Xarelto® Lawsuit Lawyer
Were you or a loved one prescribed Xarelto® and then experienced excessive bleeding that required a transfusion or hospitalization? In some case, even death has occurred after using Xarelto®. Xarelto® is a blood thinner that is used to limit the risk of blood clots that can cause pulmonary embolism or stroke, but the drug itself has serious risks. Some victims of severe complications or death from Xarelto® may be able to receive compensation through a Xarelto® lawsuit.
Blood thinners are prescribed in patients that have a high risk of blood clots. Deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, is a condition where blood clots form in the legs that can travel to the heart or lungs and cause an embolism. This is a common concern after some surgeries, and a blood thinner like Xarelto® may be prescribed to limit the risk of embolism. Xarelto® has also been prescribed for those with atrial fibrillation that may be at risk for stroke due to blood clots.
Injuries from Xarelto®
Xarelto® works by thinning the blood, reducing the chance of blood clots. However, with this function, a risk of thinning blood can result. Internal bleeding and other serious and possibly even fatal complications can occur. Patients may need to receive blood transfusions and be hospitalized after using Xarelto®, with serious risks to their health. While blood thinners can have the risk of excessive bleeding, the extent of the risk with Xarelto® was not explained to many patients and stopping the bleeding and risks is very difficult. Many faced extensive medical care and expenses due to taking Xarelto® and are now pursuing compensation to cover their losses and damages.
