Xarelto Lawsuits

Legal Answers is now investigating Xarelto Lawsuits after reports of an increased risk of uncontrollable bleeding from the use of this drug. Plaintiff's are filing lawsuits claiming that both Bayer and Janssen mislead or didn't inform the public of the dangers of Xarelto. The FDA sent a letter to pharmaceutical companies claiming that the print advertising for Xarelto failed to effectively warn about the dangerous Xarelto side effects. When Xarelto was introduced it was advertised as a better alternative to Coumadin. The problem with Xarelto compared to Coumadin, is that Xarelto has no antidote. If a Xarelto patient suffers from uncontrollable bleeding, there is no way to reverse it until Xarelto is completely out of the body. While FDA did send a warning letter, there has been no word on if there will be a full scale FDA Xarelto Recall.

Xarelto Lawsuits Filed

Various Xarelto lawsuits have already been filed in the U.S. A woman in Texas filed a lawsuit seeking $10 million dollars after she suffered uncontrollable bleeding while taking Xarelto. Another woman in Florida also filed a Xarelto lawsuit for wrongful death. Her husband began taking Xarelto in 2012 and suffered subdural hemorrhage. He was admitted to the hospital but doctors were unable to stop the bleeding. He died a few days later. It's possible that if these patients were properly warned that Xarelto has no antidote, it could have saved these people's lives. Pharmaceutical companies have declined to disclose how many Xarelto lawsuits have currently been filed. With new Xarelto being filed there has been the creation of a new Xarelto MDL. There are reportedly over 85 Xarelto lawsuits pending litigation.

Xarelto Side Effects

The most serious side effect of Xarelto is uncontrolled bleeding. If this bleeding in near a major organ, the flow of blood to that organ can be effected and cause death. Xarelto is a blood thinner, which means in prevents against blotting. However, there is no antidote for Xarelto. If a patient starts to have uncontrolable bleeding there is no way to reverse the medication. A patient must wait until the drug leaves the body. This has caused patients to suffer serious medical issues and in some cases death. Xarelto costs approx $3,000 per year for the patients. Other side effects of Xarelto include

  • Abdominal Bleeding
