Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 09, 2014
Wright & Schulte LLC has launched a new Xarelto lawsuit page in response to the growing litigation involving the blood thinner. According to a Reuters report published June 14, 2014, Bayer AG and Janssen Pharmaceuticals are named as defendants in a handful of Xarelto lawsuits that have been filed in the U.S. Though Reuters did not report the details of the lawsuits, court documents in Pennsylvania indicate that at least one claim was filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas this past February, which alleges a Kentucky woman’s hospitalization in 2013 was the result of Xarelto bleeding. (Case Number 140201754)

Most recently, a Florida woman filed a Xarelto lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida following the death of her husband. According to the June 23rd complaint, uncontrollable bleeding allegedly related to Xarelto resulted in his death from a subdural hematoma. (Case 0:14-cv-61448-JAL).
Wright & Schulte LLC is now offering free legal evaluations to anyone who may have suffered from life-threatening internal bleeding and related complications while using Xarelto, including:
Xarelto is a new-generation blood thinner that was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2011. Like any blood thinner, Xarelto can sometimes cause internal bleeding. But according to Xarelto lawsuits, there is no approved antidote to stop this type of internal hemorrhaging. The lawsuits also allege that Xarelto was wrongly marketed as an improvement over warfarin, a blood thinning drug that has been on the market for decades. The complaints point out that internal bleeding associated with warfarin can be stopped via the administration of vitamin K.

In May, the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices (ISMP) reported that the FDA had received more than 680 Xarelto side effect reports during the previous 12 month period. During the same period, another blood thinner called Pradaxa was named in just over 520 reports. The ISMP noted that this was the first time Xarelto complications had outnumbered those involving Pradaxa. Like Xarelto, there is currently no antidote to stop Pradaxa bleeding.
