Our firm is presently reviewing claims on behalf of patients who took the blood thinner Xarelto (rivaroxaban) and suffered serious bleeding events, including hemorrhages and strokes. While bleeding is a common complication associated with anticoagulants, it has been alleged that Xarelto is more dangerous than traditional blood thinners because no antidote exists to reverse its blood-thinning effects. This means that, in the event of an emergency, patients may be at risk for irreversible bleeding problems, including life-threatening internal and gastrointestinal bleeds.
Pharmaceutical companies, including the makers of Xarelto, have a duty to ensure that their drugs are reasonably safe for use – and failure to do so may be grounds for a lawsuit. If you or a loved one suffered a serious bleeding event after taking Xarelto, you may have legal recourse. For more information, contact us today to have your case reviewed, free of charge.
