Lawsuit: Drug Makers More Concerned With Profit Than Xarelto Risks

The anticoagulant Xarelto has been linked to uncontrollable bleeding and death. Xarelto attorneys note a recent lawsuit filed on behalf of a deceased Rhode Island man claiming that drug makers Bayer Healthcare and Janssen Pharmaceuticals failed to disclose potentially fatal Xarelto risks and were placing profits over people with respect to dangers of the drug.

Widow Claims Drug Makers Concealed Knowledge of Xarelto Risks

The lawsuit filed by the Rhode Island man’s widow claims that the drug makers placed Xarelto on the market despite its known risks. Other allegations include that the drug makers:

  • Continued to declare Xarelto safe even when reports of injuries and deaths were made known to them
  • Deliberately concealed knowledge of the harm Xarelto could cause
  • Failed to adequately inform customers or the medical community about the risks associated with the drug
  • Failed to disclose information regarding an antidote that would have reversed the bleeding

Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation

Drug makers have a duty to provide safe drugs. If there are risks present that could potentially cause harm, it is also the duty of drug makers to warn patients. Failure to fulfill these duties could result in the drug makers being held liable for injuries to patients.

Patients who are injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation, which can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • The extent of the injury
  • Loss of income or ability to work
  • Pain and suffering

If a patient dies from complications after taking Xarelto, family members may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one, including:

  • Mental anguish
  • Conscious pain and suffering of the loved one prior to death
  • Loss of financial support or companionship
  • Medical expenses attributable to the fatal injury
