Patients generally expect that the medications they are prescribed are not only effective, but safe. The family member of an alleged victim of a potentially defective drug says that a blood thinner currently on the market isn't safe. In fact, she claims it caused her aunt's death. Family members of California victims who may have taken the same medication might find this story to be a familiar one.
Both Bayer Corp. and Janssen Research & Development have been named in a lawsuit concerning Xarelto, an anticoagulant. One woman has pointed to this blood thinner as being the cause of her aunt's death. Apparently, she isn't the only one who thinks so, as other victims have reportedly had their deaths pinned to the drug.
