Used to treat atrial fibrillation and reduce the risk of blood clots, Xarelto is a popular blood thinning medication prescribed by doctors everywhere. It's often used to reduce the risk of stroke, blood clots, and deep vein thrombosis.
However, Xarelto's side effects can cause irreversible internal bleeding leading to extended hospital stays or even death.
Since there is no way to reverse the bleeding caused by Xarelto, a person suffering from a serious injury is at risk of severe blood loss – or even death – as a result of this medication.
The manufacturer did not provide instruction or indication to patients or loved ones that they should monitor their blood levels while prescribed Xarelto. As a result, many have suffered injury or even death due to internal bleeding.
There is a pending lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, and Johnson & Johnson – the manufactures of Xarelto – for not providing adequate warning to their patients or physicians.
These companies have an obligation to guard the wellbeing of their patients. They failed to provide sufficient and substantial warning to the dangerous side effects associated with Xarelto.
By law, these manufacturers must take responsibility for any damages caused as a result of their negligence.
