If you or someone you know has taken the blood thinner Xarelto and has had internal bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, brain bleed or death then contact a Mobile Alabama Xarelto Lawsuit Attorney at Moore Law Firm to understand your rights to recovery.
Nearly two dozen lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Corp. over the blood thinner Xarelto have been consolidated in Louisiana federal court. The U.S. Judiciary Panel on Multidistrict Litigation found the cases have enough common complaints to warrant centralization. Xarelto has been linked to serious side effects including internal bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, brain bleed and death.
Xarelto is a novel oral anticoagulant approved in the United States for six indications including reducing the risk of stroke in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation; treating deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, and reducing the reoccurrence of these conditions; and preventing blood clots in patients following knee or hip replacement surgery. Xarelto carries a black box warning for an increased risk of blood clots with premature discontinuation of therapy and a risk of epidural or spinal hematomas resulting in long-term or permanent paralysis in patients treated with Xarelto receiving neuraxial anesthesia or undergoing spinal puncture. Black box warnings are the most serious type of warning issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and is reserved for drugs that carry a significant risk of serious or life threatening adverse effects.
Xarelto blood thinner litigation has been consolidated before U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon in the Eastern District of Louisiana, who, in 2007, presided over suits against Merck & Co. over its medication Vioxx. The Vioxx litigation resulted in a $4.85 billion settlement.
