This page helps people affected by Pradaxa learn more about its devastating side effects and how they may be compensated for their injuries and losses.

1,000+ Deaths Connected to Pradaxa

After only two years on the market, Pradaxa was linked to more than 500 deaths. This number now exceeds one thousand.

Initially approved by the FDA in 2010, Pradaxa was marketed as an alternative to the popular blood thinner Warfarin. However, despite the drug maker’s claims of a safer drug, studies have shown Pradaxa's link to brain hemorrhaging, gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding
and even death.

Pradaxa is required to carry the FDA’s strongest warning, a black box warning designed to call attention to serious or life-threatening risks associated with the drug.

SEE THE FDA WARNING

The FDA received over 7,000 reports of life-threatening injuries linked to Pradaxa just two years after its release.

Pradaxa's Expensive Antidote Comes Too Late

Praxbind is an antidote to Pradaxa’s anticoagulation effects that was granted accelerated FDA approval in October of 2015. Although it is effective at reversing the Pradaxa's harmful effects leading to internal bleeding and more, many have criticized Boehringer Ingelheim for creating the drug years too late.

By the time Praxbind was released, thousands of people had already suffered life-threatening injuries or worse from Pradaxa. On top of this, the wholesale price for 
just a single dose of Praxbind costs a staggering $3,500.

In 2014, Pradaxa's makers paid $650 million to victims of serious injuries from the drug in over 4,000 lawsuits.

Boehringer Ingelheim Blamed for Negligence

Boehringer Ingelheim, Pradaxa's makers, had a responsibility to perform thorough testing and notify the FDA and the public of the full extent of Pradaxa's potential risks. Thousands of affected individuals and their families are now taking legal action against the pharmaceutical company for their damages and losses.

Our law firm seeks to prove that Pradaxa's makers, Boehringer Ingelheim:

Were negligent in manufacturing a potentially harmful drug.
Failed to properly test Pradaxa before releasing it to the public.
Knew or should have known about the serious side effects associated with the drug.
Failed to warn the public, the FDA and doctors about the drug’s potential health risks.
