It has been reported that at least three Pradaxa lawsuits
have been filed against the drug’s manufacturer, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals. One of the cases is a wrongful death lawsuit, filed by the daughter of a Tennessee woman who claims that her mother died due to her use of Pradaxa. According to the Pradaxa lawsuit, the patient was prescribed the blood thinner in early 2011 to treat a type of cardiac arrhythmia known as atrial fibrillation. Two months after the drug was prescribed, the woman allegedly suffered a massive gastrointestinal bleed. According to reports, this Pradaxa death lawsuit claims that the manufacturer failed to warn patients about the risk of Pradaxa bleeding and released a drug which does not have an antidote and is no safer than older alternatives. It has been alleged that any bleeding on Pradaxa has the potential to be serious, as there is no simple antidote to stop excessive bleeding.
Patients who experienced a serious bleeding episode while taking Pradaxa, as well as loved ones acting on their behalf, may have legal recourse in light of these allegations. Potentially, these individuals may be able to file a Pradaxa lawsuit seeking compensation for medical bills and other damages. While taking legal action cannot reverse an injury or bring a loved one back, it can help to provide financial stability during a difficult time.
