Plaintiff Claims to Have Suffered Severe Gastrointestinal Bleeding
A man is pursuing damages for enduring injuries that he claims to have suffered as a result of using the anti-clotting drug Xarelto. The man’s lawsuit, which was filed in April 2016, alleges that the producers of the drug failed to design a safe product, study it adequately or test it. According to The Louisiana Record, 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 injuries 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.
How a Missouri Xarelto Lawyer Can Help
Drug makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
