Date:7/25/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

Pradaxa lawsuit claims continue to move forward in the federal litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. Court records indicate that the litigation’s most recent Status Conference was held on July 9th, at which time the appointment of a special master for depositions was discussed, as was the scheduling of depositions for the proceedings’ bellwether trials. The Court also scheduled the Pradaxa bleeding litigation’s next Status Conference for August 8, 2013. (In Re: Pradaxa (Dabigatran Etexilate) Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2385)

“We continue to hear from alleged victims of Pradaxa bleeding side effects. We are pleased to see this litigation moving forward,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free legal evaluations to alleged victims of Pradaxa bleeding.

Pradaxa Bleeding Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that more than 1,250 Pradaxa lawsuits have been filed in the Southern District of Illinois, all of which allege that Boehringer Ingelheim failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the drug’s side effects, particularly the lack of an antidote for Pradaxa bleeding. The first bellwether trial in the Pradaxa bleeding litigation is scheduled to start in September 2014.

Pradaxa was approved in October 2010 to treat patients with atrial fibrillation. However, since Pradaxa came on the market, the drug has been the subject of regulatory warnings in several countries, according to Bloomberg.com. While it was touted as an improvement over warfarin, there exists no readily available antidote for reversing the life-threatening internal bleeding that can sometimes occur in Pradaxa patients.* Most recently, a study published by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices (ISMP) reported that Pradaxa bleeding is 5 times more likely to result in death compared to warfarin bleeding.**

Pradaxa patients who have suffered serious episodes of internal bleeding may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
