Pradaxa

Pradaxa

If you or a loved one suffered from excessive bleeding while taking the drug Pradaxa, you may be eligible for damages.

Pradaxa is a blood thinning drug that has been prescribed to treat patients with non-vascular atrial fibrillation or afib. This second-generation blood thinner has been touted and marketed as a safe and effective alternative to Warfarin (Coumadin) which has been used for many years to treat patients with afib and other health conditions.

This drug has been linked to an increased risk of injury that includes severe bleeding. Once bleeding begins, this drug lacks the necessary antidote or counteracting agent to reverse its effect making bleeding in many cases uncontrollable and severe. Unfortunately, there have been many cases of death associated with this side effect.

Pradaxa

Pradaxa (dabigatran) was brought to market by the Boehringer Ingelheim company in 2010. In 2014, the FDA published a study showing that Pradaxa had an increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding compared to Warfarin. (Click here to read the study.) Thousands of individuals who alleged they were injured by Pradaxa filed claims and lawsuits against Boehringer Ingelheim. In these lawsuits, evidence was developed that showed Boehringer Ingelheim failed to share data it had regarding the increased risk of bleeding. In May 2014 the company announced that it would pay $650 million to settle the claims and lawsuits of individuals who had suffered injuries as a result of taking Pradaxa.
