Xarelto Class Action Lawsuits
Representing Xarelto Injured Parties From Across the United States
Xarelto is a blood thinner and anti-clotting medication. This medication is jointly owned by Bayer and Johnson & Johnson and marketed by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Xarelto is also known by its generic name, rivaroxaban.
In July 2011, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Xarelto for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis in hip and knee replacement surgery patients. In November 2011, the FDA approved it for the treatment of stroke in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Xarelto quickly became a very popular choice with doctors because of its once-daily dosage recommendation and decreased blood-monitoring requirements.
Over time, a number of troubling side effects began to emerge, including intestinal bleeding, brain hemorrhaging and uncontrollable bleeding from a wound. Many people required hospitalization, and some bled to death. Several lawsuits have been filed on behalf of Xarelto injured parties, and the cases have recently been consolidated to the Eastern District of Louisiana before United States District Judge Eldon Fallon.
