Anticoagulants and antiplatelet drugs are the two major blood thinner medication types that doctors prescribe to patients. These medications effectively reduce blood clot-related health risks in atrial fibrillation (a-fib), deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) patients. Blood thinners can also help prevent strokes in patients who recently underwent knee or hip replacement surgery.
While Xarelto, Eliquis, and Pradaxa lawsuits share similar allegations, courts nationwide handle all drug litigation on a case-by-case basis. Below is a breakdown of each litigation and what victims of these specific blood thinners need to know when filing a claim.
A Xarelto victim’s family filed the first wrongful death lawsuit against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen Pharmaceuticals in April 2014. Since then, a federal judicial panel approved consolidating at least 2,800 claims under a multi-district litigation.
Plaintiffs who join Xarelto MDL 2592 report severe side effects such as internal bleeding, brain hemorrhage, rectal bleeding, ischemic and embolic strokes. Family members are also filing wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of deceased Xarelto patients. No FDA-approved Xarelto or Eliquis antidote existed before May 2018, putting many patients at risk for bleeding out.
If you or a loved one experienced uncontrolled bleeding while taking Xarelto, it’s not too late to file a claim! You can get a fast, free and easy case evaluation online in less than two minutes using the form on our page.
Eliquis lawsuits gained national attention in July 2015 when a woman sued drug makers Bristol-Myers Squibb and Pfizer on her late husband’s behalf. Until May 2018, no Eliquis reversal agent existed to prevent death from uncontrolled bleeding events. Since then, similar cases from patients reporting serious Eliquis side effects across the country received approval to join MDL 2754. These side effects include internal bleeding, brain hemorrhage, rectal bleeding, and death.
Eliquis litigation should follow a similar path as the blood thinner lawsuits filed against Pradaxa and Xarelto. If you suffered serious side effects after starting Eliquis, you may be eligible to file a claim against the drug’s manufacturer. Take two minutes to complete your free case review online today.
In March 2012, a patient filed the first Pradaxa lawsuit against manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim for failing to warn patients about internal bleeding risks and lack of available antidote. Later that year, a federal judge approved MDL consolidation for thousands of Pradaxa claims nationwide.
In May 2014, Boehringer Ingelheim agreed to pay $650 million to resolve 4,100 federal Pradaxa lawsuits. Victims received compensation for various side effects related to uncontrolled bleeding.
Since settling initial litigation, more Pradaxa victims came forward to file product liability claims. Allegations from plaintiffs filing recent lawsuits include internal bleeding, brain hemorrhage, rectal bleeding and even death, in some cases.
Thousands of Xarelto, Eliquis, and Pradaxa patients sustained irreparable damages due to uncontrolled bleeding and other related side effects. Anyone suffering from adverse events while taking these drugs may qualify to file a blood thinner claim for compensation.
