Xarelto Causing Brain Bleeds
Xarelto brain bleed lawsuits are being filed for patients who took this dangerous blood thinner medication. Xarelto (rivaroxaban), is a blood thinner used to prevent and treat clots that form in the leg, and clots that form in the lung known as pulmonary embolism. It also helps to reduce the risk of strokes in people who suffer from atrial fibrillation, a condition where the heart does not beat properly.
There have been increasing complaints about Xarelto causing brain bleeds. This is because the drug prevents clots from developing when there is an injury to a blood vessel in the brain. As a result, clots do not form to stop an existing bleed. If a blood vessel in the brain ruptures, the blood hemorrhages out in the area. Xarelto can actually further increase the risk of a cerebral hemorrhage.
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.
