When we speak to victims of Xarelto, one of most common questions that they have is what kind of damages can I receive? Here is a review of the major categories of damages and the nature of recovery that might be available to you:
ECONOMIC. If a manufacturer makes medicine that is unreasonably safe or fails to come with adequate warnings or instructions, then it is liable to you for all of your out-of-pocket expense. These include such things as medical bills (for surgery, doctors visits, prescriptions, etc.), lost wages due to missed work, and any property damage if relevant.
NON-ECONOMIC. If a medicine harmed you because it was unsafe or came with insufficient instruction, then the manufacturer is liable to you for all of your non-economic losses including, but not limited to, pain and suffering, loss of a normal life, disability, and other intangible reductions in the quality of life.
PUNITIVE. Punitive damages are designed to punish a defendant and deter similar wrongdoing in the future. In products liability cases, such as those involving Xarelto, plaintiffs must be able to demonstrate that the manufacturer had knowledge or reckless disregard for the plaintiff's injuries. This is extremely hard to prove but many plaintiffs are attempting to do just that all over the country.
