The first three dangerous drug litigation cases involving the drug Pradaxa were filed in federal court this week involving instances of injury and death. Case filed in Louisiana, Tennessee and Kentucky will likely represent a larger class of individuals if there are continued reports of injury and death associated with the drug Pradaxa.

Pradaxa, produced by Boehringer Ingleheim, is indicated to reduce the risk of stroke in patients suffering from AFib or atrial fibrillation. Patients suffering from atrial fibrillation normally require a blood-thinning agent such as warfarin, which for over 60 years was the only Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medicine until Pradaxa entered the market. However, recent reports of fatal bleeding in patients taking the drug Pradaxa have prompted the FDA to require a minor label change.

In November 2011, there were over 260 confirmed fatalities with patients taking Pradaxa and suffering from internal hemorrhaging. The number of side effects and the amount of deaths associated with the prescription medication has prompted labeling updates in the United States, Japan, Australia, and Europe. In January 2012, the FDA encouraged Boehringer Ingelheim to added additional information to their package insert; however, the package still does not carry a "black box warning" and there has been no FDA recall to date.
