What Is the Lawsuit Against Xarelto?


Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a novel oral anticoagulant (blood thinner) prescribed to treat vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) and reduce the risk of stroke, DVT and PE. Advertised as a convenient alternative to warfarin, Xarelto has been found to cause severe side effects, such as uncontrollable bleeding and even death.

The Xarelto injury lawyers at Wood Law Firm LLP are passionate about helping drug injury victims protect their rights and fight for the maximum compensation they need to get their lives back on track.


Despite thousands of reports of bleeding and fatalities, Xarelto brought in $2 billion for Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson and Bayer. Xarelto lawsuits are filed for various reasons, one being that Xarelto prioritized profits over patient health.

Across the country, Xarelto injury lawsuits claim that Bayer and Johnson & Johnson:

  • Failed to issue a recall or update a warning after it became clear that many patients suffered serious and life-threatening injuries.
  • Sold an unreasonably defective and dangerous drug
  • Encouraged doctors to use the more dangerous and expensive drug through an aggressive marketing campaign
  • Withheld information about the lack of an effective reversal agent
  • Failed to adequately warn against the risk of excessive bleeding

If you or someone you love has experienced uncontrollable bleeding or another serious side effect after using Xarelto, you may be able to seek compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and more. Additionally, if you lost a loved one due to Xarelto, you may be able to seek further damages in a wrongful death claim.
