Xarelto claims are currently being filed against Janssen Pharmaceuticals (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson) and Bayer for failure to warn doctors and patients of the risk of uncontrollable bleeding associated with Xarelto. Xarelto is an anticoagulant or blood thinner used to prevent stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and blood clots.
Why is Xarelto dangerous?
Unlike many other blood thinners, Xarelto does not have an antidote or reversal agent; therefore, unlike many other blood thinners, if a person on Xarelto has a bleeding problem, it is very hard or impossible for doctors to treat. As a result, many have suffered very serious injuries and death due to the use of Xarelto.
What is most upsetting is that common blood thinners that have been used for years do have antidote or reversal agents. The drug company’s sold Xarelto as a new wonder drug when in fact it was far more dangerous than the less expensive blood thinners on the market.
In 2013, the FDA sent a warning letter to the makers of Xarelto regarding misleading advertising and minimizing risks associated with Xarelto. However, the drug manufacturers continued to make and sell the drug. Because the drug manufacturers sold a drug they know was dangerous and caused serious bleeding injuries you may be entitled to significant compensation.
