Plaintiffs: Drug Makers Knowingly Misrepresented Xarelto Risks
According to news reports, several plaintiffs are seeking damages from the manufacturers of Xarelto in a class action lawsuit, which claims that the makers of the anticoagulant knowingly misrepresented its dangers. The plaintiffs contend that the drug makers were negligent in producing a defective drug and failing to warn patients of the serious risks associated with Xarelto, according to The Louisiana Record. Each plaintiff is pursuing damages in excess of $75,000 as well as compensation for legal costs.
Xarelto has been tied to severe internal bleeding which have the potential to cause serious injuries or even death. Consequently, the plaintiffs allege that the makers of Xarelto were wrong in presenting the blood-thinner as a safe method of stroke prevention. The plaintiffs contend in the lawsuit, filed in July 2015, that they suffered harmful bleeding events, increased medical costs or the loss of loved ones due to the drug’s defects and the negligence of its manufacturers, the website reported.
