Pradaxa Lawsuit News: Wright & Schulte LLC Reports on Growing Pradaxa Bleeding Litigation, As Number of Filings Exceed 1,800
Date:12/2/2013

Colubus, OH (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

The products liability litigation surrounding Pradaxa continues to grow, as Wright & Schulte LLC notes that the number of Pradaxa lawsuits pending in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Ohio has now exceeded 1,800. According to court documents, at least 1,844 claims have been filed in the Southern District of Ohio on behalf of 1,929 plaintiffs. All of the lawsuits allege that Boehringer Ingelheim, the manufacturer of the blood thinner, failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the potential for Pradaxa bleeding side effects, especially the lack of an effective antidote to reverse internal hemorrhaging that may occur with the drug. Wright & Schulte LLC believes these alleged problems, inadequate labeling and no antidote for Pradaxa, are the reasons for the continued escalation of Pradaxa lawsuits.

Most of the reports involved cases of Pradaxa bleeding, and more than 582 detailed fatalities among Pradaxa users.

In its report, the ISMP was sharply critical of the FDA, which continues to maintain that Pradaxa is as safe as the decades-old blood thinner, warfarin. Both drugs can sometimes cause serious internal bleeding. However, administration of vitamin K can quickly bring an end to warfarin bleeding. The ISMP pointed out that while 18% of Pradaxa adverse events involved a fatality, only 6.5% of those attributed to warfarin reported a simi
