Widow Claims Drug Makers Failed to Warn of Potentially Fatal Bleeding

According to the widow’s lawsuit, Xarelto use is associated with an increased risk of irreversible internal bleeding. She alleges that Bayer and Janssen failed to adequately warn the public of the severe risks of Xarelto, and, because of those risks, she claims they “failed to exercise ordinary care in the designing, researching, manufacturing, marketing, supplying, promoting, packaging, sale, testing, quality assurance, quality control, and distribution of Xarelto…”

The woman claims that Xarelto puts patients at an “unreasonable risk” of injury and death, and that it was the drug makers’ negligence that ultimately led to her husband’s death. The woman also claims that the drug makers:

  • “Wantonly and with malice withheld knowledge” of the drug’s dangers.
  • Concealed the drug’s risks from the public in order to prevent FDA approval delays or rejection of the product.
  • Continued to promote Xarelto with the knowledge that the product is associated with irreversible bleeds.

Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation

If a drug maker fails to fulfill its duty to provide safe drugs and to warn of potentially harmful side effects that may be associated with its medication, it could be held liable for any injuries that may result. Patients who have been injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering from an injury
  • Loss of income or ability to work

If a patient dies from complications after taking Xarelto, his or her family members may be able to pursue claims for their loved one’s wrongful death. Compensation may include:

  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
  • Loss of a loved one’s financial support
  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical expenses attributable to the fatal injury
