More than 400 Xarelto lawsuits are currently pending against Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Healthcare, alleging that the companies failed to disclose risks of severe side effects of Xarelto, including internal bleeding. Parties have been ordered by the U.S. District Judge presiding over federal Xarelto litigation to identify 40 to 60 plaintiffs to go through case-specific discovery and early trial settings.

Parties to Confer Regarding Initial Trials
In a case management order on May 4, 2015, the court ordered that parties are to meet prior to June 15, 2015 to propose a process for identifying the cases that will be included in a “bellwether” pool. Bellwether trials are the initial trials in large scale litigation, such as the Xarelto lawsuits, and are conducted to help gauge the response of juries to evidence and testimony that may be repeated throughout the litigation.
Federal Xarelto cases have been consolidated for pretrial proceedings in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Louisiana as part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL). An MDL is established when pursuing individual claims is inefficient and the respective damages to the plaintiffs are unique so that a class action is not appropriate. Exclusive to federal courts, an MDL transfers a certain number of individual cases to a single court for pretrial proceedings.
Injured Patients May Be Eligible for Compensation
Patients who have been injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation from the party responsible for their injuries. Compensation, or damages, can be based on a number of factors, including:
- The nature, extent and permanency of the injury
- Past and future medical expenses
- Transportation and lodging costs due to medical treatment
- Past and future pain, suffering and mental anguish
If a loved one is killed, family members may be entitled to recover wrongful death damages, including:
- Mental anguish, both past and future, resulting from the loss of a loved one
- Loss of financial support
- Funeral expenses
- Conscious pain and suffering of the loved one prior to death
- Medical expenses attributable to the fatal injury
