Claim: Xarelto Bleeding Risk Not Adequately Disclosed
Whether drug makers failed to disclose important research and adequately warn users of the risks associated with the prescription anticoagulant Xarelto will soon be decided in a courtroom. The Madison Record reports that the estate of a victim who allegedly died due to complications related to his use of Xarelto is seeking a settlement from the drug makers to cover associated legal fees and related expenditures.
A representative for Janssen Research & Development touted the drug’s benefits when responding to the allegations made by the plaintiff’s attorneys, arguing that Xarelto’s benefits largely outweigh its associated risks. The lawsuit, filed in September 2015, seeks at least $50,000 from each defendant named in the lawsuit, Janssen Research & Development, Janssen Ortho, Jansen Pharmaceuticals Inc., Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., Bayer Pharma AG, Bayer Corporation, Bayer Healthcare, and Bayer AG, the website reported.
Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation
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 have been injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- 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 financial support of a loved one
