What Are the Steps in Participating in a Xarelto Class Action or Individual Injury Lawsuit?
Individuals throughout the United States may be entitled to financial compensation through a Xarelto class action lawsuit, wrongful death lawsuit or individual injury lawsuit as result of the drug makers’ failure to adequately warn about the risk of severe and potentially life-threatening bleeding problems associated with the anticoagulant.
As of mid-2015, claims have already been filed on behalf of more than 2,000 people nationwide, but our Xarelto injury lawyers believe that there are still thousands of viable claims for individuals who have not yet hired an attorney or filed a lawsuit. Free consultations and claim evaluations are being provided by Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. to help determine what legal options may be available for former users of the medication and their family members.

Lawsuits are being pursued on behalf of individuals throughout the United States, alleging that Bayer Healthcare and Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately warn about the bleeding risks associated with side effects of Xarelto, including the lack of an approved reversal agent that doctors could use to control bleeding that develops.

- Uncontrollable Bleeds
- Hemorrhagic Stroke

Class Action vs. Injury Lawsuit for Xarelto
Most of the injury claims being pursued by the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. will be handled as individual product liability lawsuits, as opposed to being part of a Xarelto class action.
Those who suffered serious bleeding injuries may be entitled to substantial compensation to settle Xarelto claims. In addition, families of individuals who died may be entitled to damages through a Xarelto wrongful death lawsuit. Since the circumstances surrounding the injury or death will be different in each lawsuits, such cases can not be litigated through one class representative.
In December 2014, the federal courts established centralized management for all Xarelto lawsuits in an MDL, or multidistrict litigation.
While many people refer to such claims as a class action for Xarelto, there are important differences, as each case will still be handled individually with each plaintiff required to establish that their injury was caused by side effects of the medication.
