Heart medications can deal with a number of potential diseases and disorders affecting the human heart. However, they may also carry serious and life-threatening side effects.

If you have taken a heart medication like Multap or a Proton Pump Inhibitor and suffered injury or illness, call Thomas J. Henry Law.


HAVE YOU BEEN HARMED BY A HEART DISEASE MEDICATION?

The heart is a complicated organ, and there are many diseases and disorders that can affect the heart. These conditions can drastically affect a person’s quality of life. Medications are prescribed to help treat or manage the symptoms of these conditions. Common heart conditions include:

  • Arrhythmia
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart valve problems
  • Pericarditis
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Stroke
  • Venous thromboembolism
  • Death

DANGERS ASSOCIATED WITH HEART DISEASE MEDICATIONS

Unfortunately, heart disease drugs oftentimes cause additional, severe problems for patients. Heart disease medications have been linked to dangerous, life-threatening side effects. Dangerous drugs can cause more severe problems than they were intended to treat.

  • Multaq (dronedarone) — An antiarrhythmic drug prescribed to reduce the risk of hospitalization in patients with
    permanent atrial fibrillation (AF) or atrial flutter. Multaq has been linked to an increased risk of heart
    failure, liver failure, and hypokalemia.
  • Statins (such as Lipitor, Crestor, Zocor) — Statins are a class of drug that lowers the cholesterol in the blood
    by reducing production in the liver. They are often prescribed to treat atherosclerosis. Statins have been
    linked to muscle tissue death, serious liver damage, kidney failure, and onset of diabetes.
  • Anticoagulants (warfarin) — These drugs, also referred to as blood thinners, help prevent blood clots and is
    prescribed to treat various heart conditions. Anticoagulants, such as Pradaxa and Coumadin, contain a black box
    warning for a bleeding risk. A 2012 report from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices revealed that
    anticoagulants were the most frequent type of drug tied to serious, disabling, and fatal injuries in 2011.

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States, killing approximately 610,000 people each year. People suffering from these conditions look to prescription medications to help treat, manage, or cure their ailments. Sadly, medications that are prescribed to heal instead cause additional severe illnesses and injuries — or even death. Pharmaceutical companies fail to provide adequate warnings of the risks associated with their drugs. When patients are injured as a result, drug companies need to be brought to justice.

The attorneys at Thomas J. Henry Law have the resources and experience necessary to take on pharmaceutical giants from across the world. If you or a loved one has been injured after taking a heart medication, contact our experienced dangerous drug lawyers for a free legal consultation.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions
to help you make critical decisions, navigate
legal process and help you get justice.

Following an accident, there are always more questions
than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer
any questions you have about your injury case.

A tort is a civil wrongful act committed by a person or company that results in harm to another person. A mass tort is when multiple victims are injured by the same single tort.
A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:
  • whether a large number of plaintiffs are involved
  • whether the plaintiffs are located near or far from each other;
  • whether the injuries sustained are similar among the plaintiffs;
  • whether the claims arose from the same cause (defective toy, car part, oil spill, etc.)
  • Defective products, such as car parts, toys, or other consumer goods.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs, such as those that are later linked to severe or fatal health consequences
  • Environmental hazards, such as polluted water sources contaminated by nearby industrial sites or an oil leak.
Thousands of lawsuits across the country may be filed with a mass tort. These lawsuits are filed in numerous federal district courts. In a mass tort, federal judges will consolidate the thousands of lawsuits into a single proceeding. One judge in a single federal district court will oversee litigation, allowing for consistent rulings and a more expeditious process for the plaintiffs.
In a mass tort, each plaintiff (injured person) has an individual claim resulting from their unique damages. In a class action, many plaintiffs are considered collectively. Similarly, in a mass tort, each individual's claim "value" is unique to the severity of their injuries. In a class action, plaintiffs generally suffer injuries of similar severity, resulting in the same amount of compensation value.
If you have been injured or suffered illness due to a recalled drug, having an expert witnesses can be essential to proving your claim. Thomas J. Henry has spent decades building professional relationships with leading experts including:
  • Pharmacologists
  • Toxicologists
  • Regulatory Compliance Consultants
  • Forensic toxicologists
  • Drug Injury Causation Experts
  • Biomechanics
