Three Plavix Lawsuits Filed by Parker Waichman

Filed February 24th, 2012 Julie

Parker Waichman LLP has filed three lawsuits against Bristol-Myers Squibb Company and Sanofi Aventis. The suits were filed on behalf of individuals who allegedly suffered life-threatening bleeding side effects from taking the blood-thinning drug Plavix. The cases were filed in New York State Supreme Court on Feb. 21.

The lawsuits allege that people who use Plavix have a higher risk of serious and potential side effects that include heart attack, stroke, internal bleeding, blood disorder and/or death. Two plaintiffs say they suffered gastrointestinal hemorrhage as a result of taking the drug. The third lawsuit was filed on behalf of the estate of a Washington State man who suffered cerebral hemorrhage and died after using Plavix for less than a year.

All three lawsuits charge Bristol-Myers and Sanofi with negligence; Strict Products Liability, including Defective Design,
Manufacturing Defect, and Failure to Warn; Breach of Express and Implied Warranties; Fraudulent Misrepresentation; Fraudulent Concealment; Negligent Misrepresentation; Fraud and Deceit; and Consumer Fraud under New York State’s General Business Law.

Plaintiffs are seeking punitive, compensatory and exemplary damages on behalf of each Plaintiff, as well as attorney’s fees and costs, and other relief as the Court deems necessary, just and proper.
