Eliquis is a drug that has been prescribed to individuals for preventing blood clots and to reduce the risk of having a stroke. However, it has been linked to serious, uncontrollable bleeding that can lead to death. This blood thinner is manufactured by Pfizer Inc. and Bristol-Myers Squibb. They have earned high profits from the marketing of this drug over the past several years, but they did nothing to actually notify patients or the public about some of the serious side effects associated with the medication. It is time to hold the manufacturers accountable for their wrongdoing. Our law firm is accepting clients in all 50 states for Eliquis Lawsuits.

The Symptoms from Taking Eliquis

Why Eliquis Lawsuits Are Necessary
Eliquis has been on the market since 2015, when it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The fact that it has been prescribed for individuals for three years means that it has negatively impacted the health and lives of a large number of people by now. The companies had some idea that the drug was defective and that there were possibly damaging side effects that could cause irreparable issues. It is crucial to get them to pay out a settlement for individuals who have been harmed. Also, it would serve to make an example and discourage the companies and others who manufacture medical drugs from being negligent in the future.
There is no real antidote to Eliquis once it has done damage to an individual. This means that any of the harm that has been done may not be reversed. The only way to rectify the situation is to receive financial compensation in order to have the assistance to pay for medical bills including any necessary surgeries and treatments, as well as to cover lost wages so that there is not as much of a burden on the individual and his or her family.
