Mississippi and Texas Among The Venues

According to reuters.com, a federal judge in Louisiana has set dates for the first bellwether trials in consolidated litigation against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceutical Division, and Bayer AG, over injuries allegedly caused by the blood-thinning drug Xarelto.

The news report states that U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in the Eastern District of Louisiana said the first Xarelto trial would take place in that court on February 6, 2017. A second bellwether trial will also be held in the Eastern District of Louisiana starting on March 13, 2017, and two more trials have been scheduled, respectively, to take place in Mississippi on April 24, 2017, and May 30, 2017, in Texas.

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, 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 a loved one’s financial support
  • Funeral expenses

Affected patients are encouraged to speak with a Xarelto lawsuit attorney to learn more about their rights and remedies.
