Xarelto Recall Information

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not yet issued a recall for Xarelto despite the fact that the drug has been linked to dangerous side-effects. Xarelto is still being prescribed to thousands of patients to help prevent strokes from occurring. Since the drug was fast-tracked for approval by the FDA, there remains a concern that the complete safety profile of the drug may not be entirely known.

Although Xarelto has not yet been recalled, you can still pursue a lawsuit if you or someone you care about has been harmed by the drug. If you suffered from complications arising from Xarelto, you may be entitled to compensation. Settlements include compensation for your pain and suffering, disability, lost income, medical expenses, and psychological harm.

Our dangerous drug attorneys can help if you or someone you care about was harmed by Xarelto. Lawsuits have been filed against the drug maker by both patients and their families seeking compensation for injuries caused by this dangerous drug. You may be entitled to a settlement.

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.
