Anticoagulant Linked to Stroke, Blood Clots, Internal Bleeding

Xarelto Lawsuits

Xarelto is one of several drugs in a new class of anticoagulants (blood thinners) called direct factor Xa inhibitors. The first of these new class of drugs to gain FDA approval was Pradaxa. The manufacturer of Pradaxa®, Boehringer Ingelheim, settled the lawsuits it was facing, agreeing to pay $650 million to approximately 4,000 people across the United Sates for similar bleeding injuries.

Xarelto Risks and Side Effects

Xarelto, like other blood thinners, carries a risk of internal bleeding. However, there is evidence showing that Xarelto is not as safe or effective as other blood thinners and that the internal bleeding caused by Xarelto cannot be controlled or reversed by physicians, unlike the traditional class of blood thinners which includes Coumadin (warfarin).

Xaralta Warnings and Recalls

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) advises that Xarelto has been associated with “serious, disabling or fatal injury,” including blood clots or thromboembolic events

Xaralta Lawsuit Settlements

As of this time, there have been no large mass tort settlements involving Xaralta. Generally, however, large groups of settlements do not occur until such time as a few lawsuits are tried before a jury, and the manufacturer is able to more thoroughly understand its financial risk.

The manufacturer of the similar blood thinner drug, Pradaxa®, Boehringer Ingelheim, settled the lawsuits it was facing, agreeing to pay $650 million to approximately 4,000 people across the United Sates for similar bleeding injuries.
