Blood thinner lawsuits are now being filed in a newly-established litigation that could be resolved in numerous Xarelto settlements. Individuals who may have sustained a life-threatening episode of internal bleeding, as well as a stroke, deep vein thrombosis and/or pulmonary embolism would be wise to dial our Firm today to begin the process of pursuing a case that could eventually conclude with a substantial compensation award for damages that were allegedly caused by the medication.

xarelto lawsuit settlementsIn December 2014, the first Xarelto lawsuits were transferred to a federal proceeding in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana. This was just three years after the drug received clearance for sale to patients with atrial fibrillation, as well as those who may be susceptible to blood clots following a joint replacement surgery, and clots that are symptomatic of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.

Since Xarelto’s approval in 2011, the blood-thinning medication has been included in numerous adverse event reports filed in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s adverse event report database, however. In the first quarter of 2013 alone, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices reported that 680 complaints had been filed. This number was significant, the agency reported, because it represented the first time it surpassed those associated with Pradaxa, a similar medication.

Xarelto Settlements

As the nationwide Xarelto litigation begins to grow, it is likely that many plaintiffs are hoping for a resolution of their claims by the drug’s manufacturers, Bayer Healthcare and the Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals. In this case, plaintiffs would receive compensation for out-of-pocket medical expenses, lost wages and other damages that allegedly resulted from the following Xarelto injuries:

  • Spinal and Epidural Hematoma
  • Intracranial Hemorrhage (Bleeding in the Brain)
  • Stroke
  • Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage (Stomach Bleeding)
  • Adrenal Bleeding
  • Blood Clots, Including Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism

Whether or not Xarelto lawsuits that allege these injuries are settled may depend on a number of factors that may include but are not limited to:

  • The length and severity of Xarelto complications
  • The physical and mental health ramifications the patient was caused
  • The present and future pain and mental suffering the patient may incur as a result of the drug
  • How much was paid in medical expenses that followed Xarelto use
  • Losses suffered by family members who lost a loved one to Xarelto complications
