PRADAXA LAWSUITS

CALL OUR LEGAL TEAM TODAY: (678)-846-6900

According to DrugWatch.com, more than 4,000 patients who used Pradaxa, a blood thinner drug, suffered damaging side effects, such as rectal, brain, and gastrointestinal bleeding, and hundreds of individuals sustained fatal injuries. As a result, many patients have filed lawsuits against Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Pradaxa. In May 2014, the manufacturer agreed to pay $650 million to settle all federal and state lawsuits. Unfortunately, individuals continue to suffer these avoidable, life-threatening injuries.

COMMON CLAIMS AGAINST BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM PHARMACEUTICALS

There have been several types of claims made against Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals after individuals have suffered negative side effects as a result of using Pradaxa.
These include:

  • The company advertised that Pradaxa is safer and more convenient than warfarin, another blood-thinning drug. Studies proved that Pradaxa has the same or a higher risk for bleeding than warfarin. In addition, studies proved there is no antidote for excessive bleeding for Pradaxa users.
  • The manufacturer advertised Pradaxa as a “one-size-fits-all” medication and did not necessitate physician checkups to monitor and adjust dosage amounts.
  • The manufacturer did not adequately disclose information or provide warnings about the risks of excessive, serious, and uncontrollable bleeding.
  • The manufacturer did not establish treatment methods or protocol for individuals who experience serious bleeding as a result of the medication.
  • The company did not adequately establish variable factors or research the safety of the medication when recommending dosage.
  • The manufacturer intentionally concealed facts about Pradaxa’s dangers.
  • The company failed in duty to warn consumers of dangers.

Summary

I was involved in a vehicle accident August 15, 2012. When the accident happened I called another large firm in the Atlanta area. Eventually my case was referred to Mr. Jason Schneider. Once Mr. Schneider received my case everything began to change and I felt like he was working in my favor. Mr. Schneider did an excellent job of dealing with the insurance company and getting them to pay what was owed to me. Mr. Schneider helped me when my situation became an emergency. He made sure I understood what would happen with my case financially if I went ahead with the emergency surgery. The surgery would basically take all the money that the insurance would pay and I may still owe some money. In the end I was surprised to receive an email a year later saying that I had a checking waiting for me at Mr. Schneider’s office. I had completely accepted the fact that I would not receive anything but my back would be somewhat better. If you are searching for an attorney who is going to work in your favor and make sure you know what’s going on with your case I suggest you call Mr. Jason Schneider right now.
