50 Xarelto Lawsuits Added to Pennsylvania Mass Tort in March 2015
In addition to Xarelto medication cases pending in the federal MDL, an April 23, 2015 Case List released by the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas in Pennsylvania shows that at least 204 Xarelto lawsuits are pending in Pennsylvania’s state court mass tort proceeding. In March 2015, 50 lawsuits were added to that proceeding, and the claims allege that Xarelto is associated with severe internal bleeding and related complications, including pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, and stroke.
Attorneys note that during its first 12 months on the market, Xarelto medication was named in 2,081 adverse event reports that were submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. 151 reported deaths were attributed to the product. In comparison, a long-standing blood thinning medication on the market, warfarin, was named in only 56 reported deaths out of 861 total adverse event reports. Consolidated litigation in both Louisiana federal court and Pennsylvania state court were established to allow cases in which plaintiffs have similar complaints to move more efficiently through the courts.
Patients who suffered severe complications from Xarelto medication may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses. Family members of those who died as a result of taking the medication may be entitled to wrongful death damages. Those who are interested in pursuing a claim for compensation are encouraged to learn their options today, as state laws limit the time each patient has to pursue a claim.
