Widow Claims Her Husband Suffered Fatal Stroke and Bleeding From Xarelto
According to the complaint, the woman’s husband was suffering from atrial fibrillation, a condition in which the heart has an irregular, often rapid beat that may cause poor blood flow in the body. He took Xarelto to treat the condition, and after about a month, he suffered cerebral hemorrhage, stroke, and irreversible bleed that his widow claims were caused by the drug and led to his death.
The complaint also alleges that only after 151 deaths and 2,081 FDA-reported incidents linked to Xarelto in 2012 did Janssen modify the U.S. labeling and prescribing information to include additional guidance, but that it still never warned about potentially fatal Xarelto bleeding risks.
Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation
If a drug maker fails to fulfill its duty to provide safe drugs, or to warn of potential risks to patients that may be associated with its medication, the company can be held liable for injuries that may result.
Patients in Mississippi and other states who are injured after taking Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages resulting from their injuries, including medical expenses, the extent of an injury, pain and suffering from an injury, and loss of income or ability to work.
Family members of patients who die of complications after taking Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one, including medical expenses that can be attributed to the loved one’s fatal injury, mental anguish from the loss of a loved one, and loss of relationship or financial support of a loved one.
