Parker Waichman representing New York woman in Plavix hemorrhaging lawsuit

Filed August 9th, 2012 Joshua Sophy

The national law firm of Parker Waichman LLP has recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a New York woman who claims taking the blood-thinner drug Plavix caused her to suffer severe and life-threatening gastrointestinal hemorrhaging.

The lawsuit was filed late last month in Supreme Court of New York against Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi Aventis, the companies responsible for manufacturing and distributing the drug. It is just the latest to make this claim and is one of numerous others filed by Parker Waichman.

The Plaintiff in the lawsuit claims she was prescribed Plavix as a blood-thinner treatment in the prevention of blood clots, heart attacks, and stroke. It charges the drug companies with failing to warn of the risk of gastrointestinal and cerebral hemorrhaging. The lawsuit seeks damages for severe and permanent injuries, physical impairment and disfigurement, physical and mental pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, according to a release from the firm.

Plavix has been touted as some type of super aspirin drug and was promoted as a supplement to the common over-the-counter medication to help prevent heart attacks and stroke. Those claims were proven untrue by numerous studies since those claims and the companies have received warnings about making these claims.

The Plaintiff was prescribed Plavix in April 2009 and soon afterward suffered a severe episode of gastrointestinal hemorrhaging.
