A complaint filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas alleges that Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer “fervently marketed” the anticoagulant drug, Xarelto, “with no regard to the accuracy and misrepresentations of their misleading advertising”. Della Wise sued the makers of Xarelto on behalf of her aunt, Mattie Edgin, who allegedly died after taking the blood thinner.

The complaint filed by Wise goes on to state, 

“Due to the defective nature of Xarelto, persons who were prescribed and ingested Xarelto, for even a brief period of time, including the Ingesting Decedent herein, were at increased risk for developing life-threatening bleeds. Due to the flawed formulation of Xarelto, which according to defendants does not require regular blood monitoring or frequent doctor follow-up, raises concerns about the risk of stroke, bleeding, and blood clots if not taken properly or absorbed properly, particularly in patients with poor renal function.”

Even more significantly, the complaint alleges that The Institute for Safe Medication Practices identified 356 reports of serious, disabling, or fatal injury in which rivaroxaban (Xarelto) was the primary suspect drug.

Wise is seeking punitive damages from the makers of Xarelto for fraud, wrongful death,consumer law violations, negligence, failure to warn, product liability, unreasonable marketing of a dangerous drug, and breach of warranty.
