Pradaxa Lawsuits Mount, as Filings in Federal Pradaxa Side Effect Litigation Exceed 800, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:5/25/2013

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

Pradaxa lawsuits filed on behalf of patients who allegedly suffered serious, life-threatening episodes of internal bleeding while using the blood thinner continue to mount in a federal litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to a posting on the Court’s website, 818 Pradaxa side effect claims had been filed in the litigation as of May 24, 2013. That’s up from 705 claims reported by the Court on May 15th. ( In Re: Pradaxa (Dabigatran Etexilate) Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2385)

“We are not surprised that the Pradaxa lawsuits filed in this litigation are increasing at such a rapid rate. Our Firm receives inquiries on a regular basis from Pradaxa patients who have allegedly suffered serious instances of internal bleeding,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is offering free Pradaxa side effect lawsuit evaluations to anyone who suffered internal bleeding while using the blood thinner.

Pradaxa Side Effects
Plaintiffs with claims pending in the Pradaxa side effect litigation allege that Boehringer Ingelheim failed to adequately warn that there is no readily-available antidote for internal bleeding that is sometimes associated with use of the blood thinner. According to a Bloomberg.com report published in December 2012, regulators in several countries have issued alerts regarding Pradaxa’s potential to cause dangerous internal bleeding in some patients.* Pradaxa was supposed to be an improvement over warfarin, a decades old blood thinner. However, warfarin bleeding can be stopped via the administration of vitamin K, while dialysis is the only available treatment for this Pradaxa side effect.    However, research published In May 2012 in the Journal of Neurosurgery indicated that dialysis is risky and may not be administered in enough time to stop Pradaxa bleeding.**

Since the publication of that study, additional research has indicated that Pradaxa bleeding is far more dangerous than the hemorrhaging that sometimes occurs with warfarin. In January, for example, a study of FDA hemorrhage cases published in the Institute for Safe Medication Practice’s QuarterWatch report found that Pradaxa patients who experienced internal bleeding were 5 times more likely to die in comparison to warfarin patients who suffered bleeding.*** On May 1st, the same journal published a study that showed head trauma victims were more likely to die from brain bleeding if they had been using Pradaxa compared to those taking the older blood thinner.****

Alleged victims of Pradaxa side effects may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
