Wrongful Death Claimed In Florida Xarelto Lawsuit

A Xarelto lawsuit filed by the wife of a man who died after taking the drug claims manufacturers did not warn the public of serious health risks.

According to, a wrongful death lawsuit has been filed in Florida against the manufacturers and distributors of the popular blood thinner Xarelto.  Xarelto Side Effects: Uncontrollable Internal Bleeding Xarelto is an anticoagulant drug (or blood thinner) that is prescribed to prevent the risks of blood clotting in individuals with Atrial Fibrillation, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and other related conditions. The drug came onto the US market in 2011 as an alternative to other anticoagulants, such as Warfarin, and quickly became the leading blood thinner in America. According the official Xarelto website, there are over 11 million prescriptions of Xarelto in the US, and strong sales growth is expected to continue. However, studies have recently linked the use of Xarelto to uncontrollable internal bleeding, which can lead to serious injury and death. Details of This Xarelto Lawsuit This Xarelto lawsuit was filed by a Florida woman on June 23rd, 2014 in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida under case number 9:14CV80831. According to the complaint, the plaintiff's husband was prescribed Xarelto on January 10th, 2012 to reduce the risk of blood clots and deep vein thrombosis from atrial fibrillation. The plaintiff's husband later suffered from a subdural hemorrhage, or internal bleeding near the brain, and was hospitalized for several days. Unfortunately, the plaintiff's husband died on June 18th, 2012. Among other allegations in this specific case, the plaintiff has brought claims against pharmaceutical companies Bayer AG and Johnson under several counts including:
