The Hollis Law Firm’s attorneys have experience with Xarelto® bleeding lawsuits. Consider speaking to a lawyer today about your unique situation to determine if you have a potential case.
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) was manufactured by Bayer and was approved for use by the FDA in 2011 as the newest anticoagulant on the market. Anticoagulants are more commonly known as blood thinners, and Xarelto was considered revolutionary due to the fact that patients could take the medication orally in one standardized dose. Another key characteristic of Xarelto is that it has no antidote to halt an uncontrollable bleed.
Why are Xarelto bleeding lawsuits being filed?
While all blood thinners carry a risk of uncontrollable bleeding, most anticoagulants on the market were manufactured with an antidote to clot the blood to stop a significant bleeding event. Since there is no antidote for Xarelto, like there is for its counterpart, warfarin, patients may experience severe side effects or even death if uncontrollable internal bleeding occurs. Many allege that Bayer failed to sufficiently warn the public about these potentially deadly side effects of Xarelto and many are seeking to file Xarelto bleeding lawsuits to hold Bayer accountable for its potentially dangerous drug.
The Xarelto® bleeding lawsuits are claiming that uncontrollable internal bleeding has caused wrongful deaths and serious injuries. Some of these uncontrollable bleeds include:
- Intestinal bleeding
- Rectal bleeding
- Brain hemorrhaging
