Reasons Why Xarelto Victims Should approach Lawsuits

Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a blood thinner drug manufactured by Bayer AG and Janssen Pharmaceuticals intended to provide more effective and safer alternative for the prevention of blood clots in the veins and reduction of stroke risks. However, reports of severe side effects have dramatically emerged and more complaints about the drug are arising one after another. This has put the multi-billion companies facing lawsuits from patients who have experienced life-threatening injuries, and even deaths, from taking the drug.

The medication was approved by the FDA in 2011 and has been in the center of controversy due to the fact that it was made available in the market without an antidote. Blood thinners typically come with an antidote to prevent excessive bleeding in case a patient develops an internal hemorrhage or suffers an injury.
The manufacturers even used the motto "one dose fits all" for Xarelto to emphasize that taking the drug doesn?t need certain dosage titration and regular monitoring of coagulation levels on patients. This reason alone poses uncertainty of its safeness.

As of now, there have been more than 4,500 cases represented by MDL 2592 with complaints including stroke, blood clots, uncontrolled bleeding, and other severe medical complications. Complainants are asking for a recall while insisting the negligence of the companies in informing the public of the potential risks.

Dangerous Side Effects

Patients who have taken Xarelto have been reported to have developed:
  • * Brain Bleeding
  • * Blood Clot
  • * Hemorrhage
  • * Internal Bleeding
The most life-threatening side effect of taking Xarelto is uncontrolled bleeding in such occurrences of brain bleeding or gastrointestinal hemorrhage. Without regular monitoring, the patient becomes more exposed to risks. Internal excessive bleeding can affect nearby vital organs such as lungs, liver, and brain that can be fatal if not properly monitored. Since there is no antidote available for Xarelto, bleeding can persist until the drug is totally flushed out of the system.

Victims claim that the manufacturers paid more attention in gaining profit rather than focusing on the safety and welfare of the patients.

Why should victims file a Xarelto lawsuit?

If you happen to experience the same hazardous side effects after taking Xarelto, or if you know someone who have fallen victim to this drug, you may file a Xarelto lawsuit and make yourself eligible for a settlement.

There was indeed no proper warning from the manufacturers regarding the risk of using Xarelto and this is a clear manifestation of disregarding the public health. By filing a lawsuit against the makers of this medication, you can get compensation for all your sufferings which may include but not limited to the following:

  • * Emotional and physical distress caused by the life-threatening side effects of the drug.
  • * Financial loss brought about by hospitalization and other medical care, lost wages, and emergency visits.
  • * Death of a loved one which may cause emotional burden and financial concern due to funeral expenses.
  • * Holding the manufacturers of Xarelto responsible for making and releasing a risky medication without an accompanying antidote and proper warning.
