Why Are Lawsuits Being Filed?
Bayer and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. are facing several Xarelto lawsuits alleging that the drug is hazardous and defective. The plaintiffs claim that, unlike standard anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin, Coumadin) whose blood-thinning effects can be reversed using vitamin K, there is no antidote available for Xarelto. Because of this, the lawsuits claim, doctors have no effective indicates of stopping Xarelto users from bleeding inside the event of an emergency. Plaintiffs in the lawsuits allege severe and fatal injuries, including cerebral hemorrhaging and gastrointestinal bleeds, from use of the drug.
In addition to these risks, lawsuits against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals are alleging:
The manufacturers of Xarelto marketed the drug as a superior inside the field of anticoagulants despite studies finding higher rates of gastrointestinal (GI tract) bleeding and transfusions in xarelto nosebleed users than users of certain competitors.
The makers of the drug continue to market Xarelto as a secure anticoagulant option.
Doctors and medical staff were not properly made aware of methods to stabilize and treat a Xarelto user in the occasion of a bleeding complication.
Users of Xarelto were not adequately warned of the health risks of suffering a fatal bleeding event.
Xarelto is linked to critical bleeding complications, excessive blood loss, intracranial hemorrhaging, eye bleeding (vitreous hemorrhage), stomach bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, wound infections from inhibited clotting, and lack of effectiveness in preventing dangerous clotting.
