Xarelto attorneys note a lawsuit filed on behalf of a man who died from internal bleeding after taking the anticoagulant Xarelto. The lawsuit, brought by the man’s widow, alleges that Xarelto internal bleeding caused her husband’s death, and that Xarelto’s links to uncontrollable internal bleeding created an “unreasonable risk” of injury and death. Many patients have filed similar lawsuits claiming that Xarelto causes life-threatening internal bleeding, and that the drug makers failed to disclose the drug’s risks.

Widow Claims Drug Makers Failed to Warn of “Unreasonable Risks”
According to the widow’s lawsuit, her husband died as a result of internal bleeding caused by Xarelto, and that drug poses serious risks to all patients who use Xarelto, including:
- An “unreasonable risk” of injury and death
- Increased risk of irreversible bleeds
- A lack of sufficient benefit “to tolerate the extreme risk” associated with use of the drug
The lawsuit also includes allegations that Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Healthcare failed to adequately warn and protect the public of the serious and possibly fatal internal bleeding risks associated with Xarelto use. The claim alleges that the drug maker knew that the dangers associated with Xarelto outweigh any benefit the drug provides but did not disclose this information to the public.
Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation
Drug makers have a duty to provide safe drugs. If there are risks of harm associated with their drugs, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable for injuries that may result.
Patients who are injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- The permanency of the injury
- 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 entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including:
- Conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
