Xarelto Causing Blood Clot Lawsuits
Johnson & Johnson’s blood thinning drug Xarelto has been used by doctors and surgeons heavily since 2011. The anticoagulant is responsible for reducing the risk of blood clots, which can cause deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or strokes. Unfortunately, there have been many life threatening side-effects associated with Xarelto use. Some of these side-effects include uncontrollable internal bleeding and vision loss. More recently, however, Xarelto has been found to increase the risk of blood clots in patients, which is the condition it is advertised to prevent.
Blood clots have been found to occur around the brain if a patient is undergoing spinal tap or receiving spinal anesthesia. Many younger patients who were prescribed Xarelto formed severe blood clots after knee or hip replacement surgery.
Xarelto Blood Clot Lawsuits

What are the Criteria for Filing a Xarelto Lawsuit?
Lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Corp. over the blood thinner Xarelto have been consolidated in Louisiana federal court. Xarelto has been linked to serious side effects including internal bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, brain bleed and death.
The Xarelto lawsuits come on the heels of the recent $650 million Pradaxa settlement. Researchers linked Pradaxa, also a blood thinning medication, to more than 500 deaths.
Xarelto blood thinner litigation has been consolidated before U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in the Eastern District of Louisiana, who presided over suits against Merck & Co. over its medication Vioxx. The Vioxx litigation resulted in a $4.85 billion settlement in 2007.
In order to file a Xarelto lawsuit, the patient must have suffered serious hemorrhage, internal bleeding, or death as a result of blood being unable to clot due to the drug.
