We have been keeping you up-to-date on the progress of the Xarelto multidistrict litigations, so we wanted to let you know that time is running out for any victims who have suffered injuries or lost loved ones due to this potentially harmful drug.
Act Now For Xarelto Suits
On September 17th, Judge Eldon Fallon signed a court order to begin selecting dates for the trials that would help speed the legal processes for the thousands of cases against the makers of Xarelto. These trials are called bellwether trials and they are expected to begin during the fall of 2016. That means that the multidistrict litigation could stop accepting new claims soon.
How Will The Xarelto Multidistrict Litigation Work?
There will be four trials that represent the interests of thousands of plaintiffs, and they will take place in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. However, people from all over the country—including Florida natives—will be represented in these cases. They claim that Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer Healthcare had prior knowledge to the fact that Xarelto cannot be counteracted like other anticoagulants but failed to properly warn consumers about the potentially fatal detail.
The makers of prescription medications have a responsibility to not misinform doctors or the public about their medications, and they can be held responsible by anyone injured by the use of those products.
