Xarelto Catastrophic Bleeding Problems? Xarelto Bleeding Lawsuit

Bleeding is a known side effect associated with anticoagulants, and Xarelto is more dangerous than older blood thinners according to some experts, because no antidote exists to reverse its blood-thinning effects.

In the event of a bleeding emergency, patients may be at risk for irreversible bleeding problems, including life-threatening brain and gastrointestinal hemorrhaging.

Xarelto Injury Lawsuits

In these Xarelto bleeding injury lawsuits, patients are seeking compensation from Bayer and Johnson and Johnson's subsidiary Janssen for past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and, in cases of death, funeral expenses.

Also, they are seeking punitive damages, which are awarded to punish the defendant for its bad acts of selling a potentially dangerous drug without an antidote.

Over 2,200 Filed Lawsuits

Bayer and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. are exposed to over 2,200 Xarelto lawsuits claiming that Xarelto is dangerous and defective. According to the Xarelto victims, older anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin, Coumadin) their blood-thinning effects can be reversed using vitamin K, but there is no antidote available for Xarelto.

Because of this lack of antidote, doctors have no sure fire treatment for Xarelto bleeding in an emergency. Plaintiffs in the lawsuits claim serious and fatal injuries, including cerebral (brain) hemorrhaging and gastrointestinal bleeds, from use of Xarelto.

Xarelto Claims
  • The manufacturers of Xarelto pushed Xarelto as a superior anticoagulant despite studies finding higher rates of gastrointestinal bleeding and transfusions in Xarelto users.
  • The manufacturers of Xarelto continue to market Xarelto as a safe anticoagulant option.
  • Doctors are not trained in methods to stabilize and treat a Xarelto patient in the event of a serious bleeding complication.
  • Xarelto patients are not adequately warned of the health risks of suffering a fatal bleeding event.

Xarelto is linked to serious bleeding complications, excessive blood loss, intracranial hemorrhaging, eye bleeding, stomach bleeding, and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Multidistrict Litigation Trial Dates Set

Since December 2014, all federal product liability lawsuits filed against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson over the bleeding side effects of Xarelto have been centralized and consolidated before U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in the Eastern District of Louisiana as part of an MDL, or multidistrict litigation.

Lawsuits against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson are consolidated in two courts, a multidistrict litigation court in the Eastern District of Louisiana and a mass tort litigation court in Philadelphia.

The MDL in Louisiana contains over 2,200 federal lawsuits, and the mass tort in Philadelphia contains more than 400 state lawsuits.

Judge Fallon set a series of four bellwether trials to go before juries in the Spring of 2017. The first two trials will be held in the Eastern District of Louisiana, on February 6 and March 13, 2017. The third trial will be held in Mississippi on April 24, 2017 and the fourth trial will be held in Texas on May 30, 2017.

The cases that will go before juries on these dates will be pulled from a pool of 40 lawsuits to be selected in January 2016.
