What does the FDA Pradaxa bleeding warning say?
The FDA issued a Pradaxa bleeding warning in 2011, stating that severe bleeding has been found to be more common than the drug company had projected through initial safety testing. This fact coupled with the reality that there is no reliable way to stop Pradaxa bleeding once it begins, led the FDA to strengthen the language of the bleeding warning on the Pradaxa label in 2012, as well as to launch ongoing investigation. Pradaxa is still approved for use in AFib patients in the United States.
If there is already a settlement in some Pradaxa bleeding lawsuits, is it too late to file one myself?
It is true that a settlement of $650 million was reached in the first batch of Pradaxa lawsuits that were consolidated in U.S. District Court through multidistrict litigation. And the answer is yes, you may still file a Pradaxa lawsuit at this time. Contact an attorney today to ensure you are still eligible.
Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
The majority of our drug cases are handled as a MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
What is the time frame for filing Pradaxa bleeding lawsuit?
While Pradaxa lawsuits are time sensitive, people who developed health problems from taking Pradaxa will still be able to file a Pradaxa lawsuit now. To ask an attorney handling Pradaxa claims about relevant time limits for your case, contact our firm.
