Numerous Xarelto lawsuits have been pending for years, and the plaintiffs bringing these cases have succeeded in their efforts to have a few of these cases tried in bellwether trials. Since most of the cases are extremely similar and allege the same injuries against the same defendants, trying just a few of the cases should help resolve all of the lawsuits more efficiently than trying all of them individually in separate jurisdictions. However, the defendants in these lawsuits, Bayer AG, Johnson and Johnson, Inc. and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, are now strategically trying to limit the lawsuits that get into the bellwether trials to a few options from just a few states.even though they may not be indicative of the majority of the Xarelto lawsuits that have been filed. The bellwether trials are slated to take place from February through May of 2017, with additional dates to be announced later.
Allegations in Xarelto Lawsuits
The number of Xarelto lawsuits that are pending against Bayer, J&J, and Janssen is approaching 2000 and continues to rise. These lawsuits have similar allegations including that the plaintiffs suffered injuries as a result of taking the blood thinner Xarelto. The alleged injuries include bleeding complications, and some lawsuits have even alleged that using the anticoagulant has resulted in death from bleeding out. Xarelto is especially dangerous because, unlike other blood thinners, it does not have an antidote that is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration. In addition to alleging that the plaintiffs were injured as the result of taking Xarelto, the lawsuits also allege that the drug’s manufacturers knew or should have known of their drug’s health risks but still promoted the drug despite these risks.
Support for Lawsuit Allegations
Studies have linked Xarelto to bleeding complications, and the FDA has also issued a warning about Xarelto’s serious bleeding side effects. According to a recent article published by JS Online, Bayer Pharma AG, Johnson & Johnson, Inc., and Janssen Pharmaceuticals made contributions of up to $40 million medical associations over the course of just three years in order to promote Xarelto even though there is no FDA-approved antidote. After these contributions were made, Xarelto became a popular blood thinner even though its competitors do have FDA-approved antidotes.
