Patients at risk for blood clots and embolisms face risks from over- or undertreatment. Failure to provide anticoagulation therapy can result in debilitating strokes or heart attacks. In the event the surgeon does everything right, there is still the possibility that the anticoagulant drug can create a problem, as has been the case with the blood thinner Coumadin.
At Miller & Wagner, our attorneys investigate and present damage claims for negligent management of anticoagulation therapy. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. With offices in Eugene and Portland, our lawyers represent plaintiffs injured by medical negligence throughout Oregon and Washington.
Recall of Coumadin Due to Potential for Overdose
Coumadin is the brand name of the blood thinner warfarin. The drug has recently been recalled after tests found that many Coumadin pills had too high potency, leading to a dangerous hemorrhaging or internal bleeding. The anticoagulation drug heparin has also been recalled due to allergic reactions.
If you have been injured as a result of negligence of anticoagulation therapy, you may be entitled to full compensation for the damages you have suffered from all liable parties, including your physician and the company that manufactured the drug.
