Our attorneys are available to review possible Xarelto lawsuits on behalf of individuals who have suffered from serious side effects of the drug. The most dangerous side effect associated with the blood thinner is uncontrollable bleeding. While all blood thinners share the same potential risk, some researchers and medical professionals have expressed concern over the Xarelto's safety.
Serious side effects and deaths have already been linked to Xarelto (rivaroxaban), which was approved for use in 2011. If you or someone you love has suffered from a serious internal bleeding event or another serious side effect while using rivaroxaban, contact our attorneys to find out if you qualify to file a Xarelto lawsuit.
Reasons for Filing a Xarelto Lawsuit
Lawsuits may be filed on behalf of patients who have suffered the ill side effects of Xarelto as well as the surviving family members of those who have died as a result of these side effects. You may be eligible to file a lawsuit for the following related side effects:
- Death from uncontrollable internal bleeding
- Intestinal bleeding
- Brain hemorrhaging
- Rectal bleeding
Reports of serious blood clots have also been reported by some users.
Why the Concern over Xarelto Internal Bleeding
Members of the health care community have expressed concern about Xarelto's safety, because like the similar blood thinner Pradaxa, there is no anecdote for Xarelto bleeding events. This means that once internal bleeding occurs, doctors may not be able to stop it, drastically increasing the risk for death. Because of this, many people are concerned that Xarelto may be as dangerous as Pradaxa.
How a Lawsuit Can Help You
Filing a lawsuit while you are sick or shortly after you just lost a loved one may sound like more of a hassle than a benefit. By filing a lawsuit, however, you may be able to recover financial compensation for past and present medical bills as well as continued care. Financial compensation can also help you meet your financial responsibilities while you are out of work or while you are caring for an ill loved one.
