Xarelto Lawsuit Lawyer

Why Are Xarelto Lawsuits Being Filed?

Patients who took the blood thinner, Xarelto may have suffered additional injuries or serious side effects that have drastically changed the quality of their life. According to a Xarelto Lawsuit Lawyer, around 20,000 people have been negatively affected by this prescription medication.

Our team’s position is this:

  • Xarelto is a defective and dangerous drug
  • The makers of Xarelto failed to effectively test the safety of this medication
  • Xarelto’s packaging did not warn consumers of the increased risks (see below)
  • The drug’s safety was misrepresented in marketing materials, including commercials and other advertisements

About Xarelto

Approved by the FDA in 2011, Xarelto’s makers touted the drug as “the first and only one-a-day prescription blood thinner.” Intended to help patients with cardiovascular conditions, including atrial fibrillation, the medication was designed to reduce the risk of stroke.

In 2016 alone, the drug pulled-in over $2 billion for the big pharmacy executives, and sales continue to climb worldwide.

Unfortunately, the drug also has a narrow therapeutic index, which means the difference between a safe dose and a dangerous one is small. Too much of this drug can cause extreme side effects, and too little can cause serious injuries.

Xarelto Side Effects & Injuries

Several juries have awarded cancer survivors and their families multi-million dollar verdicts after a Talcum Powder Lawsuit Lawyer filed a claim on their behalf. The most common injuries mentioned in a talcum powder lawsuit includes:

  • Internal Bleeding – Xarelto has been linked to serious internal injuries, including gastrointestinal hemorrhages, nose bleeds, unusual bleeding, low blood pressure, and other potentially serious side effects.
  • Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) – This is a severe skin condition commonly linked to Xarelto. In many cases, this condition can cause the loss of fluids, and expose the body to serious infections.
  • Unexplained Bruising – Patients taking Xarelto have often reported unexplained bruising on their bodies, which can also be a sign of more serious conditions that may be exacerbated by the drug.
  • Cerebral Hemorrhage – Any excessive bleeding in the brain can cause serious consequences, even death. Many Xarelto Lawsuits recognize this as an unsafe side effect of the drug.

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

My attorney and his Assistant helped me through my injury case. It was a real pleasure having their legal advice available to me in a time when I couldn’t think straight or even figure out what to do after my accident injury.
