If a medical complication is developed within 48 hours of Exjade use and is the cause of an Exjade users death, the surviving estate members may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of their deceased loved one.
For a death during Exjade use to qualify for a wrongful death lawsuit your loved one must have experienced one of the following:
- Gastrointestinal Ulceration
- Gastrointestinal Hemmorhage
- Gastrointestinal Perforation
- Severe Skin Rash/Reaction
- Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS)
- Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEX)
The lawsuit filing process for an Exjade wrongful death lawsuit is very similar to the process for a standard Exjade dangerous drug lawsuit. However, all medical examinations will work to prove cause and timeline of death with possible settlements being awarded to the surviving estate members for damages caused by their loved ones death.
Have Exjade Related Deaths Been Reported?
For nearly a decade, the prevalent death risk of Exjade use has been known with warnings from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other sources directed to the public.
In 2009, The FDA issued an “Early Communication About An Ongoing Safety Review Of Deferasirox (Exjade)” which warned of a major risk of consumer developed kidney or liver failure and gastrointestinal bleeding that all may prove fatal.
Additionally, in the same year the Institute for Safe Medical Practices placed Exjade in the number 2 slot for their list of “Most Frequently Suspected Drugs in Reported Patient Deaths.”
Some of the major conditions that have reportedly been connected with Exjade related deaths include:
