Why File An Xarelto Lawsuit
Xarelto lawsuits are consolidated lawsuits for people who have suffered serious health complications after using this prescription anticoagulant. Lawsuits have been filed against drug makers Bayer Healthcare and Johnson & Johnson. These lawsuits claim that the drug manufacturers failed to properly inform you about serious and potentially life-threatening risks associated with Xarelto.
What is Xarelto?
- internal bleeding,
- gastrointestinal bleeding
- Brain bleeding
- other severe bleeding events.
Xarelto is a blood thinner approved in 2011 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the prevention of blood clots. It is manufactured by Bayer and marketed in the U.S. by Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals. If you suffer from atrial fibrillation you may have been prescribed Xarelto because it can reduce the risk of stroke. It prevents blood clots in patients who have undergone knee and hip replacements as well. Clots that move to the lungs, brain and legs can potentially lead to strokes and pulmonary embolism and result in death.

A lawsuit has been filed against Cook Medical by a woman from Texas for injury from the Cook Celect® Vena Cava Filter.
Catherine M. Maxwell, was implanted with a temporary IVC filter at St. David Medical Center in Austin, Texas by Dr. Joseph Imsais on January 8, 2010.
She accuses Cook Medical of negligence for selling a defective medical device and failing to warn about serious risks.
Her case has been centralized with more than 650 similar lawsuits against Cook Medical. The lawsuits are part of a Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2570) overseen by Judge Richard Young.
The Celect is a retrievable IVC filter that should be removed within 29-54 days after implantation, according to the FDA. The longer it remains implanted, the higher the risk of complications.
In one study of 27 patients who were implanted with the Celect, all of them had some degree of perforation after 71 days. In another study, Celect was linked to a 43% risk of vena cava perforation after an average of two months.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana (Indianapolis Division) on August 4, 2016 — Case No. 1:16-CV-2095-RLY-TAB.

IVC Filters, Vena Cava Filters, Blood Clot Filter lawyers in West Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton and Deerfield Beach are alerting seniors to the dangers of the Bard and Cook IVC Filters.
IVC filters are implanted to capture blood clots and prevent them from causing pulmonary embolisms and strokes by lodging in the lungs or brain. However, IVC filters have some dangerous side effects and IVC Filter lawsuits are being filed.
Complications include: vein and organ perforation, migration and breakage, broken pieces of filters traveling through the body causing organ damage. IVC filters are meant to be temporary.
Risk of Adverse Events with Long Term Use According To The FDA
AUDIENCE: Emergency Medicine, Surgery
ISSUE: Since 2005, the FDA has received 921 device adverse event reports involving IVC filters, of which 328 involved device migration, 146 involved embolizations (detachment of device components), 70 involved perforation of the IVC, and 56 involved filter fracture. Some of these events led to adverse clinical outcomes in patients. These types of events may be related to a retrievable filter remaining in the body for long periods of time, beyond the time when the risk of pulmonary embolism (PE) has subsided.
The FDA is concerned that these retrievable IVC filters, intended for short-term placement, are not always removed once a patient’s risk for PE subsides. Known long term risks associated with IVC filters include but are not limited to lower limb deep vein thrombosis (DVT), filter fracture, filter migration, filter embolization and IVC perforation.
BACKGROUND: FDA reviewed the literature and is conducting quantitative decision analysis modeling to evaluate the change in the risk/benefit profile after retrievable IVC filter implantation over time. More information about FDA’s decision analysis model including risk/benefit implantation time frame suggestions will be made available in an update to this communication as well as in a future publication in a peer-reviewed medical journal.
RECOMMENDATION: FDA recommends that implanting physicians and clinicians responsible for the ongoing care of patients with retrievable IVC filters consider removing the filter as soon as protection from PE is no longer needed.
FDA encourages all physicians involved in the treatment and follow-up of IVC filter recipients to consider the risks and benefits of filter removal for each patient. If a patient has a retrievable IVC filter that should be removed based on his or her individual risk/benefit profile, the primary care physician and/or those providing ongoing patient care should refer the patient for IVC filter removal when feasible and clinically indicated.

Bard IVC Filter Helpline
The Bard IVC Filter Helpline has just found out from our IVC Filter lawyers that the IVC blood clot capture filter lawsuits are increasing.
NBC News has just televised a news report about the safety issues associated with the G2 Retrievable IVC Filter. Tje IVC Filter is a blood clot filter marketed by C.R. Bard, Inc. IVC filters, such as the G2 and Recovery filters , are used to prevent pulmonary embolism in patients for whom anticoagulant medications are not appropriate. These wire implants are placed in in the inferior vena cava. This is the body’s largest blood vessel. They catch blood clots before they can travel to the heart and lungs.
IVC Filter Injury
The Recovery IVC filter had been associated with more than 300 non-fatal injuries and 27 deaths before it was replaced with the G2 series. Among other things, the report disclosed a confidential study commissioned by Bard in 2004 which linked the Recovery IVC filter to higher rates of death, fracture and movement compared to its competitors. Like the G2, Bard opted not to recall the Recovery filter, and instead allowed it to remain on the market for three years. Roughly 34,000 devices were sold.
IVC Filter Lawsuits
Court records indicate that at least 72 Bard IVC filter lawsuits involving the G2 and Recovery products are now pending in a multidistrict litigation underway in the U.S. District Court, District of Arizona. Among other things, plaintiffs claim that Bard was aware that the Recovery and G2 IVC filters were associated with high rates of fracture, migration and tilting, which may result in perforation of the inferior vena cava, embolization and other life-threatening complications.

What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is an anticoagulant used to prevent stroke in Cardiac patients or after hip surgery to safeguard against severe blood clots. It is often used as an alternative to the medicine warfarin. If a person who is using Xarelto requires unexpected surgery, from a fall for instance, the physician treating the patient may have a far more difficult time stopping serious bleeding, because the patient’s blood is unable to clot. Xarelto can Cause excessive bleeding and a brain hemorrhage.
Did you take Xarelto and develop uncontrolled bleeding or another serious complication? Did you lose a grandparent, parent, sister, husband due to Xarelto extensive bleeding, Internal Bleeding, Blood Clots, Embolism, or Hemorrhaging?
What Are the Symptoms of Brain Bleeding?
The symptoms of a brain hemorrhage can vary. They depend on the location of the bleeding, the severity of the bleeding, and the amount of tissue affected. Symptoms may develop suddenly or over time
Xarelto Multi District Litigation
The Xarelto MDL is a consolidation of several individual Xarelto lawsuits into a single action in a single court. Generally, the plaintiffs in these Xarelto lawsuits blame Xarelto for dangerous episodes of gastrointestinal bleeding and other types of excessive blood loss. They allege the risks involved in Xarelto bleeding are too high for the drug to be considered safe. They also accuse the manufacturers of Xarelto of failing to properly address those risks in their labeling and marketing.
