St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
The Onder Law Firm has announced that statistics released by the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi District Litigation this month reveal that Pradaxa internal bleeding lawsuits (MDL No. 2385, United States District Court, Southern District of Illinois) are mounting rapidly against the German pharmaceutical company, Boehringer Ingleheim. As of July 10, 2013, 1172 individual Pradaxa lawsuits had been filed; that number rose to 1643 in the October 17, 2013 report, representing a 40% increase in Pradaxa lawsuits a mere three months.
Pradaxa lawsuits have been filed as Multi-District Litigation (MDL) suits. This is a procedure designed to expedite the processing of large numbers of separate suits filed for similar grievances. This is not the same as a class action lawsuit, which is typically used to resolve less serious complaints. Severe internal bleeding and death are the subjects of the Pradaxa Products Liability Litigation.
Currently under investigation by the FDA and European public health entities, Pradaxa has been linked to a higher-than-expected risk for severe internal bleeding incidents and deaths. Preparations are under way for an August 11, 2014 start for a bellweather Pradaxa internal bleeding lawsuit trial.
The lawyers at Onder, Shelton, O'Leary & Peterson working on the Pradaxa lawsuit are offering a free case review with no further obligation to the families of persons who experienced severe internal bleeding after using Pradaxa.
