Flawed Testing And Misrepresentation Claimed By Plaintiff
The lawsuit, filed in February 2016, claims that the plaintiff suffered various personal injuries as a result of taking the anticoagulant Xarelto, which has been linked to irreversible and life-threatening bleeding events. The complaint contends that the drug possessed a flawed design, was tested poorly and also lacked proper label warnings.
The man is suing Janssen Research & Development LLC, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., and other defendants, claiming that they knowingly misled patients and doctors about its risks and effectiveness. According to The Madison Record, the man claims that he and his doctors were not informed that Xarelto could cause uncontrollable and life-threatening bleeding events, and that the drug’s makers failed to safely design Xarelto, adequately test it or accurately represent it to other parties, including healthcare providers and prospective patients.
The man alleges that he suffered physical complications, financial losses and emotional distress because the defendants failed to produce a safe drug. He further claims that he will suffer ongoing anxiety and fear due to the potential for future complications stemming from his use of the blood-thinning medication. He is now seeking compensation and judgment on more than 90 counts against the pharmaceutical companies responsible for producing and marketing Xarelto, the website reported.
How an Arkansas Xarelto Lawyer Can Help
Drug manufacturers have a duty to ensure their products are accompanied by full and accurate instructions and warnings to guide prescribing doctors and other health care providers in making treatment decisions. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
Patients who are injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- The permanency of the injury
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of income or ability to work
If a patient dies from complications after taking Xarelto, family members may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including:
- Conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
Patients who have suffered severe side effects after taking Xarelto, as well as the families of those who have died as a result of complications with the drug, are encouraged to seek the advice of an Arkansas Xarelto lawyer to learn more about their rights and remedies.
