Pradaxa Bleeding Lawsuits
According to court documents, 1,488 Pradaxa side effect claims have been filed in the Southern District of Illinois on behalf of alleged victims of Pradaxa bleeding. The lawsuits filed in the litigation accuse Boehringer Ingelheim of marketing Pradaxa even though it was aware that the drug could cause dangerous and potentially fatal hemorrhaging in some patients. Plaintiffs further allege that the company failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the lack of a readily available antidote to reverse the bleeding that can sometimes occur with Pradaxa. reported in December 2012 that Pradaxa has been the subject of regulatory warnings in several countries, due to its association with internal bleeding, a known Pradaxa side effect. While it was touted as an improvement over warfarin, there is currently no easy way to stop internal bleeding should it occur in Pradaxa patients. By contrast, warfarin bleeding can be staunched with the administration of vitamin K.* According to the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices (ISMP), an analysis of hemorrhage cases reported to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration during the second quarter of 2012 found that Pradaxa bleeding is 5 times more likely to result in death compared to warfarin bleeding.

Patients who allegedly suffered life-threating Pradaxa bleeding may be eligible to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
