How Long Will It Take to Settle Xarelto Cases?



UPDATE: Following a $775 million global settlement announced in March 2019, Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. is no longer reviewing new Xarelto cases. This page is provided for informational purposes only.

The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are pursuing Xarelto cases for individuals nationwide who may be entitled to financial settlements for themselves or their family, as a result of severe bleeding injuries associated with the blood thinner, including

  • Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleeding
  • Brain Hemorrahages
  • Stroke
  • Death

The first Xarelto bleeding lawsuits were filed against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson in early 2014, and there are now more than 23,000 claims brought on behalf of individuals who suffered severe or fatal injuries.

Since the drug makers have refused to make reasonable attempts to settle Xarelto cases, hundreds of individual cases are being prepared for trials in waves, and it is expected that the U.S. District Judge presiding over the litigation may begin remanding claims to courts nationwide if settlements are not reached.

Factors Considered in Xarelto Settlement Negotiations

All of the complaints involve similar allegations that the drug makers failed to properly research the Xarelto bleeding risks with this new-generation anticoagulant, or adequately warn about the lack of an effective reversal agent to allow doctors to control bleeding events that may develop among users.

In December 2014, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) centralized all cases filed throughout the federal court system as part of a Xarelto MDL in the Eastern District of Louisiana, where U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon will oversee pretrial proceedings and potential settlement discussions.

As part of the coordinated pretrial proceedings, Judge Fallon selected a small group of “bellwether” cases that were prepared for early trial dates, which have failed to move the parties closer to settling cases.

Negotiations to settle Xarelto cases are based on what a jury is likely to award to each individual case, including an assessment of the relative strengths of the lawsuit.

If individual plaintiffs are successful establishing their claim, a jury would take into account the nature of the claimed injury from Xarelto, the severity of the damage and the economic impact of the injury when determining the amount of compensation to be awarded.

In determining the amount of any damages a plaintiff may be entitled to receive for settling their Xarelto case, the following are some of the common factors that a jury may consider, and which will be taken into consideration during negotiations:

  • The extent and duration of the injury from Xarelto;
  • The effect that the Xarelto injury had on the overall physical and mental health or well-being of the patient;
  • The pain and mental anguish suffered in the past and which will likely be suffered in the future;
  • The amount of any past use or future medical expenses caused by Xarelto use;
  • Any lost wages or loss of earning capacity;
  • In a Xarelto wrongful death case, the losses suffered by the surviving family membes will be considered, including the loss of love, affection, and companionship.

    Approximately 5 months ago my wife was placed on xeralto (without consulting me, her spouse) and very suddenly on February 22, 2015 she began bleeding internally and the doctor on duty was not able to control or stop the bleeding. Within minutes after the bleeding occurred the doctor informed me that they would not be able to revive her and she passed away.

    Richard I am so sorry for your loss. My mom was also on Xarelto and she had a doctors appt in the morning. That night when I got home from work my daughter and grandchildren found her unresponsive on the couch. Within 3 hours she passed away from a brain hemmorhage. This is a horrible drug that needs to be taken off the market so no other loved ones will be lost.

    Sorry for your loss!! My Mother was diagnosed with AF once in her life in June of 2015. received 2 shock a treatments, the first shock did not work but with medication the second shock treatment worked. Mom was put on xerelto she did not take this long at all just six months and a half. My Mother passed away July 2 2015 and in the hospital they were giving her blood they said she passed away due to cardiac arrest. This drug is very dangerous and doctor’s need to stop prescribing it. You could see she was losing blood Moms eyes were black all around..

    I was put on xarelto may December,after feeling short winded and very tired ,I made a visit to the medical center with my conditions.they took blood samples and found my red blood cell count so low(3.84. Lowest ever recorded at their facility)I was taken directly to ICU,and received 7 units of blood.upon colonoscopy,they found blood had been leaking through a tumor in my colon and immediately cauterized the spots and took me off the xarelto,signed the report that xarelto led to the excessive blood loss.2 more days of that leakage,I would be dead now

    Why is this taking so long, patients are clearly dying in the same way. My mother had an irreversible hemorrhage.Is it possible to sue the spokesman as well for endorsing death? Bayer needs to be kicked good and hard. If I had a case would it interfere if I wrote a letter to the judge in Louisiana? I don’t care how old my mother was, she was a human being!
    Please get this deaddly medicine off the market, Bayer has deep pockets!

    I was put on coumadin back in 2010, in 2011 i was taken off and put on xerelto in 2012 i suffered a nasty internal bleeding episode i was hospitalized 4 days, i was kept on zerelto in May of 2014 i suffered a stroke was hospitalized till June 10th, on July 2nd 2014 i suffered a heart attack and to this day i continue to take xerelto cause the doctor says it helps to control Afib, i m constantly in and out of the hospital due to this medication cause there is nothing else that will help me i guess they have a death wish for me, hopefully in the end this issue will be addressed and neutralize and all of us victims to this sole called life saver get compensated for being a test rat.

    My 64 year old husband went on Xeralto a few months ago. He has had 4 vein spurting episodes since then and lost a lot of blood. He had never had this prior to taking this medication. We thought it would be better than Coumadin my Mom was on, but not now. How do we know he’s not bleeding internally?

    I was on axeralto for three months, I started having blood in my stool so I call the doctor and was taken off the medication. I had a colon exam and they found two small polyps that were negative. And diverticulosis and they think the axeralto could have caused the bleeding with this, plus hemorrhoidal possible bleeding. The polyps were the type that could turn to cancer so now I need to be tested in three years. I have a case pending if they feel that they can prove it’s caused by axealto. I’m sure glad I went off of the medication when I did. Sorry for some people’s lost.

    in 2011 i suffered was was thought to be a spider bite on my leg. After about three to four weeks of trying to be my own Dr. my mother finally pleaded with me to go to the e.r. because i pretty much looked like I was on the the doorstep of death. After getting checked out by the e.r. Dr.’s I was told i had deep vein thrombosis (dvt) and had to remain in the hospital until the could bring my leg infection to an end and deplete the blood clot. So after 8 or 9 days in the hospital i was finally released and was told i would have to get my ir levels checked every week to get the right perscribed dose of cumidin. While my vacation in the hospital, 2 times a day a would have to get my blood drawn for that reason. well the hospital staff would have to call in the special nurse to use the vein imaging machine to get blood drawn because it is super difficult to find my veins to draw blood. So when i went to the cumidin clinic the first and last time because of that reason, I was prescribed Xarelto. Just because on it a patient does not require their ir levels to be constantly maintained. Which i thought was great because I really couldnt find the spare time to go get stabbed 10 to 15 times by blood thirsty nurses and even afford to miss work o get that done.I believe it was like my third or forth week on Xarelto and I just returned back to work with my co-worker from lunch. We were standing at the back of his vehicle and i noticed a good 7″-10″ puddle of blood on the ground and it was getting bigger. This was a no joke puddle, Ive never seen this much blood. I stopped and grabbed him and asked him if he was bleeding and he said no. Then he saw my boot on my right foot was supporting a good stream of blood. I pulled up my pant leg and in a kinda complete shock saw my whole sock was just overfilled and thats when i put pressure on my foot and realized my freaking foot was in a boot of blood. I immediatley ran to the restroom and took off my boot, sock, and began to take the bandage off my just about healed spider bite when streams of blood started to shoot out of my leg. It was unbeliveable to me because I truly didnt even feel any of this happening. So i ripped my shirt off and managed to stop the hemraging vein and left work. I went to the e.r. and the dr.s had no idea what the cause or problem was. So i finished my perscription with no more incidences. All except a five year battle with a infected leg wound that has never healed. Im blaming Xarelto. From 2011 yo now its been a constant battle with keeping this at a point to where i dont just get my leg amputated. Im truly sorry for those who have suffered even worse tragadies from this.

    What sickens me about this situation is the fact that people have been dying from Xarelto since at least 2013 and nothing has been done about it by the company that producing this drug. It makes me so angry that they would continue to recommend this drug to people and that they have not taken it off the market. I wish someone would advertise more about the deaths and dangers of this drug. NO ONE SHOULD TAKE THIS DRUG and I keep telling everyone I know about it. But obviously, the all mighty dollar is worth more to this company that a person’s life – therefore I hope the attorneys are able to BLEED them dry. My mother passed away on Dec. 31, 2013 after taking the drug for less than 3 months – they could not stop the bleeding at the hospital. Please spread the word how bad this drug is to people.

    I watched my mother, my only living relative literally vaporize in front of me’ After 20 years in medicne I knew what happened. She had jusy experienced a massive stroke. I called and EMS shook their heads as they lifted her ought of her house on a tarp. The usaul driving time is 15 minutes, we were their in 10. I waited and waited in the triage area. Finally a Chaplain came out to greet me. I just wanted to check grip stength and all that goes with a stroke. The Neurologist aked me to step out of the room. He said she might rebound for 60 days and the palliative care after. That damn drug was rushed through the incompetent FDA. No way to stop the bleed. Sure enough she fought and fought to live but on her 87th day I had to make the decision to halt all treatment. She died in my arms. The issue as I see it is NO ATTORNEY wants just a few cases. They want more to suffer and die or vecome gravely injured before lighting the fire on these pharma’s that are out to kill off the elderly, the one’s who built America. Advertisements were all over TV, but time is limited! That’a a fallacy, if you did the right thing the cases would have been in court. The legal system is just as unethical as the drug companies. If you or a loved one are on that excuse for a population reducer get off of it now! I hope you attorney’s and judges who sit in your big offices get an oppoprtunity in your own life to experience something this horrible!M|any have suffered emotional and financial hardships.Shoe the LOVE here and show me the money. It can be pulled off of the market! Is this called JOB SECURITY?

    I was put on Xarelto in February 2013. I was on it when the doctor took a fasting test for my checkup which included CBC. My hemoglobin was 6.4. If I hadn’t had that test, I don’t know what would have happened. It couldn’t have gone too much lower without causing serious problems. I still have trouble with my hemoglobin level, and have to have the ulcers cauterized that are bleeding. I don’t think they should ever put a drug on the market, and say no bloodwork is needed while taking it.

    I had a knee replacement and also put on xarelto. I began noticing the bruising/bleeding under my skin and kept asking is this okay. I was told over and over again it was fine with bruising up my stomach and back. I developed a pulmonary embolism also. I had to have 2 units of blood Tran fused as long. But everything is OK. Really.

    My mom had knee replacement surgery 3 years ago (June 2013). She’s 82 now. My mom is and always has been in excellent health. After surgery she was given xeralto to prevent blood clotting. I don’t know why. She got weaker and weaker as they days went by. On fourth day, my brother found her unconscious and took her to hospital. She was barely alive. Her blood pressure was super low. She was driven by ambulance to a bigger hospital 50 miles away. She Needed 14 pints of blood and plasma over the next few days. She had a fountain of blood inside her stomach. It was so bad doctors couldn’t sew the huge injury back. They had to clip it but made it clear she likely wouldn’t make it. Well she did. Unfortunately, she now suffers from anxiety and panic and has such a difficult time now with every sensation in her body. Physically she is in good shape but has to see doctor a couple times per week because she thinks something is wrong

    My wife was prescribed Xralto June 2012 because she was allergic to warfarin. She was on Xralto for six months, then suddenly developed internal bleeding that caused her death in January 2013. The ER physician said that he could not have saved her even if he had been present when the visible signs appeared.

    I was placed on Xarelto for afib in late January, 2014. I developed severe rectal bleeding within two days and subsequently developed massive internal bleeding.I had to have two pleural effusions drained and had a cardiac tamponade which required pericardial draining immediately. My body remained extremely swollen for a month, in and out of six hospitals and rehab for four months. Developed pneumonia four times since then.

    Nobody should ever be placed on this drug! I nearly died from it and am lucky to be alive; and quite grateful. This was the worst experience of my life.

    When a person is placed on a blood thinner for the first time, Eliquis is the least harmful. Xarelto is too harsh!

    My dad was prescribed xarelto 20 mg about 8 months ago. He recently had a stroke, and internal bleeding. His blood pressure was 40 over 40. Can’t talk now or eat and can’t swallow. He’s still in the hospital and the Dr. Said its all from xarelto. If he was on comadin this wouldn’t of happened. Even Dr know how bad this drug is. Thanks for your time

    I’m 23, suffered a PE, was sent home the next day on this medicine, within three days I began coughing up blood. Found myself back in ICU with two tears in the lower chamber of my lung that were bleeding. They couldn’t do anything because there isn’t a reversal. I spent a week in the hospital, I lost my job from missing all this work. This drug is to risky. If you have the option choose to avoid it.

    My dad was on xelrelto for almost a year. He was admitted for GI bleed. On day seven he suffered massive stoke on right side of brain and several small on right side of brain.
    I brought my daddy home on hospice and he passed away September 27th. My heart I’d broken and my mind is infuriated that they put patients on medication knowing there is nothing to stop the side effects. This drug should be removed until they develop something to offset the side effects.

    My mother was put on xarelto in July 2015 for Afib and in May 2016 she had knee surgery that was still bleeding 2 and a half weeks later. They opened it up and cleaned it out and resutured it. In July all of a sudden she was in so much pain she could hardly walk. The orthopedic kept saying there was nothing wrong. Finally in Oct 2016 we went to another orthopedic and had fluid taken out and discovered a bacteria called Morganella had been growing since May. She had to have the knee replacement removed and 6 weeks of iv antibiotics. She has been in a rehab this whole time because she is not supposed to put weight on it till she gets another knee replacement. She had fluid taken last week to make sure the infection is gone so she can have surgery. She has also had to go to the hospital for low platelets and the Thursday before Christmas almost died. I read a few weeks ago that Xarelto can cause infections in surgical wounds. She has now been taken off and put on Coumadin. Hopefully she can get the surgery soon. She has been thru hell the last several months. The 29th of this month she runs out of insurance days for the rehab which she will need after the surgery too. I really want somebody to be held accountable for this but 2 lawyers now have said we have no case. I find that hard to believe.

    I was put on xeralto back in July because I suffered from a pulmonary embolism I am 36 years old. 3 weeks after Being on the drug I ended up in the hospital with a collapsed lung and had to have an emergency procedure done because I had a lot of pressure on my heart. A couple of weeks after I was at the er for medical reasons and the dr that prescribed me xeralto in the first place said mr. Couture I was surprised to hear about the complications you had from the medication. I said excuse me she said well I seen you were admitted in the hospital for a collapsed lung it was due to the medication it caused your lung to bleed that’s why it collapsed. I was shocked to hear her say this I went through living hell only to find out it was the meds that was suppose to help me caused me more problems.

    My mother had A-fib and was put on Xarelto in early 2014, the end of February 2014, she suffered a massive stroke. She went to the hospital and by the grace of God survived this first stroke. While in the hospital, she suffered a GI bleed. The doctors could not stop the bleeding, they packed her and gave her 7 units of blood. This nearly killed her but miraculously she survived. She went to a Rehab facility for about 2 months and came home. One night she had chest pains, I took her to the ER and they did a cardiac Cath on her. While under anesthesia, she suffered another massive stroke on the opposite side thus rendering her into a coma. My mother was a very active 72 year old lady who was still running her own business prior to being on Xarelto. She saw the television commercials and liked the idea of being able to eat greens and to not have the monthly finger sticks like on Coumadin.
    I lost my mother July 25th, 2014. I will never recover, the holidays are horrible and I dread mother’s day.
    To all of you who has lost a loved one to this drug; my heart goes out to you. Please accept my condolences.
    This is a terrible drug and even though my mother will not be brought back, this drug company needs to pay.

    My beautiful mom started taking Xarelto the end of March 2017 because of having AFib she suffered a massive stroke on her brain stem June 1st and just passed away June 10th the doctors said it was a direct result of taking the Xarelto it is even on her death certificate my mom wanted to be on it because she didn’t have to have her blood checked every week and the cases of bruising were much lower than other blood thinning drugs I buried my mom last Thursday. I am extremely pissed off that this drug was even allowed to be on the market and is continuing to be offered to human beings. When your doctor offers to put you on Xarelto he may as well also offer you a copy of your death certificate because that’s what’s going to happen. People say we are lucky to be living in America when the big pharmaceutical companies are running our government none of us are safe. I hope the companies involved in the making and distributing of Xarelto are put out of business it is a very sad thing when the almighty dollar comes before people’s lives

    Good Afternoon, My sister was put on xarelto in May 2018 and had a massive stroke and brain hemmorage on July 5, 2018 – at which time her brain bled until she died July 6, 2018. My sister was 51 years old. Her name was Julie. My life has been changes forever and I cry every minute of every day. I don’t understand how big companies ruin peoples lives like this and they don’t seem to care. I just want the big drug companies to say sorry and admit that they might have been wrong. My sister and I are a year apart and she had many more years until the day she took xarelto.

I hope and pray this is taken off the market and the makers lose every court case as they are nothing but money hungry who care only about there own pocket.

I hope their Board who are profits over people mentality has a physician put one of their loved ones on this snake oil and ruin their lives!!!

    My husband was put in the hospital on May 3rd, 2014 for A-fib. He was there for 3 days and was put on Xarelto 20mg. He went home still feeling bad and he felt bad for a week. By the 9th day of taking Xarelto his defibrillator went off and I took him back to the hospital. He was there for a week before they figured out that he had gastrointestinal bleeding. He was then put in ICU so they could determine what was causing it. After multiple tests they found he had an ulcer the size of a grapefruit that was leaking blood. Because there was no remedy for the bleeding he was in the hospital for another week and given 6 pints of blood. They had problems getting his hemoglobin built up to normal and it was still below normal when he came home. Due to the ulcer caused by xarelto, it took him 6 months to recover eating only grits and popsicles. Since then he has been put on Eliquis and had no other problems. The makers of Xarelto were too quick to put it on the market knowing it would cause massive bleeding. Now they are not admitting responsibility, but settled because of other pending lawsuits. Shame on them and my condolences to those who didn’t survive.

    My mother in law Penola was taking xarelto in 2014 and her health start failing her in 2015 she was constantly back and forth in and out of the hospital from bleeding to the brain. She had numerous of Stokes and she lost her voice and speech behind having too many strokes due to the bleeding to the brain. She was also hospitalize to be given a blood transfusion cause she had lost alot of blood due to taking xarelto. Before my mother in law took that medicine she was perfectly fine. My mother in law was in good health. She didn’t have no problems with her health until she was ordered to take xarelto which is a deadly medicine. My mother in law really started to get sicker and sicker while taking this medication. She passed away in January of 2018. She was on xarelto since 2014 took sick in 2015 and suffered all the way up until her death in 2018. She was constantly having strokes bleeding to the brain and speechless couldn’t talk anymore losing all her weight couldn’t eat sleep or do anything for herself anymore. She had to use a wheelchair to get around to go places such as doctors appointments . She couldn’t walk or talk or feed herself anymore. She couldn’t dress herself or do anything for herself like she use to before she placed on this xarelto medicine. This medication really killed my mother in law at a early age. She was only 73 years old. She died 5 days after her birthday. I guess she was hanging on her death to see one more birthday and then she passed away. I love you mother in law. Hope you received justice for your death. Love your daughter in law. Marie
