Xarelto Eye Bleeding Lawsuits
Bleeding is one of the most serious side-effects associated with Xarelto. Since the drug is designed to stop blood from clotting, even minor injuries can be a serious cause for alarm. Recent studies have suggested that Xarelto may be responsible for serious eye hemorrhaging occurring in elderly patients.
In June 2015, the Journal of the American Medical Association first reported findings of eye bleeds from Xarelto. It was discovered that elderly patients transitioning from the traditional blood thinner Warfarin, to Xarelto, were experiencing vitreous hemorrhaging. This is a type of bleed that occurs between the lens and the retina of the eye, and can cause pain and vision loss. Our legal team is currently investigating these new claims of severe eye bleeding to determine if additional claims will develop based on this side-effect.
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.
