AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Beatrice Mills, Maricopa, AZ, alleging that Mills had to be hospitalized after Plavix caused uncontrolled bleeding and permanently damaged her health.

The lawsuit alleges that Mills was prescribed Plavix on January 7, 2009 and on January 12, 2009 she began to hemorrhage and had to go to the hospital. She was released on January 20th, but had to go back into the hospital on January 25th for continuing clotting and bleeding problems. She was finally discharged on January 30th.

The lawsuit alleges strict product liability, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, common law fraud, negligence, negligent  and fraudulent misrepresentation,  and express and implied warranty.

The lawsuit states that  “Plavix was marketed as a super-aspirin with greater cardiovascular benefits  than..aspirin while being safer and easier on a person’s stomach than aspirin. Those assertions have proven to be false. The truth is..Plavix was not more efficacious than aspirin to prevent heart attacks and strokes. More importantly though..the risk of suffering a heart attack, stroke, internal bleeding, blood disorder or death far outweigh any potential benefit” of taking Plavix.

The lawsuit seeks a sum in excess of court costs and fees, and for relief as deemed just and proper by the court.
