Xarelto was manufactured by Bayer Health Care and Janssen Pharmaceutical and has made more than $1 billion in sales for the companies. Xarelto works as a blood thinner, thereby reducing the amount of blood clots that could increase the risk of stroke in a person. However, the side effects cause severe injuries that have affected hundreds of people triggering a number of lawsuits against the companies. The Abbott Law Group has the expertise to help anyone file a Xarelto lawsuit. Please call our toll free number at 877.292.1500 or complete the free case evaluation form on our website and our lawyers will be waiting to help you file a claim.
Xarelto was developed as an innovative approach in the treatment of blood clot and stroke prevention. Xarelto was promoted as an anticoagulant that would not require blood tests and constant monitoring to detect blood clots in patients, as was the case in Warfarin a similar anticoagulant that was developed decades ago. For this reason, it became the most popular blood thinner on the market.
What Can Xarelto Cause in Patients
Xarelto is not safe and can cause blood related conditions in patients such as uncontrolled bleeding, cerebral hemorrhage and rectal bleeding. Uncontrolled bleeding puts the patient at a high risk for loss of bodily functions leading to death. The uncontrolled bleeding caused by Xarelto may be irreversible since the medication has no antidote to stop this side effect, resulting into substantial damage and fatality to the patient.
Pharmaceutical Corporations’ Liability over Xarelto-Induced Damages
Bayer Health Care and Janssen Pharmaceutical marketed Xarelto aggressively without performing the proper testing and providing adequate warning about its side effects. There are currently several lawsuits brought against the companies alleging that they should be held liable for the injuries suffered by people who used Xarelto. The side effects from Xarelto are very similar to those of Pradaxa, an anticoagulant produced by the pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingleheim that recently settled a class action lawsuit for over $600 million. It is most likely a Xarelto lawsuit could be settled for the same amount or higher.
Getting Legal Help for Xarelto Uncontrolled Bleeding and Other Side Effects
Given the fact that a settlement has been reached with a company that manufactured an anticoagulant similar to Xarelto, it is most likely that Bayer and Janssen may agree to a settlement with victims of Xarelto.
