Xarelto Causing Uncontrolled Bleeding Lawsuits

A severe complication associated with Xarelto use is the risk of uncontrolled internal bleeding near vital organs in the body. Xarelto works by preventing the blood from clotting so as to reduce the risk of stroke, however because the blood cannot clot, the bleeding inside the body cannot be controlled. Currently, there is no treatment for the bleeding caused by Xarelto. The drug must exit the system before the bleeding will cease.

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.
