Jacksonville Pradaxa® Wrongful Death Lawyer

Pradaxa Wrongful Death

Pradaxa is a blood thinner that was once prescribed to many patients who had non-ventricular atrial fibrillation and other heart conditions. The purpose for prescribing Pradaxa was often to prevent clotting that could lead to stroke, pulmonary embolism, or other life-threatening conditions. Unfortunately, Pradaxa can cause a life-threatening condition of its own: uncontrollable internal bleeding that can result in death.

Pradaxa can cause serious side effects, some of which are deadly. If you’ve lost a loved one to serious side effects from Pradaxa (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) use, you’re not alone. The Jacksonville dangerous drug lawyers at Farah & Farah can help you seek the compensation you need to handle medical bills; funeral and burial expenses; lost wages and benefits; and the loss of the companionship and care of your loved one.

Wrongful Death in Florida

Florida law allows the personal representative of a deceased person to bring a wrongful death claim if the negligence of another person, company, or organization caused the deceased person’s death. When a medication like Pradaxa causes a death, the deceased person’s estate may seek damages via a wrongful death claim.

In some Pradaxa-related cases, the injured person was pursuing a personal injury claim on his or her own behalf when the death occurred. When this happens, the deceased person’s estate can still pursue a wrongful death claim. The personal injury claim "abates," or ends, and the wrongful death claim may begin. The wrongful death claim may be based on any medical or other evidence collected while the injured person and his or her Florida Pradaxa injury lawyer were investigating or building their case.

Damages in a Pradaxa Wrongful Death

When Pradaxa claims a life, those who lost their loved one may seek damages for their loss. Damages that are typically compensated in a successful Florida wrongful death case include:

  • medical, funeral, and burial expenses;
  • the value of lost earnings, including wages and benefits;
  • the value of lost support and services from the date of injury to the date of death;
  • the value of lost support and services after the date of death;
  • loss of companionship and protection;
  • loss of parental guidance; and
  • pain and suffering.

The amount of damages available and the types of damages a family may receive depend on the facts of each particular case. A wrongful death attorney in Jacksonville can help you understand how the state’s damages rules apply in your situation and where you stand, giving you valuable information you can use to decide on the best course of action for you and your family.
