Xarelto Lawsuits Reaching 15,000
A multi-district litigation in Louisiana currently holds over 14,000 Xarelto lawsuits filed against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals. This figure does not include another 1,000 lawsuits that are currently pending in a mass tort program in Pennsylvania.
Four Xarelto trials are scheduled to begin in March 2017. The companies could potentially face an even larger payout to plaintiffs based on the outcomes of these trials.
