The Dangers of Coumadin

Coumadin is a difficult drug to manage because its therapeutic/toxic ratio is very small. For this reason, patients must be carefully monitored while receiving this drug.

When a doctor administers too much Coumadin, it thins the blood too much, leaving the patient vulnerable to internal bleeding, bleeding brain injuries, and other serious medical setbacks. When a doctor does not administer enough Coumadin, the patient is not protected from the problems the drug was intended to prevent, whether it is a dangerous blood clot or pulmonary embolism.

Every patient reacts differently to Coumadin. A doctor must carefully review a patient’s medical record to determine if the patient will have a harmful reaction to an anticoagulant drug.

Misuse of Heparin

Heparin is a blood-thinning drug that has been linked to serious allergic reactions and wrongful death. In 2008, Baxter International, Inc., the manufacturer of the drug, issued a recall of Heparin due to contaminated batches that were manufactured in China.

Exposure to contaminated Heparin can cause serious injuries such as organ failure, decreased blood pressure, nausea, shortness of breath, and headaches. If you or a loved one has suffered due to the use of Heparin or Coumadin, our Ohio medical malpractice lawyers are here to help you seek just compensation for the losses you have suffered.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
