Xarelto® is a blood thinner prescribed to reduce blood clots. This is a new classification of blood thinners introduced to the market in 2011.
Xarelto® lawsuits claim that the manufacturers of Xarelto® failed to warn physicians and patients that the medication can cause irreversible internal bleeding. There may be substitute drugs that can be better for reducing clots without putting a patient’s life at risk.
The lawsuits also claim that the manufacturer of Xarelto® have failed to provide physicians with clear instructions in regard to whether a patient is qualified to take Xarelto®. Patients may have been misinformed regarding how long they should take it and when they need to stop taking it. The manufacturers have failed to include all the problems that a patient can face while she or he is going through the screening process.
Xarelto® lawsuit lawyers claim the following:
- Janssen® was negligent during the time of manufacturing of the drug.
- Xarelto® is defective, unsafe and unreasonably dangerous.
- Janssen® and Bayer® did not adequately test the drug before marketing it.
- They have failed to warn the physicians about the potential risk of uncontrolled bleeding.
Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Janssen Pharmaceutical® (the manufacturer of Xarelto®) and Bayer Healthcare® (the marketer of the drug), claiming that they have failed to warn physicians and patients about the increased risk of irreversible internal bleeding which can be dangerous and life-threatening.
Some Xarelto® lawsuit lawyers argue that Janssen® and Bayer® marketed the drug as a “one size fits all” type pill. Lawyers have claimed this is not true.
