No. However, there is a centralized federal litigation that you may be able to join if you file a lawsuit.
Collen A. Clark is nationally-recognized as a class action attorney. However, The Clark Firm, LLP is not currently pursuing justice for our clients through a Pradaxa class action lawsuit because there are no certified Pradaxa class actions at this time, and it is unlikely that there will be any.
However, we are now accepting individual personal injury lawsuits. You may be eligible to join a centralized Multi-District Litigation (MDL) that involves more than 1,250 Pradaxa lawsuits.
Personal injury lawsuit damages may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Future care or rehabilitation
- Lost income or employment
- Permanent disability
- Decreased quality of life
- Loss of consortium with spouse
- Punitive damages against Boehringer Ingelheim
- And more
What is a class action?
Class action lawsuits are a special type of litigation in which many plaintiffs with similar claims join together to file a lawsuit. All of the claims are consolidated, the entire group is usually represented by one law firm, and one plaintiff is chosen to be the “class representative.” If compensation is awarded, the damages are shared among the members of the class.
Pradaxa Lawsuits Centralized in Federal Litigation
You may be surprised to learn that class action lawsuits are not normally used to resolve a large number of lawsuits involving individual drug injury claims. Instead, all Pradaxa lawsuits have been organized in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois:
As the MDL proceeds, judges will select “bellwether” cases that are individual Pradaxa lawsuits involving injuries that are similar to other cases. If these cases are awarded compensation in trial, the jury’s decision will help lawyers negotiate settlements in hundreds of other cases.
What is the difference between an MDL and a class action?
The Multi-District Litigation (MDL) process is similar to a class action, but there are some important differences:
- Individual lawsuits in an MDL remain independent.
- If a lawsuit is not resolved at the federal level, it can return to the state court where it was originally filed.
- Individual plaintiffs retain their own lawyer to fight for the maximum amount of compensation they deserve. In a class action, one lawyer may represent thousands of people.
- If compensation is awarded to a plaintiff, it does not need to be shared with other members of a class action.

- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Cerebral hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain)
