Complaint: Drug Maker Failed to Disclose Risks

The complaint alleges not only that Xarelto led to the man’s death, but also that the drug makers intentionally concealed their knowledge of the risks associated with taking the drug in order to promote Xarelto and boost overall sales.

The complaint further alleges that Johnson & Johnson failed to conduct appropriate clinical trials on the effects of the drug on humans before marketing it to the public. According to the complaint, the drug maker’s failure to conduct these tests forced the decedent and his physicians to refer to safety information specific to other drugs used for similar purposes, rather than information specific to the use of Xarelto. Because of these alleged omissions, the lawsuit claims the decedent suffered dangerous side effects, including severe bleeding that resulted in his death.
