Xarelto Was Misrepresented, According to Lawsuit
Xarelto is a drug designed as treatment to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis in patients who have recently undergone knee or hip surgery. Deep vein thrombosis is a serious and potentially deadly condition marked by the development of blood clots, usually in the extremities, that can travel to the lungs or brain.
The recent lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson alleges that the company fraudulently represented the safety and efficacy of this particular drug, and that it chose to conceal risks associated with the drug.
Some of the alleged dangers of using Xarelto include:
- Excessively heavy menstruation
- Unstoppable/uncontrolled bleeding at surgical or injection site
- Bruising, especially around the mouth, nose, and genitals
- Increased stroke risk
Injured Patients May Be Eligible for Compensation
If a patient takes Xarelto and suffers complications, including internal bleeding, he or she may be entitled to compensation, which can be based on a number of factors, including:
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of income or ability to work
- Past and future medical expenses
If a patient is killed, family members may be able to pursue compensation on behalf of deceased loved ones. Wrongful death damages may include:
- Conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish resulting from the loss of a loved one
- Loss of financial support
- Loss of companionship
- Medical expenses attributable to the fatal injury
