Xarelto Blood Thinner Lawsuits

Xarelto Attorney St. LouisXarelto (rivaroxaban) is a blood thinner that hit the market just 3 years ago in 2011.

Manufactured by Bayer, Xarelto has been linked to uncontrollable bleeding.

This side effect is not uncommon with blood thinners. Recently, almost 200 lawsuits have been filed against the similar drug, Pradaxa.

In addition to the serious bleeding events and fatalities, blood clots have been reported in patients taking Xarelto—despite the fact that the drug was designed to prevent blood clots from occurring.

Allegations Against Bayer

While Xarelto is intended to reduce the risk of stroke, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary Embolism, and Blood clots in patients who have undergone hip or knee replacement surgery, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices named blood thinners as the most dangerous drugs—meaning that they have the highest number of serious side effects.

Bayer has been accused of failing to adequately warn consumers about the potential risks associated with the drug.

Side effects of Xarelto include:

  • Intracranial hemorrhages
  • Epidural hematoma
  • Gastrointestinal hemorrhages
  • Retinal hemorrhages
  • Adrenal bleeding
  • Stroke
  • Death

Some are suggesting that Bayer should have recalled the drug once risks were discovered because the side effects cannot yet be controlled or reversed by physicians.

Why Do You Need A Xarelto Lawyer?

In addition to holding Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals responsible for manufacturing and distributing the dangerous drug, defective drug attorneys are available to help patients receive compensation for their financial and emotional losses.

In some cases, family members who lost a loved one due to uncontrolled bleeding after taking Xarelto will need to be compensated for funeral expenses. For a free and confidential consultation, contact Schultz & Myers Personal Injury Lawyers at 314-444-4444.
