FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO GET COMPENSATION
Xarelto lawsuits were filed starting in 2014, and litigation is currently in progress. To date, Bayer and J&J have not offered any settlements. Some think that discussions about settlements may start in 2016, and trials will proceed if agreements are not reached.
After the discovery process is completed for several of the first Xarelto lawsuits, the verdicts will provide guidelines for possible settlements. These are known as “bellwether cases.” Here are some of the factors that determine a settlement:
- Type of injury
- Length of time suffered and impact
- Care needed and changes in relationships
- Medical expenses incurred
- Lost income and inability to hold a job
- Funeral expenses and compensation for dependents
As of mid-2015, approximately 2,000 Xarelto lawsuits had been filed. As of April 2016, a new report indicated the more than 4,500 MDL cases were pending.
