Monday, February 16, 2015 - National Xarelto attorneys with the Onder Law Firm have consulted with hundreds of individuals regarding their experiences with severe bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke possibly related to the pharmaceutical drug Xarelto. People seeking legal representation for bleeding incidents often wonder whether Xarelto lawsuits are class action lawsuits; attorneys handling product liability lawsuits have added new information to their website to explain the answer to this common question.
Jim Onder explains, "People worry that if their Xarelto lawsuit is going to be swept into a large national class action, their experience will become a number on a tally list and any potential compensation they receive will not take into account their particular circumstances. These are people who have suffered immensely, or who have recently lost a loved one. We want the public to know that Xarelto lawsuits are not part of a class action. Furthermore, each and every claim matters."
In fact, Xarelto lawsuits have been consolidated, but as a multidistrict litigation (MDL) rather than a class action. "Multidistrict litigation is a legal process that allows certain elements of these cases - which do have some significant overlap, in that they are making the same types of allegations against a set group of defendants - to be completed all at once, in an efficient manner," says Onder. "Additionally, we often find that consolidating individuals‘ cases together through MDL yields strength to oppose a large corporation."
The consolidation of Xarelto lawsuits was ordered by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) during December of 2013; now known as Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) Products Liability Litigation (MDL No. 2592), the lawsuits have been consolidated in U.S. District Court in Louisiana, according to court documents. Despite an argument from the defense that differing medical histories of the plaintiffs made consolidation unfavorable, the panel deemed there was a significant common issue across all Xarelto lawsuits: according to court documents, persons having filed a Xarelto lawsuit allege that the drug‘s warning for side effects such as internal bleeding and other risk information contained on the product label was inadequate.
