Did you or a loved one use Pradaxa and suffer an adverse reaction?
If you or a family member took Pradaxa and suffered a serious personal injury or wrongful death, you may still have a legal claim. Side effects can include:
- Excessive or fatal bleeding
- Heart attack
- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Unusual bruising
- Joint pain
- Discolored urine or stools
Even though many claims have settled, you or a loved one may still be able to bring a claim or file a lawsuit related to injuries from Pradaxa.
As reported by media outlets around the world, thousands of Pradaxa bleeding lawsuits settled just last year in 2014 for $650 million. While that multidistrict litigation did resolve many injury and death claims, more such claims have arisen since the settlement was finalized.
Pradaxa Still Fails to Warn of Severe Bleeding Risks
Pharmaceutical drug manufacturers, including the makers of Pradaxa, Boehringer Ingelheim, may be held liable when their drugs cause injuries to patients. This is especially true where, as in the case of Pradaxa, they do not inform doctors and patients of all the potential risks, side effects and dangers.
While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has modified some portions of the Pradaxa warnings, labeling, and/or packaging, many believe these changes are nowhere near sufficient. The FDA does still not have a “black box” warning (its strictest and most visible warning) to consumers indicating the severity of the bleeding risks associated with Pradaxa use. The label in fact does not showcase the bleeding risks until section 5.2, which is buried within the pages of its prescription drug packaging that most users will never see.
