New Jersey Man Files Pradaxa Lawsuit Over Undisclosed Bleeding Side Effects
By John Curran
Boehringer Ingelheim's legal staff may not get a break any time soon. A New Jersey man, John Fontana, is just the latest plaintiff to use a Pradaxa internal bleeding class action lawsuit lawyer to file a claim against the company. It is unclear whether or not Mr. Fontana's case has been moved to the Pradaxa multi-district litigation yet.
Fontana argues that the drug caused uncontrollable Pradaxa internal bleeding side effects, and that the manufacturer did not adequately warn of the risk. It is a common complaint of hundreds of Pradaxa lawsuit plaintiffs already. The Pradaxa lawsuit MDL judge, David Herndon, expects enough cases that there is a steering committee of attorneys, and a simplified form to streamline the many cases covering Pradaxa brain hemorrhage side effects.
It is becoming increasingly unclear why any doctor would even use the anticoagulant. While some doctors appreciate the fact that there is no need for frequent blood testing like with the anticoagulant warfarin, Pradaxa internal bleeding side effects stand out. One study found that adverse side effects were seven times higher than for warfarin, a drug that many medical professionals have used for decades. It can be annoying because of interactions with other medications, but they are at least known to doctors who had been hopeful about Pradaxa.
In addition, warfarin's side effect profile does not include anything that does not respond to treatment. Pradaxa brain hemorrhage side effects are usually fatal because doctors have to perform emergency dialysis, something not always possible even at top hospitals. It has led to dozens of claims by Pradaxa sudden death class action lawsuit lawyers. More than 200 people have died as a result of Pradaxa internal bleeding since 2010.
