Date:12/15/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) December 15, 2013

Nearly 2,000 Pradaxa lawsuits (http://www.pradaxalawsuithelp.com/ ) continue to move forward in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, the proceeding's next Status Conference will be held on December 20, 2013 at 3:30 p.m. This month’s conference will be conducted via teleconference. (In Re: Pradaxa (Dabigatran Etexilate) Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2385)

“We are continuing to investigate product liability claims on behalf of alleged victims of Pradaxa bleeding side effects. We look forward to more progress in this litigation,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Pradaxa lawsuit evaluations to individuals who suffered serious internal bleeding while using this blood thinner.

Pradaxa Lawsuits
According to court documents, 1,952 Pradaxa lawsuits are now pending in the proceeding underway in Illinois federal court. All of the lawsuits allege that Boehringer Ingelheim failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of serious Pradaxa bleeding, including the fact that there currently exists no effective antidote to reverse this potential side effect. In November, the Court established a protocol for selecting bellwether cases for the litigation’s first trials. Those trials are scheduled to begin in August 2014.

The Institute for Safe Medicine Practices reported in October that last year alone, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received 3,200 reports of Pradaxa adverse events, more than any other drug tracked by the agency. Furthermore, the reports included 582 that had fatal outcomes. The same year, warfarin, a much older blood thinner that Pradaxa was supposed to replace, was the subject of just 861 reports, including 56 deaths. Among other things, the ISMP cited the lack of an antidote to reverse the drug’s anticoagulant effects as one possible reason for these numbers.*

Alleged victims of Pradaxa bleeding side effects may be entitled to financial damages for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. To find out more about filing a Pradaxa lawsuit, please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. For a free case review, please call 800-511-5092.
