Lawsuit: Drug Makers Failed To Warn Patients Of Xarelto Risks
The lawsuit alleges that side effects of Xarelto, an anticoagulant that is used to prevent blood clots, caused a man’s death and that the drug makers were negligent in failing to warn users of the risks associated with the drug. Due to Xarelto’s properties as a blood thinner, the drug allegedly has the potential to cause life-threatening bleeding events. The lawsuit contends that the drug makers, Janssen Research & Development and Bayer AG, failed to properly advise patients of this danger and allegedly concealed the results of early clinical tests of the drug.
The manufacturers of Xarelto maintain that the medication offers more benefits than risks to patients. However, Xarelto differs significantly from many of its alternatives, including the traditional anticoagulant Warfarin, because it did not have an antidote that can halt its effects when it was placed on the market. The lawsuit claims that the manufacturer’s failure to warn consumers about the risks associated with taking Xarelto allegedly resulted directly in the death of the plaintiff’s relative, the website reported.
Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation
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 have been injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Loss of income or ability to work
If a patient dies from complications after taking Xarelto, his or her family members may be able to pursue claims for their loved one’s wrongful death. Compensation may include:
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish from the loss of a loved one
- Loss of financial support of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
