What’s the Problem?
July 12, 2017 – Plaintiffs Thomas Walsh and Joseph Roman claim that the defendants hid knowledge of the dangerous side effects of Xarelto, which were caused by the companies failing to conduct adequate safety studies on the drug.
“Upon information and belief, defendants concealed and failed to completely disclose its knowledge that Xarelto was associated with or could cause life-threatening bleeding as well as its knowledge that they had failed to fully test or study said risk,” the suits claim.
In 2013, Bayer and Janssen spent $11 million on a marketing campaign that included direct-to-consumer advertising which overstated the effectiveness of Xarelto in preventing stroke and systemic embolism, and failed to warn that there is no antidote to reverse bleeding events, according to the lawsuits.
Walsh and Roman are suing negligence, strict products liability, breach of warranties, fraudulent misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, negligent misrepresentation and fraud and deceit, and are seeking compensatory damages against the defendants.
Both suits were filed in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of New York. The cases are: Thomas Walsh and Cindy Walsh v. Janssen Research & Development LLC et al., case number 156162/2017, and Joseph Roman and Rosa Roman v. Janssen Research & Development LLC et al., case number 156166/2017.
