On November 16, 2015, a Status Conference was held in Louisiana regarding Xarelto where lawyers for all parties discussed how they came to find the facts they wish to present before the court. These conferences are expected to continue on into April of 2016. The Court will continue to move the cases towards resolution.
Likewise, the similar case being heard in Pennsylvania has a hearing date on December 1, 2015, to discuss moving forward in the litigation after the Judge denied the Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss on November 9, 2015.
Both Courts are carefully monitoring the discovery process where the Defendants have been ordered to produce all relevant documents. That collection of documents is expected to continue on into April 2016. Concerns regarding the statute of limitations continue to arise as the Defendants attempt to have the cases dismissed based on grounds that they fall outside the statute.
These general laws provide a time frame for individuals across the nation to file a suit in Court and can vary from state to state. Each individual statute starts on the day the injury occurred or on the date that the injury was discovered and cannot be altered. Because many potential cases have been dismissed based on the time of filing lawsuit and the respective statute’s requirements, it is very important to seek legal help immediately if you have suffered severe bleeding after taking Xarelto.
To date there is not a known coagulant that counters Xarelto’s blood thinning effect. This can result in uncontrollable bleeding. We will continue to post news about the status of the Xarelto lawsuit as the information becomes available.
If you or a loved one have suffered severe bleeding after taking Xarelto or Pradaxa, call the Goldwater Law Firm today.
