Plaintiff Claims Insufficient Safety Testing
Xarelto is a commonly used blood thinner that treats and prevents blood clots and also lowers the risk of stroke in patients who have atrial fibrillation. The lawsuit, filed on March 2015, alleges that the plaintiff’s father was prescribed Xarelto by his doctor for the treatment of atrial fibrillation. After taking the drug for five months the plaintiff’s father suffered an internal bleed and died.
The plaintiff not only claims that the drug makers, Bayer AG and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, were negligent in failing to perform sufficient testing on the drug, but his lawsuit also alleges that the companies acted negligently by failing to warn the public of the dangerous side effects associated with Xarelto. The drug has been linked to serious injury and death as a result of uncontrollable internal bleeding.
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 financial support of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
Affected patients are encouraged to speak with a Xarelto lawsuit attorney to learn more about their rights and remedies.
