An important deadline in the Xarelto® MDL is rapidly approaching. In Case Management Order No. 10 issued on March 25, 2019 Judge Fallon set out the supplemental information requirements for cases to be produced within 75 days of the date of the order. This information includes the date of the injured person’s first use of Xarelto, the date of the first injury or bleeding event related to Xarelto, the number of days the person was hospitalized for their injury and whether the claimant was taking two other anti-coagulant medications at the time of the injury, among other claim-related information.
As stated in the order, neither the initial registration of the claim nor providing the supplemental information means the claim will qualify for the settlement or that the plaintiff is committing to participating in the settlement.
