Legal Actions So Far

There are currently over 25,000 lawsuits pending before the court as of this writing, so clearly if you have experienced side effects of this drug, you aren’t alone. Obviously, the circumstances, details, and potential settlements in each case differ based on specifics. This is where the legal pros at Class Action Legal Center can help. We specialize in evaluating the individual circumstances of your case and connecting you with the best attorneys and firms in the nation to ensure you get the justice to which you are entitled. Our clients have already recovered hundreds of millions in damages and settlements in similar cases.

With this drug, what is alleged in many of the pending suits is that the drug makers and marketers were well aware of the high risk involved, and did not adequately disclose that risk to doctors and patients. If proven, this claim would make the drug maker legally liable for damages to anyone who suffered the ill effects of the drug. While this claim is hotly denied by the drugs’ manufacturers, it is easy to see how this could happen. Billions of dollars in annual sales are at stake, and Xarelto remains a popular and heavily prescribed medication. Time after time, consumers have seen their safety traded for higher Big Pharma profit margins. Many experienced attorneys believe that it has happened again here. Let the Class Action Law Center connect you with one of those skilled and successful attorneys.

What is Xarelto, and What Does it Do?

Xarelto is the name brand of the drug Rivaroxaban. It was developed in 2008 and approved by the FDA in 2011 by Bayer and is marketed in the US by Jassen Pharmaceutica. The drug is a blood thinner and anticoagulant and is used to treat and prevent averse blood clotting which can lead to stroke (deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or the clotting effect of atrial fibrillation.) It is also commonly used after knee or hip surgeries, again, to prevent averse blood clotting.

Sounds pretty good, right?

Unfortunately, this drug has some quite severe side effects. People using it have suffered from gastrointestinal, cranial, and retinal hemorrhaging. Worse, and unlike other anticoagulants, there is no way to turn off the anticoagulant effect of the drug, as there is with other anticoagulants, in an emergency. Doctors have seen patients bleed to death and had no way to stop it, due to this critical and potentially deadly shortcoming.

The number of prescription drugs and medical devices on the market is increasing daily, making it nearly impossible for consumers to keep up with the ever-expanding number of treatment options and their potential side effects. It is for that reason that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is entrusted with the essential task of protecting the public from unsafe medical products.

2019 we partnered with The Xarelto Class Action Claims Center. We believe they are going to get the largest Xarelto lawsuit settlement amounts; the group of attorneys they work with are outstanding.
