Xarelto Lawsuits

BCA is investigating lawsuits regarding the blood thinner Xarelto. There are reports of the dangerous side effect of uncontrolled bleeding while taking this medication. There are lawsuits being filed in the United States that claim both Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals hid information on the dangerous side effects of Xarelto. Some of the various side effects include Blood Clots, Rectal Bleeding, Intestinal Bleeding and in some cases Death by uncontrolled bleeding. The FDA approved Xarelto in 2011, however in 2013 issued a warning letter to Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals warning that print advertising minimized the dangerous Xarelto side effects. A common side of effect of blood thinners is bleeding, so additional studies my need to be conducted to confirm the increased risk of Xarelto. There have been a handful of lawsuits already filed for failure to warn. If enough Xarelto lawsuits are filed all over the nation, it could be possible that a Xarelto Class Action lawsuit or Xarelto MDL could be created in the future.

When Xarelto was first introduced to the market, it was said to be a better option that the blood thinner brand Coumadin. Xarelto was superior because unlike Coumadin, patients didn't need regular blood monitoring. The problem with Xarelto is that unlike Coumadin, Xarelto has no current antidote. So if a patient does experience serious complications like uncontrollable bleeding there is no way to reverse it. The bleeding will continue until the drug is completely flushed out of the body. This can result in patients dying from Xarelto. It has been reported between June 2011 and June 2012, the FDA received over one thousand "adverse event" reports and at least 65 deaths. The reported Xarelto lawsuits are seeking both compensatory and punitive damages. The Xarelto lawsuits claim that manufactures should have properly warned the doctors and thus the patients about the serious Xarelto side effects.

Xarelto Side Effects

Xarelto Lawsuits Consolidated in MDL

Xarelto Lawsuits are starting to become consolidated into a Xarelto Multi District Litigation. First the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi district District Litigation ordered over 20 cases to federal court in Louisiana. Then 80 Xarelto lawsuits were transferred in Philadelphia to the Complex Litigation Xarelto Litigation Mass Tort Program. The FDA received over 1,000 adverse events reports from Xarelto. This consolidation is not a Xarelto Class Action, but the creation of Xarelto MDL. There are reports that thousands of Xarelto Lawsuits could be filed in this program. Brent Coon and Associates has extensive experience in mass tort programs. Brent Coon and Associates was named “Mass Tort Litigation Department of the Year” by Texas Lawyer for it's work on the BP Oil Spill Litigation.
