Report: Xarelto Lawsuits Mount While Drug Maker Assures Drug Is Safe
Questions about a drug company’s incentives and the validity of several studies involving the prescription drug Xarelto are being raised in the wake of a new press release distributed by Johnson & Johnson. Raw Story reports that Johnson & Johnson, the parent company of Janssen Pharmaceutica, which manufactures Xarelto, is circulating information about what they claim are “landmark real-world studies” touting the safety and effectiveness of the drug.
Thousands of Xarelto users have filed lawsuits against the makers of the drug in recent years, many of whom allege that the company withheld information from patients about Xarelto’s risks and link to uncontrollable bleeding. Though the studies detailed in the recent press release are intended to alleviate some of these concerns, several factors are calling the drug manufacturer’s motives into question. Raw Story claims that one of the studies, for example, was funded by Bayer, which has a financial stake in the matter because of an existing partnership with Janssen Pharmaceutica in marketing Xarelto, the website reported.
How a Nevada Xarelto Attorney Can Help
Drug manufacturers have a duty to ensure their products are accompanied by full and accurate instructions and warnings to guide prescribing doctors and other health care providers in making treatment decisions. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
Patients who are injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- The permanency of the injury
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of income or ability to work
If a patient dies from complications after taking Xarelto, family members may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including:
- Conscious pain and suffering of a loved one prior to death
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
Patients who have suffered severe side effects after taking Xarelto, as well as the families of those who have died as a result of complications with the drug, are encouraged to seek the advice of a Nevada Xarelto attorney to learn more about their rights and remedies.
