Learn more about the potentially deadly side effects of Xarelto® and consider speaking to a knowledgeable Xarelto injury lawyer at the Hollis Law Firm to determine if your case is viable.
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a widely popular anticoagulant, or blood thinner, used to prevent or treat blood clots known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and to lower the risk of stroke for those suffering from atrial fibrillation. DVT is a life-threatening condition in which a blood clot forms in the lower extremities and atrial fibrillation is a heart rhythm disorder which greatly increases a person’s chance of experiencing a stroke. Xarelto was developed by the massive pharmaceutical company, Bayer, and was approved for use in the United States in 2011.
What is causing some to seek an experienced Xarelto injury lawyer?
While Xarelto was initially heralded as a major step forward for anticoagulants, some patients have experienced uncontrollable internal bleeding leading to serious injuries and even wrongful death. Unlike its 50-year-old counterpart, Warfarin, Xarelto was developed without an antidote to halt a major bleeding event. If a serious internal bleed happens near a major organ like the brain, lungs, or kidneys, that organ may lose some or all functionality. In addition to being manufactured without an antidote, Xarelto also cannot be filtered out of the blood stream through dialysis.
