Xarelto, also known as Rivaroxaban, was approved in 2011 by the FDA and was widely thought to be a more convenient alternative for the most commonly prescribed blood-thinning drug, warfarin. Warfarin is another anticoagulent (blood thinner) like Xarelto, and has been used for decades. If a patient suffers from internal bleeding while taking warfarin, that drug’s anticoagulant effects can be stopped effectively with vitamin K, and stop the bleeding. Unfortunately Xarelto has no known reversal agent when it comes to bleeding. Obviously this may increase your risk for major internal bleeding, which can result in permanent organ damage or death.
We offer free consultations for individuals that suffered from these side effects of Xarelto. We are experienced in dealing with these types of dangerous drug cases and you pay us nothing unless we help settle your case.
Many individuals experiencing blood clots or strokes began taking the blood thinner Xarelto to reduce these risks, not aware of the uncontrolled, irreversible bleeding that would follow. Filing a lawsuit was also not on the agenda of the patients affected either—until now.
Many Xarelto injury lawsuits have been already been filed and the experienced attorneys at G&E can help you with these types of claims. To find out more about how you can get legal help with this serious matter please email us or call our firm toll free at 844-256-6932.
