Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 10, 2013
The Pradaxa lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced law firm representing the victims of defective drugs, announce that they have filed a Pradaxa lawsuit on behalf of an Iowa man whose death was allegedly caused by Pradaxa bleeding side effects. The Pradaxa lawsuit, which was filed by the Decedent’s son in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois, on May 29th, alleges that Boehiring Ingelheim, the manufacturer of Pradaxa, failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of Pradaxa bleeding, including the fact that no effective agent to reverse the anticoagulation effects of Pradaxa currently exists.

Pradaxa was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. By 2011, the FDA had received 3,781 reports of serious adverse events associated with Pradaxa, including more than 540 reports of Pradaxa deaths. According to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), by that time the FDA had received more reports of bleeding, kidney failure, and stroke for Pradaxa than for any of the 800 other drugs the group monitors.

According to the Pradaxa lawsuit filed by Wright & Schulte LLC, the Decedent named in the complaint began using Pradaxa in July 2011. On October 10, 2012, he suffered a subdural hematoma, and ultimately died of complications related to that injury on October 29, 2012. The Complaint alleges that the uncontrollable and excessive bleeding experienced by the Decedent was worsened by his use of Pradaxa. Among other things, the lawsuit points out that the doctors treating him noted that the Decedent’s use of Pradaxa was significant, and was likely the cause of his uncontrollable bleeding.
The Pradaxa lawsuit alleges that the severe personal injuries, physical pain and mental anguish suffered by the Decedent were the direct and proximate result of his use of Pradaxa. The Complaint charges Boehringer Ingelheim with, among other things, two counts of Strict Products Liability, including Failure to Warn and Defective Design, Negligence, Negligent Misrepresentation and/or Fraud, and Breach of Express and Implied Warranty. The lawsuit also seeks damages for Wrongful Death, as well as Loss of Consortium on behalf of the Decedent’s son, and Punitive Damages.
