Looking for a Xarelto lawyer?
The blood thinner Xarelto (Rivaroxaban), manufactured by Bayer, is often prescribed to prevent and/or treat blood clots. More than that, it’s also been found to reduce the risk of stroke for patients who have a heart rhythm disorder known as atrial fibrillation. Put on the market initially in 2011, Xarelto didn’t last long before the Food and Drug Administration issued a 2013 warning letter for advertising that minimized risks and made misleading claims. In 2014 the first lawsuit against Xarelto was filed.
Xarelto Bleeding Complications
One of the problems with Xarelto is that it can cause very serious allergic reactions and can cause serious bleeding when it attacks the body’s blood clotting proteins. All blood thinners, while providing an important treatment, introduce risks such as internal bleeding and hemorrhaging. But between Xarelto’s questionable advertising methods and the fact that it’s the only blood thinner with no antidote to help doctors stop excessive bleeding and help patients clot, Xarelto is facing a mountain of upcoming legal battles. Other blood thinners are easily countered by administering vitamin K. This is an important aspect of safety—but Xarelto doesn’t respond to vitamin K and its manufacturers are being accused of negligence for releasing it without an antidote.
Xarelto Lawyer Referral For Excessive Bleeding Lawsuits
By December of 2015, numerous news outlets were reporting that more than 2,000 cases had been lodged against Xarelto. Complaints in the cases range from wrongful death to insufficient warning labels. Right now, 40 of the case are being selected to take part in a bellwether trial, which is a method allowing each side to test their arguments and see how a court rules. The results of the bellwether trial will give Xarelto manufacturers an idea about how they should settle other cases against them.
