Blood Thinners

Anti-coagulants, such as Heparin and Coumadin, are often necessary to maintain the health of a patient. However, they carry certain serious risks. If too much is given, patients can bleed extensively. If too little is given, clotting can occur. Medical providers have a duty to use the utmost care when prescribing or administering these medications — often called blood thinners. They must test patients extensively, monitor patients for interactions with other drugs and foods, and make proper estimations regarding dosage.

Failure to take these actions can have life-altering results. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we represent patients and the surviving family members of people killed by blood thinner errors.
