What is the Pradaxa Lawsuit?
Pradaxa (dabigatran) is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) manufactured by the German pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim. The FDA approved Pradaxa for the prevention of strokes in atrial fibrillation (a-fib) patients in October 2010.Prior to Pradaxa’s approval, warfarin had cornered the market on blood thinners for 60 years. But unlike warfarin, Pradaxa does not require rigid blood monitoring. By 2012, roughly 725,000 U.S. patients had taken Pradaxa.
Unfortunately, until 2015, there was no way to reverse a severe bleeding event brought about by Pradaxa. (Warfarin-related events could be stopped by vitamin K.) This resulted in thousands of adverse events and hundreds of fatalities from uncontrollable bleeding.
By February 2014, Pradaxa had been linked to more than 1,000 deaths. That May, Boehringer Ingelheim agreed to pay $650 million to settle all of its 4,000 lawsuits. (Eighteen months prior, in October 2012, the company had paid $95 million to the U.S. government to settle a whistleblower case over its off-label marketing of several drugs.)
In July 2014, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published a report alleging that Boehringer Ingelheim withheld crucial data that showed monitoring Pradaxa patients’ plasma levels could improve the safety of the drug. (via: classaction. com)
Is there a deadline to bring a Pradaxa Lawsuit?
Every potential defective drug lawsuit, such as Pradaxa, has a statute of limitations,which places a deadline on the amount of time that someone must file a lawsuit. Every state has their own statute of limitationswhich varies across the country. Statutes of limitations apply in all civil cases, including personal injury cases and product liability cases. Most defective drug and pharmaceutical claims fall into one of these two categories, including Pradaxa lawsuits. It is in your best interest to have your claim investigated immediately so you know your applicable deadline.
