In recent years, Exjade has become the subject of controversy as researchers have uncovered multiple serious drug side effects that were not disclosed by drug manufacturer Novartis when the drug was brought to market in 2005.
Although consumer lawsuits have only been filed in the last year, a major settlement between the U.S. Federal Government and Novartis Pharmaceuticals has been reached for a reported $390 million in response to claims that Novartis offered illegal kickbacks to medical professionals to refrain from disclosing side effects and promote Exjade prescriptions.
The announcement of this settlement led to consumers coming forward in large numbers to file their own lawsuits. In Novartis paying $390 million to settle the aforementioned allegations, consumers believe that they can prove they were exposed to health risks that were hid from them by Novartis.
This belief has served as the basis for lawsuits being filed against Novartis Pharmaceuticals as consumers are seeking to claim financial compensation for the various medical complications they suffered due to being prescribed Exjade.
All those who believe their Exjade prescription led to gastrointestinal complications can contact an attorney to begin pursuing legal action against Novartis Pharmaceuticals.
How Do I File A Exjade Gastrointestinal Lawsuit?
There are several factors that go into filing an Exjade gastrointestinal lawsuit, but the first is proving that you experienced one or more of the following within 48 hours of using Exjade:
- Gastrointestinal ulceration
- Gastrointestinal hemmorrhage
- Gastrointestinal perforation
- Severe skin rash/reaction
- Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS)
- Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN)
- Erythema Multiforme
An attorney will work to confirm that one of these complications arose from Exjade use by ordering your medical records and having them examined by a trained medical team.
If it is confirmed that your situation meets this criteria and falls within the necessary state deadlines, you will be able to pursue a lawsuit against Novartis Pharmaceuticals.
While the client will be heavily involved by offering their input and voicing their specific needs for the lawsuit, it will be the responsibility of the attorney to properly navigate the legal hurdles the precede the filing of an Exjade lawsuit.
What Are Exjade Lawsuit Deadlines?
There are several legal deadlines that plaintiffs and attorneys must be aware of in order to successfully file a strong Exjade dangerous drug lawsuit against Novartis Pharmaceuticals.

If any deadline is missed, a victim will be immediately deemed ineligible to pursue any legal action or claim ownership in any future settlement offers.
