NEW ORLEANS — A women from Arkansas recently filed a complaint alleging the manufacturer of the prescription drug, Xarelto, knew about severe bleeding side effects, but failed to adequately warn consumers of the dangers, according to a report by the Louisiana Record.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana on April 7.

The plaintiff named Jansen Pharmaceuticals and its subsidiaries as well as Johnson & Johnson and Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceutical subsidiaries as being responsible for damages caused by Xarelto.

The plaintiff allegedly took Xarelto from February 11, 2013 to August 5, 2014 with four major instances of severe bleeding occurring as a result.

Due to the use of Xarelto, life-threatening bleeding as well as other permanent injuries have occurred resulting in physical pain, mental anguish, and medical expenses.

Jansen Pharmaceutical and all related parties are alleged to have developed and taken the drug to market without properly investigating, researching, and warning consumers of side-effects. In addition to these claims, the plaintiff reports several additional instances of negligence in responsibilities.
