Lawyers.com Supervising Producer John McCarthy interviews attorney Brenda Fulmer, an expert on Pradaxa litigation. She reports that the drug was approved by the FDA on the basis of only one single internal study performed by the company that produces it, and that scientific studies on the effects of Pradaxa are still lacking. Most data is being gathered from adverse reaction reports made to the FDA and other regulatory agencies worldwide.

Fulmer explains that time patients may only have a year to bring a suit in some jurisdictions, so it’s imperative to contact a lawyer immediately if you have suffered any adverse side effects from taking Pradaxa.
