In previous blog posts, we have discussed claims that blood thinner Xarelto can cause allegedly unstoppable bleeding events, leading to patient injuries and deaths. Now, according to The Madison-St. Clair Record, yet another lawsuit has been filed against the makers of Xarelto. In the suit, a Rhode Island man is suing several companies for damages he attributes to taking Xarelto from 2011 through 2015, including:
- Janssen Research & Development, LLC
- Janssen Ortho, LLC (a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary)
- Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
- Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
- Bayer Pharma AG
- Bayer Corp.
- Bayer Healthcare AG
- Bayer AG
The suit accuses the defendants of not thoroughly researching Xarelto before putting it on the market, not disclosing knowledge of serious side effects, failing to warn consumers or physicians of risks associated with taking Xarelto, fraud and breach of warranty.
