Plaintiff Claims Drug Maker Failed to Adequately Test Xarelto
A man is pursuing damages for enduring injuries that he allegedly suffered as a result of using the anti-clotting drug Xarelto. The man’s lawsuit, which was filed in Louisiana in April 2016, alleges that the manufacturers of the drug failed to design a safe product, study it adequately, or test it. As The Louisiana Record reports, the lawsuit also contends that the defendants failed to accurately market Xarelto, give users adequate instructions regarding its use, or provide warnings about its risks.
The man is now seeking a trial by jury and compensation to address numerous damages that he allegedly suffered because of his use of Xarelto. Specifically, the man claims that he experienced severe gastrointestinal bleeding as a direct side effect of Xarelto less than six months after he began taking the drug. In addition to suffering lingering injuries from this internal bleeding, the man incurred needless medical expenses, required hospitalization and suffered significant physical and emotional pain, the website reported.
