How to File a Xarelto Injury Claim
Xarelto® (also known as rivaroxaban) is a blood thinner drug that belongs in a drug class called Factor Xa inhibitors. Xarelto supposedly requires less doctor supervision than warfarin (Coumadin), which is one reason why doctors often prescribe it. However, there was no FDA-approved Xarelto antidote available until May 4, 2018. Prior to that, doctors and patients say the drug’s manufacturer didn’t properly warn them about uncontrolled bleeding risks. As a result, countless individuals suffered serious injuries or died. Thousands of Xarelto lawsuits are still pending, and bellwether trials are underway. If you experienced internal bleeding while taking rivaroxaban, you may have an eligible Xarelto injury claim.
Xarelto Lawsuits Mounting Over Severe Internal Bleeding Events
One thing warfarin had that Xarelto didn’t until the past year is a reversal agent. Anytime you take blood thinners, you also risk internal bleeding. That’s because your platelets can’t clot — in short, the anticoagulant is working. If you need surgery or get hurt, you’ll need to stop thinning your blood while you heal. Whenever a drug thins your blood too much, you also risk unexpected internal bleeding events. In Xarelto’s case, doctors had no reversal agent until May 2018. Even with an approved antidote like AndexXa, uncontrolled bleeding can happen internally and go unnoticed until it’s too late.
Internal bleeding symptoms include (but are not limited to):
- Vomiting blood
- Blood in the urine
- Heavier than normal menstrual periods
- Coughing up blood
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Brain hemorrhage
- Unexplained pain
- Trouble swallowing
- Very heavy nose bleeds
- Unexplained pain or bruising
Some blood thinner patients don’t understand that these episodes are often deadly. In fact, many families filing a Xarelto injury claim do so on a deceased loved one’s behalf.
Multimillion-Dollar Xarelto Injury Claim Settlement Reached in March 2019
In March 2019, two companies that jointly sell the blood thinner reached a $775 million Xarelto injury claim settlement. Bayer as well as J&J agreed to split payments and settle 25,000 pending lawsuits in state and federal courts. However, neither company admitted liability for all the wrongful death, failure to warn and product liability claims filed against them. If you think you may qualify for a cash settlement, you must act quickly to claim your part of the money.
