Xarelto Class Action / Recours Collectif Xarelto (Bayer)

Merchant Law Group LLP is actively pursuing a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against the drug manufacturer (Bayer) on behalf of Canadian residents who used Xarelto and then suffered from gastrointestinal bleeding, brain hemorrhaging, or similar emergency hospitalizations due to uncontrolled bleeding while taking Xarelto).

This class action has been certified (but has not yet reached a common issues trial), as a certification judge has ruled that there is a common issue for Canadian class members regarding whether Bayer breached a duty of care in marketing Xarelto in Canada (or inter alia, in failing to provide a reasonable warning that it could cause serious and irreversible bleeding).

Litigation of this class action continues and there is current no compensation program or settlement ‘claim form’ being provided to class members. If you wish to be kept advised as to the progress of this case, please complete the contact form below.

Bayer/Johnson and Johnson did not conduct a single population study, animal study, or trial study on Xarelto’s long-term effects. They did not hire a single outside epidemiologist, endocrinologist, hematologist, or nephrologist. They failed to heed medical literature, journals, and trials regarding the effects of this drug.

They also failed to inform the public that there was no antidote for the uncontrolled bleeding that Xarelto could cause. They failed to provide adequate safety warnings.

The link between Xarelto and uncontrolled bleeding has been made abundantly clear.

The number of personal injury claims has reached critical mass. It has now become necessary to group plaintiffs together into a single class so all their claims may be addressed all at once.
