Xarelto

Xarelto was initially approved in 2011 and is one of the most recent blood thinners on the market. The blood thinner is manufactured by Bayer and is marketed by Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals.

Dangerous side effects include:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Intestinal bleeding
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Blood clots
  • Embolism
  • Brain hemorrhaging
  • Death caused by uncontrolled bleeding















There is no known antidote at this time for uncontrolled bleeding as a result of Xarelto. According to Drug Watch, Xarelto may be “on the same dangerous path that Pradaxa has taken.” In 2012 alone, there were a number of deaths as well as serious bleeding events linked to Xarelto, and by early 2016, those numbers had risen.

Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) against Xarelto Manufacturer

According to reports, plaintiffs have continued to file lawsuits over Xarelto, and in December of 2014 and January of 2015, judges both in Pennsylvania and Louisiana consolidated the filed cases into multidistrict litigation (MDL) as well as a mass tort program. Currently, according to court documents, there are more than 2,400 lawsuits filed over Xarelto just in the federal litigation in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Louisiana. The lawsuits claim that as a result of using the blood thinner, serious complications, health problems, and even death have occurred as a result of using Xarelto.

According to an article posted on Drug Watch on February 17th, 2015 filed under Current Litigation & Lawsuit News, the announcement was made that Bayer and J&J are seeking further federal approvals for Xarelto for stroke patients, even as cases are consolidated into MDL.

The third and fourth trials will take place in Mississippi and Texas on April 24th, 2017 and May 30th, 2017.

Pradaxa and FDA Reports

Pradaxa is a blood thinner medication that was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010 to reduce the risk of strokes and pulmonary embolism in those who suffer from non-valvular atrial fibrillation. Pradaxa was originally marketed to replace warfarin as a better alternative. However, by 2011, its first year after entering the market, the Boehringer-Ingelheim manufactured drug was linked to more than 500 deaths in the U.S. and was named in 932 adverse event reports by the end of 2011.

2012 - According to Tom Moore, the senior scientist for drug safety and policy at the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, he indicated that the FDA data since 2010 has revealed 1,158 U.S. deaths and 12,494 serious injuries linked to Pradaxa – more complaints than any other U.S. drug.

2013 - FDA announces a new, large-scale assessment of Pradaxa bleeding rates in relation to warfarin.

Dangerous side effects of Pradaxa include:

  • Death by Severe Bleeding
  • Hospital Stays Due to Severe Bleeding
  • Large Bruises, unexplainable bruises
  • Coughing up Blood Clots
  • Menstrual or Vaginal Bleeding that is Heavier than Normal














Pradaxa Settlement Reached for 4K Active Cases

According to media outlets, Boehringer Ingelheim has announced a settlement of $650MM to be paid on approximately 4K suits over their blood thinner, Pradaxa. The Federal Pradaxa lawsuits were consolidated into multidistrict litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois under Judge David R. Herndon in August of 2012. However, according to legal reports, other consolidated state proceedings also took place in California, Connecticut, Delaware, and Missouri. Despite agreeing to the settlement, Boehringer Ingelheim denied any misconduct or unlawful activity, stating that they believed the settlement allows their company “to avoid the distraction and uncertainty of protracted litigation over years and years.”

According to the settlement terms, the average settlement amount for each case is $162K, although many cases with serious injuries, including death, reached figures of approximately $500K.
