A Philadelphia jury awarded the first Plaintiff’s verdict against the manufacturers of the popular blood thinner Xarelto. Commonly advertised on TV, Xarelto has unfortunately been known to cause excess internal bleeding in some patients. This has resulted in some clients suffering severe, life-impacting injuries (including death in some instances). Plaintiffs have alleged the Defendants knew or should have known about such dangers, but failed to warn consumers. Although not representing the clients in this trial, Jacobs & Crumplar and D’Onofrio Firm LLC are currently representing several other clients in Xarelto cases pending in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.
The jury’s verdict is important, not only for the compensation it provides these worthy clients and the message it sends to the defendants, but it is also the first Plaintiff victory in a Xarelto case anywhere in the country (the previous three jury trials were defense verdicts). If you or someone you know has suffered from taking Xarelto, please contact Jacobs & Crumplar as strict statute of limitations governs such possible claims.
