The number has almost doubled just within the last few months. Now, according to Digital Journal, more than 2,800 cases have been consolidated in the Eastern District of Louisiana, with an additional 600 lawsuits consolidated by the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (MDL 2592).
The lawsuits include claims of serious health problems, long hospital stays, and even death as a result of uncontrollable bleeding events. According to experts, there is no known antidote at this time.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent announcement, “We expected the Xarelto litigation to pick up steam, and with more lawsuits continuing to be filed, it seems that it’s happening. We are following this litigation closely, and we want to remind patients who have been injured by the blood thinner that we are committed to helping them.”
