Pradaxa (dabigatran) is a dangerous and sometimes deadly drug. The dangers of Pradaxa were downplayed by its maker before the drug was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and now the agency is conducting a post-market safety study. If you have been harmed by Pradaxa or lost a loved one to this deadly drug, our Pradaxa attorneys can help you get the compensation you need.
Failure to Warn
Pradaxa injury and wrongful death claims are based on the drug company’s failure to warn patients and doctors of the dangers of the drug. Even the FDA says that Pradaxa may be more dangerous than it believed when it approved the drug based on a study sponsored by Pradaxa maker Boehringer Ingelheim.
Compensation for Pradaxa Injuries an Wrongful Death
Pradaxa injuries can be permanently disabling or fatal. Serious uncontrolled bleeding, stroke, and heart attack are among the dangerous side effects Pradaxa can have. Those who survive these events can be preeminently injured, and may require 24 hour care for the rest of their lives. Even those who recover require extensive emergency treatment to pull through the initial event.

- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Long term care
- Custodial care
- Home health care
- End of life care
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Special equipment and home alterations to accommodate disability
