Plaintiffs: Xarelto May Cause Severe Bleeding in the Skull or Digestive Tract
A federal judge and attorneys overseeing ongoing MDL over Xarelto, an anticoagulant that allegedly causes dangerous bleeding events, are now selecting 40 bellwether cases. These cases, which will help both sides evaluate how juries respond to their arguments and evidence, will be heard starting in February 2017. The Pennsylvania Record reports that four cases have already been selected. The first two cases are scheduled to be heard in Louisiana, while the next two will be heard in Texas and Mississippi.
The plaintiffs in the MDL contend that Xarelto can cause severe bleeding inside the skull or the digestive tract. They allege that the defendants could have reduced this risk by marketing Xarelto as a twice-daily drug that requires monitoring, rather than presenting it as a drug that can safely be taken once per day. The plaintiffs additionally accuse the manufacturers of failing to provide adequate warning regarding the serious risks associated with Xarelto.
