Why File a Xarelto lawsuit
Have you or your loved one suffered from serious side effects of taking Xarelto? If so, you are entitled to claim compensation for the injuries and losses incurred. You need to file a Xarelto lawsuit if you have suffered from wound leaks, bleeding, infections, and any other health complication after taking the blood thinner.
You are not alone in this. So far, there have been more than 20,000 Xarelto lawsuits filed in both state and federal courts across the country. Tens of thousands of patients who have been harmed by Xarelto have sued drug companies for compensation. There are many people who’ve lost their loved ones due to Xarelto side effects who are also suing the drug companies.
The drug companies have been continually getting rich while risking the lives of ordinary citizens to severe bleeding or even death. Statistics from Johnson & Johnson annual report indicate that the company amassed $2.3 billion from the sale of Xarelto in 2016 alone. Johnson & Johnson is a subsidiary of Janssen Pharmaceuticals, which markets Xarelto in the United States. Bayer, the manufacturer of the popular blood thinner, made $3.2 billion from Xarelto sales in the same year. These companies made billions from the sale of Xarelto and should be held responsible for the losses that Xarelto patients have incurred.
Patients who have filed Xarelto lawsuits allege that the drug can be dangerous because it’s tricky to administer and could potentially complicate wound healing. Studies have shown that Xarelto has a narrow therapeutic index. This means that the line between a safe and dangerous dose is quite thin. It is highly possible for patients to end up taking too little or too much of the drug unknowingly. Keep in mind that there’s no antidote for the drug. The manufacturer of the drug should therefore be held responsible for exposing unsuspecting patients to danger.
You need to file a Xarelto lawsuit because J&J, the drug’s marketer, and Bayer, the manufacturer, failed to give strong enough warnings about the drug’s side effects. The majority of patients who suffered from health complications after taking Xarelto claim that they were unaware of the fact that there’s no antidote for Xarelto. You deserve to be compensated because the drug’s manufacturer and marketer promoted the drug’s benefits and downplayed potential risks of taking the drug.
You should file a Xarelto lawsuit if you have suffered wound infections after taking the drug. The blood thinner reduces clotting which makes cuts and other injuries take a longer time to heal. The more a wound is left exposed, the higher the risk of infection. It has been shown that taking Xarelto increases infections and wound leakage by over 10 times. The drug exposed you to further risks of infection without warning, which you deserve to be compensated for.
Most importantly, you should file a lawsuit against the manufacturer and marketer of Xarelto because they misrepresented critical information about the safety and effectiveness of the drug. They failed to warn patents and health providers adequately about potential dangers and side effects of Xarelto, despite having concrete knowledge about the dangers associated with the drug. The companies put profit over the safety of patients and should therefore be held responsible for the losses and pain you suffered.
The companies should compensate for your losses because they didn’t use due care while developing the drug, failed to adequately test Xarelto before releasing it to the public, didn’t give adequate warnings to patients about the dangers of using the drug, failed to warn you about the lack of an antidote for the drug, and didn’t inform the FDA about the dangers associated with the drug. They should have removed the drug from the market immediately once they discovered its injuries and side effects.
