Almost £600m in Xarelto compensation settlements

medical

Xarelto compensation settlements have been agreed in the sum of $775m (which is almost £600m) for some 25,000 cases being pursued in the U.S.

The Injury Lawyers have been fighting for justice for UK users of the medication, that’s also known as Rivaroxaban. Although the settlement is for the U.S. only, we’re pleased to see it has happened.

The settlement has been agreed without any admission of liability from the two companies behind the drug, Bayer AG and Johnson & Johnson. They reportedly maintain that the drug is fine for use and strongly deny the allegations that have been made against them. That includes previous allegations of a “cover-up” where important information was reportedly withheld from regulators.

Xarelto compensation settlements is great news

News of the $775m in Xarelto compensation settlements is great to hear. It should hopefully serve as some form of justice for those who have suffered problems. Some patients have suffered internal bleeding, including bleeds on the brain. Some patients have died during use of the drug as well.

For a long time, the safety of the drug has been in question. Although the co-developers of the medication, Bayer and J&J, appear to be standing by its safety, no one can ignore the thousands who have reported problems.

Will the Xarelto compensation settlements help the UK cases?

The U.S. Xarelto compensation settlements don’t necessarily have a direct impact on the UK cases we’re fighting for justice in. The UK and the U.S. have separate legal jurisdictions, so we can’t really rely on the settlement over there to have a direct impact for people here.

It’s also been made without any admission of liability as well.

That being said, it’s positive that a settlement has been reached. It’s encouraging news for victims here in the UK, but there’s still plenty to be done over here. We still have to prove our cases in the UK jurisdiction, and that can be harder when compared to the U.S.

If you live in England or Wales and you have suffered problems from the use of Xarelto / Rivaroxaban, make sure you get in touch for help as soon as you can. We may be able to offer you No Win, No Fee representation for a claim for compensation.
