Temple Xarelto Lawsuit Lawyer
Xarelto is Now Linked to Internal Bleeding and Wrongful Death
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is blood thinner jointly developed by Bayer HealthCare, the makers of aspirin, and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. Over four million prescriptions for the drug Xarelto have been issued to a wide array of individuals at risk of stroke, deep vein thrombosis, blood clots, and pulmonary embolism.
While all blood thinners carry some risk of internal bleeding, Xarelto has been linked to an extensive risk of internal bleeding in patients. Further, the manufacturer of Xarelto has failed to provide adequate warnings to physicians and the medical community, as well as patients.
Zinda Law Group is currently evaluating claims for a Xarelto lawsuit. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed due to bleeding complications while using the drug Xarelto, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Our experienced attorney team represents clients in even the most complex of defective and dangerous drug lawsuits.
Xarelto Risks and Side Effects
For decades, the drug Warfarin has been the go to anticoagulant. The makers of Xarelto promoted the drug as more effective than Warfarin with the additional benefit of requiring less frequent monitoring. However, what drug makers failed to disclose is the lack of a reversing agent in the event of bleeding problems.
Reports show that when a Xarelto user experiences a surgery or accident that causes bleeding, the bleeding can become uncontrollable because no reversing agent exists for the drug. Previous blood thinners could readily be reversed in the event of a bleeding emergency.
Some recognized side effects of Xarelto include:
- Internal bleeding
- Brain hemorrhaging
- Gastrointestinal bleeding
- Kidney bleeding
- Death resulting from bleeding out
Hundreds of lawsuits have currently been filed against the makers of Xarelto alleging that the drug was dangerous by design, came with inadequate warnings, and should have been recalled. Several lawsuits have been consolidated into Multi District Litigation.
This allows for expedited litigation, while still allowing plaintiffs to bring their own individual action with independent damage and liability issues. These Xarelto lawsuits revolve around bleeding injuries that required hospitalization as well as wrongful deaths linked to Xarelto side effects.
Xarelto’s predecessor, Pradaxa, was the subject of much litigation in recent years due to its association with internal bleeding and stroke. Numerous Pradaxa patients who were injured by the drug have received substantial settlements. Attorneys and drug safety experts are now watching Xarelto follow along the same path as more and more individuals report serious and life threatening injuries while taking the drug.
If you or a loved one has experienced a bleeding related injury while taking Xarelto, it is important that you take action as soon as possible. Your time to file a lawsuit against the negligent drug makers of Xarelto is limited. Do not shoulder the financial burden of your injury alone; contact a licensed attorney today.
