My father had been taking coumadin/ warfarin for along time now, I know this pill has to be monitored very carefully and believe me my parents get blood work every month and stress tests and every other test older people are suppose to get during the year, he has been taken off this and put on the new drug called pradoxa because he has developed sores on his legs that would not heal and turned black, he is now going to a wound center to be treated every thursday. He has been told the warfarin is the cause of this, we have pictures and they had to cut the big black scabs off and clean out the dead tissue in these sores, the tissue in these big holes in his legs are not healing proper because
It would probably not be a bad idea to check out the new drug, also.
Personal injury attorneys nearly always give a free initial consultation.
The insurance industry’s own statistics indicate that once an attorney becomes involved, the value of any claim at least doubles.
Put those two facts together and it is in your best interest to retain experienced legal counsel at your earliest possible convenience.
I truly wish you the best.

Yes, there have been a lot of lawsuits arising from use (or misuse) of Coumadin or warfarin. It is a very valuable drug but it is powerful and has to be used carefully. Patients taking it need to be monitored. Most experienced medical malpractice lawyers have handled cases involving this drug. Consult with a medical malpractice lawyer in your area.
