More lawsuits have reportedly been added to the Pradaxa litigation against drug maker Boehringer Ingelheim, even after it agreed to pay more than $650 million in settlements in 2014 to resolve allegations of severe bleeding complications caused by the anticoagulant. Marketed since 2010 to patients with atrial fibrillation as a means of minimizing their chances of strokes, severe and potentially fatal bleeding has been alleged in Pradaxa lawsuits. It has also been alleged that the drug maker failed to disclose risks of severe bleeding associated with the use of Pradaxa.

Lawsuits: Pradaxa Causes Severe Bleeding
Many of the lawsuits against the makers of Pradaxa allege that the complications patients suffered after taking it could have been prevented or treated effectively if the drug manufacturer included detailed warnings about potential severe bleeding side effects. Additional complaints allege that a reversal agent should have been identified before the drug was released to the market.
Patients Who Are Injured May Be Eligible for Compensation
