Who Can File a Xarelto Lawsuit?
Pharmaceutical companies produce drugs everyday in order to improve the quality of life and in some cases save lives. Unfortunately some of the manufactured drugs have been defective, as well as dangerous and even deadly. Prescription drugs with dangerous side effects are sometimes rushed to market without adequate testing; as a result people are being injured or die.
Xarelto lawsuits have been increasing throughout the United States because of the dangerous side effects caused by the drug. The most dangerous side effect for people taking Xarelto is uncontrollable bleeding. The most commonly reported ones are gastrointestinal bleeding and severe hemorrhaging.
Patients who have suffered financial hardship due to emergency visits, lost wages, emotional distress, or funeral expenses as a direct result of uncontrolled bleeding caused by Xarelto have filed lawsuits against its manufacturer.
Other lawsuits filed also accuse Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals of concealing important safety information and not testing the drug enough before it was put on the market.
Many patients who suffered bleeding-related injuries, strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, and heart attacks have also taken legal action against the manufacturer of Xarelto.
