Hemorrhages Caused by Xarelto
Xarelto Lawyers Filing Extensive Bleeding LawsuitsOur Xarelto lawyers are accepting Xarelto lawsuits for hemorrhage caused by Xarelto. Nationwide Xarelto attorneys are reviewing cases of excessive bleeding from Xarelto. In a recent Xareleto lawsuit a widow from Missouri has filed an Xarelto claim against Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Research & Development, Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, et al. to demand that the defendants be held liable for the death of her husband. Dixie A. Smith, surviving spouse of Jay Christopher Smith, filed the complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, where it joins similar lawsuits pending in multidistrict litigation (MDL) No. 2592 before Judge Fallon. The plaintiff contends that had her late husband never taken the defendants’ medication, Xarelto, he would not have suffered a deadly intracerebral hemorrhage. Ms. Smith is suing for compensatory damages for past, present, and future economic expenditures incurred as a result of the decedent’s use of Xarelto, including medical and funeral expenses, loss of earnings, loss of companionship and support, and loss of the prospective net accumulations of an estate. Xarelto Caused A Brain Hemorrhage The decedent’s physician prescribed Xarelto (rivaroxaban) during December of 2012. He continued to take the medication as prescribed until May of 2013. On May 4, the decedent was admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), at which point the hospital staff discontinued his use of Xarelto. He was transferred to the care of a specialty hospital unit on May 18 and on May 22 he died of the intracerebral hemorrhage. According to Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit, her late husband’s passing was a direct result of his use of rivaroxaban, which he reportedly never would have taken had he been fully informed of the risks. Xarelto is an anticoagulant or blood thinner that is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of blood clots. The medication is intended to reduce the risk of life-threatening complications caused by blood clots, including pulmonary embolism and stroke. Xarelto Lawsuits The product liability lawsuit regarding Xarelto draws attention to several reviews and clinical studies of the drug, including a 2012 report issued by The Institute for Safe Medication Practices. This report stated that there had been “356 reports of serious, disabling, or fatal injury in which rivaroxaban was the primary suspect drug. The report more than doubled from the previous quarter total of 128 cases.” The organization brought these statistics to the attention of the defendants, who reportedly advised The Institute for Safe Medication Practices that the data did not reflect any safety issues that required action. Ms. Smith’s Xarelto lawsuit alleges that the defendants prioritized profit over patient safety. Her complaint further claims that the defendants concealed their knowledge of the severe and life-threatening complications of Xarelto from consumers and the medical community. The lawsuit notes that the pharmaceutical giants failed to highlight the risks of uncontrollable bleeding events, nor did they provide medical protocols for stabilizing patients suffering from these bleeding events. Xarelto had been marketed as a replacement for an older blood thinner, warfarin (Coumadin). Warfarin has been used for years for patients who may be at a higher risk of blood clots. However, patients taking warfarin required regular medical monitoring and dietary restrictions, which Xarelto had promised to eliminate. Our Xarelto lawyers have been reviewing claims for excessive bleeding like these. Xarelto lawsuits are now consolidated in an MDL because many people have suffered injuries of a same type from Xarelto. Speak to an Xarelto lawyer today.

It has become apparent that there is a large number of drugs and devices class actions that have been filed against manyfacturers that have targeted women.
We can start with the Dow Corning siicone breast implant class action of years ago. Women are still suffering today. The Dow Corning Trust just recently launched a silicone breast implant explant program. The leaking silicone and bursting implants lead to toxicity related immune system diseases like lupus and fibromylagia and other immune deficiency diseases. Women to this date are still suffering from their Dow silicone Breast Implants and the Dow Corning settlement trust is stll living out payments like the new breast explant program.
Fosamax was supposed to cure osteoporosis but ended up causing femur fractures.Then we have Yaz and Yasmine birth control pills. Young women were having their lives altered by pre-mature strokes, pulmonary embolisms, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots and heart attacks. Many girls harmed were barely starting a college life.
History moves along to the metal on metal and metal componednt hip replacements like the DePuy Pinnacle and ASR Hip Replacement and the Stryker Rejuvinate and ABG II Modular Stems. These are a metal on metal hip replacement recalled for their need for revision surgery. These hip replacements failed in women more then men. The smaller frame of a women makes the device more prone to problems in the female structure.
NuvRing has been another disaster for women causing:
blood clots in women
cerebral thrombosis in women
deep vein thrombosis
heart attack in women
retinal thrombosis in women
stroke or cerebral hemorrhage
thrombophlebitis and venous thrombosis with or without embolism
toxic shock syndrome
Fosamax for osteoporosis actually causes what it is prescribed to fix , femur fractures.

Many victims of these failed devices have had to undergo revision surgery to remove and replace them long before they reached the end of their expected 15-20 year lifespan. On March 18, 2013, Stryker filed a brief with the JPML, agreeing that coordination of lawsuits involving the recalled devices was appropriate.
