Lawsuit: Drug Maker Failed to Warn Patients About Pradaxa Risks
A product liability lawsuit alleges that Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceutical Inc. is liable for the death of the plaintiff’s husband, who suffered an uncontrollable bleeding episode while taking the company’s anticoagulant drug Pradaxa. The Madison County Record explains that Pradaxa lacked an antidote when the plaintiff’s husband was on the medication, and according to the lawsuit, Boehringer Ingelheim failed to warn patients about the associated risks. The plaintiff contends that the drug was unreasonably dangerous as a result.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff’s husband suffered a cerebral hemorrhage when he fell and struck his head while using Pradaxa. Although he received medical attention, his internal bleeding couldn’t be stopped, since Boehringer Ingelheim has not developed an antidote at that time and since Vitamin K cannot reverse the anticoagulant effects of Pradaxa. The plaintiff is now seeking compensation for her husband’s suffering as well as her own losses, the website reported.
