Xarelto Cases Consolidated in Louisiana

Xarelto Cases Consolidated in Louisiana

Federal judges in Louisiana have ruled to consolidate nearly two dozen lawsuits against the manufacturers of the drug Xarelto, Johnson & Johnson and Bayer Ag. The plaintiffs, who have filed suit, are claiming that the manufactures did not properly warn against the serious risks and side effects. The manufactures of Xarelto, were opposed to the consolidation claiming that the plaintiffs medical history and their drug dosages records contained discrepancies. The defendants were unsuccessful because the judiciary panel on the multidistrict litigation favored with the plaintiffs and they agreed the cases had enough common complaints for consolidation.

Users of the drug Xarelto, an anticoagulant, are prescribed the drug to prevent blood clots, reduce risk of stroke, and to treat deep vein thrombosis. One of the major risks associated with Xarelto is serious bleeding that cannot be controlled. Unlike another blood thinner, Warfarin, there is no antidote to reverse the thinning of the blood causing users to lose enough blood to have permanent injury or death. Patients sustaining serious injuries and death are claiming that they weren't adequately warned of the serious side effects and risks.
