Xarelto Class Action / Recours Collectif Xarelto (Bayer)

Took Xarelto to manage Afib or other conditions, only to suffer from gastrointestinal bleeding, brain hemorrhaging, or other serious bleeding events?

In America, this class action suit was worth $775 million dollars. Now it’s time for Canadian patients to get their share of the damages they suffered after putting their trust in Bayer AG and Johnson and Johnson. 

 

Call (306) 653-7756 

Prior to the $775 million dollar settlement there were over 25,000 American lawsuits alleging that Bayer AG and Johnson and Johnson knew about the dangers of Xarelto and chose to market and sell the drug anyway, regardless of the danger to the public. The side effects included gastrointestinal bleeding, brain hemorrhaging, surgical wound leaks, infections, and other complications. 

Both companies displayed negligence by failing to adequately research the drug. They also failed to inform the public that there was no antidote for uncontrolled bleeding called by Xarelto until 2018. They failed to provide adequate safety warnings. 

Help hold them accountable by joining the Canadian Xarelto class action case.

 

FAQ

What are the symptoms of Xarelto side effects?

You may be suffering from Xarelto side effects if you experience any of the following:

  • Severe or uncontrollable bleeding
  • Pink or brown urine
  • Tar-like, bloody, or black stools
  • Bleeding gums
  • Nosebleeds
  • Arm or leg pain
  • Coughing blood
  • Vomiting blood, or vomiting a substance that looks like coffee grounds
  • Dizziness

Don’t try to make guesses based on these symptoms. See a doctor right away if you need help. You’ll need an official diagnosis to join the class action suit.

 

How does a class action lawsuit work?

When the number of personal injury settlements reaches critical mass it often becomes necessary to group plaintiffs together into a single class so all their claims may be addressed at once.

The result is often a powerful message sent to major corporations who don’t listen to anything else. Being required to pay millions of dollars for their actions often serves as a deterrent to repeat performances. In addition, judges may order reparative action, such as making demands that the harmful drug be pulled off the shelf.
