The Xarelto lawsuits have now risen to approximately 1,700 filed cases against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson's subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceutical Division. The lawsuits include claims of serious health problems and even death as a result of using the blood thinner, Xarelto, because of uncontrollable bleeding events. According to experts, there is no known antidote at this time. Due to the ongoing Xarelto MDL, Legal-Bay, a law cash advance company, is reaffirming the fact that they are sufficiently prepared to handle large Xarelto pre-settlement funding requests for those who have experienced complications from using the blood thinner.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent announcement in the Xarelto multidistrict litigation, "In a short amount of time, the lawsuits filed against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson's Janssen Pharmaceutical Division have risen to over 1,700 cases. With the first bellwether trial dates in the Xarelto litigation now set for 2017, we urge patients who have been injured by the blood thinner to contact a lawyer immediately if they have not done so already, as this litigation could drag on for years."
