Over 9,000 lawsuits are in progress concerning the makers and distributers of Xarelto, a blood thinner that is produced by both Bayer AG and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, the latter being a subsidiary of the drug company Johnson & Johnson. Over 7,000 of these Xarelto lawsuits have been filed in Louisiana alone. Another 1,000 cases have been filed in Delaware, and an additional 1,000 filed in a state court in Pennsylvania. The plaintiffs of Xarelto claim the drug caused bleeding to the brain or intestine, which then lead to more severe side effects. These include hospitalization and death. The plaintiffs are accusing the defendants of not warning their patients of the severe dangers of the drug.
