Bernstein Liebhard LLP Launches Pradaxa Lawsuit Website Providing Information on Mounting Pradaxa Litigation, Side Effects
Date:1/20/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 20, 2013

Bernstein Liebhard LLP has launched a new Pradaxa lawsuit website dedicated to informing the public about the harmful side effects that may stem from the blood thinner manufactured by Boehringer-Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals Inc. The information provided by the firm’s new Pradaxa website is vital to anyone seeking to file a Pradaxa lawsuit.

Bernstein Liebhard LLP is currently offering free and confidential Pradaxa lawsuit evaluations to patients who have sustained the following injuries:

  •     Gastrointestinal (stomach) bleeding;
  •     Cerebral hemorrhaging (bleeding in the brain);
  •     Severe internal bleeding following a minor trauma, such as a fall; or
  •     Death from serious internal bleeding.

“We are receiving more and more inquiries from people who claim to have suffered life-threatening Pradaxa bleeding side effects. Our new website will help provide information about potential Pradaxa side effects, as well as updates on the mounting number of Pradaxa lawsuits being filed by people around the U.S.," says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of drugs and medical devices.

Pradaxa, a blood thinner prescribed to reduce the risk of stroke and embolism in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010. In 2011, the FDA received reports of 3,781 side effects and 542 deaths tied to the blood thinner, according to a recent article from Bloomberg.com.*

Patients with artificial heart valves were recently found to be at a heightened risk for suffering Pradaxa side effects. Following this revelation, the FDA issued a public health communication on December 19, 2012 informing health care providers and the public that Pradaxa should not be used to prevent stroke or blood clots in patients with mechanical heart valves. The agency also announced that all health care providers would be receiving “Dear Doctor Letters” from the company alerting them of this change.**

Pradaxa Lawsuits
A number of Pradaxa lawsuits have already been filed on behalf of patients who experienced side effects associated with the drug. These Pradaxa lawsuits have since been consolidated into the multidistrict litigation, In re: Pradaxa Product Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2385”) underway in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois and are pending before Judge David R. Herndon. According to a report in the Madison Record, 176 Pradaxa lawsuits were pending in this MDL as of Jan. 10, 2013.***

Patients who took Pradaxa and suffered excessive bleeding side effects may be entitled to file a Pradaxa lawsuit to receive compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, as well as any pain and suffering they may have been caused as a result of their injury.
