“Since this litigation was established in December 2014, our Firm has not only filed numerous Xarelto lawsuits; we’ve also been actively monitoring updates that pertain to our clients. We are looking forward to information that may be discussed at the proceeding’s status conference in April,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective medical devices and drugs. The Firm is actively filing Xarelto lawsuits on behalf of individuals who allegedly suffered a life-threatening internal bleeding episode, a stroke, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism caused by the anticoagulant.

Xarelto Lawsuits

With more than 220 Xarelto lawsuits now pending in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana, parties involved in the blood thinner litigation will likely have a lot to discuss at its April status conference. The proceeding was created in December 2014 after a federal panel transferred several similar cases to the Court.

Plaintiffs involved in Xarelto lawsuits that were filed by Bernstein Liebhard LLP and other Firms involved in the Louisiana litigation allege episodes of uncontrollable internal bleeding, as well as strokes, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and other complications they claim to have been inadequately warned about. Plaintiffs further allege that Janssen and Bayer have been improperly marketing Xarelto as a convenient alternative to warfarin, a decades-old alternative, since it received U.S. market clearance in 2011. They further claim that the companies fail to fully tell consumers that there is no available reversal agent to stop Xarelto bleeding episodes once they begin, which may increase a patient’s risk for death. Warfarin is also associated with this complication, but the lawsuits point out that those episodes can be stopped with the administration of Vitamin K.

Xarelto patients who allegedly experienced internal bleeding episodes caused by the blood thinner may be entitled to compensation for out-of-pocket medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
