Pradaxa: adverse events

the plaintiff claims that he was prescribed Pradaxa for long-term maintenance and in 2011, he suffered lower gastrointestinal bleeding

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 10, 2014

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and now, can actively provide an expert opinion in view of the recent news on alleged Pradaxa Side Effects and Pradaxa lawsuits.

As Forbes published on January 3, the US FDA plans to perform a large new safety assessment of Pradaxa (dagibatran). Pradaxa, manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, is a new oral anticoagulant mainly used as a blood thinner for patients who are at risk for stroke or atrial fibrillation. The study will “assess systematically the rates of bleeding and thromboembolic outcomes associated with the use of dabigatran and warfarin for patients with atrial fibrillation using data from the FDA Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database (MSDD).”

On November 20, a new lawsuit was filed by a man in Missouri Eastern District Court (case no. 4:2013cv02335) alleging that he suffered gastrointestinal bleeding from Pradaxa. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that he was prescribed Pradaxa for long-term maintenance and in 2011, he suffered lower gastrointestinal bleeding.

Court data, updated on December 16, by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation reveal that there are 1,883 cases pending in the Pradaxa MDL (MDL No. 2385, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois).

Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in cases of severe complications, allegedly from Pradaxa. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Pradaxa lawsuits. "For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

As Bloomberg published* on December 10, a US District Judge ordered Boehringer to pay $931,000 as a fine for withholding documents related to the Pradaxa Multidistrict Litigation.

AttorneyOne.com has further information on Pradaxa lawsuits including how to get in contact with legal counsel.
