Three Plavix Lawsuits Allege Filed by Parker Waichman LLP

Filed May 4th, 2012 Laurie

Parker Waichman LLP recently filed a number of lawsuits on behalf individuals who allege the drug Plavix caused them to suffer life-threatening side effects, including three complaints filed on May 3, 2012, in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York. The lawsuits claim the use of Plavix caused the plaintiffs to suffer serious intestinal bleeds.

On April 20, Parker Waichman filed six Plavix bleeding lawsuits in that same court alleging the use of Plavix caused plaintiffs to experience serious side effects, including bleeding side effects, including gastrointestinal hemorrhage, cerebral hemorrhage and a blood condition called thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP).

Plavix was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1997 for the prevention of heart attack and stroke. Parker Waichman accuses drug makers Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis of falsely marketing the drug as more effective and safer in reducing the risk of ischemic events compared to a daily regimen of the less expensive aspirin.

All of Parker Waichman’s lawsuits allege that patients taking Plavix are at a significantly higher risk of serious, dangerous, and potentially fatal side effects including heart attack, stroke, internal bleeding, blood disorder and/or death. They also allege the makers of Plavix negligently and/or fraudulently represented to the medical and healthcare community, the FDA, the Plaintiffs and the public in general, that Plavix had been tested and was found to be safe and/or effective for its indicated use. The companies are also accused of concealing their knowledge of Plavix defects from all of the above.
