reason there’s been a slow response to putting more patients on Pradaxa is because of the significant bleeding. Right now, we don’t have a good mechanism to reverse it.”
Dr. George Crossley, who leads the cardiology program at Baptist Hospital, stated that he and his team were among the first people to test Pradaxa and he feels that the medication is a remarkable improvement compared to the medication Coudamin. Crossley also cited a study from a New England Journal of Medicine which concluded that Pradaxa is just as effective and safe as Coudamin.
Pradaxa Product liability lawsuits involving many people across the country including people from middle Tennessee are claiming that Pradaxa did not properly warn patients that the internal bleeding side effect could not be reversed.
