The manufacturers, Bayer Healthcare and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. are defendants in various Xarelto lawsuits, which allege that the effects of the anticoagulant drug included increased risks of fatal internal bleeding. Claims against these companies state that the blood-thinning effects cannot be reversed by utilizing Vitamin K, unlike the traditional blood thinner, warfarin. Hence, the lawsuits argue, there are no effective means to stop bleeding in Xarelto users and in the event of an emergency can result in serious or fatal injuries from cerebral hemorrhaging and gastrointestinal bleeding.
Pharmaceutical companies have a both a legal and moral duty to ensure that their drugs are safe for use. The Hotze Runkle law firm is working hard for families who suffered a loss or were hurt by the drug.
