Xarelto® (Rivaroxaban) & Bleeding Lawsuits

Did Xarelto cause excessive bleeding? Call our drug injury lawyers!

Xarelto® (rivaroxaban) is a medication jointly produced by pharmaceutical giants Bayer and Johnson & Johnson. The drug was released to the market in 2011 and the FDA approved it as a blood-thinner that is used to treat patients in danger of experiencing strokes.

However, despite its recent entry into the consumer drug market, Xarelto has already been linked to a number of serious injuries, including excessive bleeding — which can cause someone to bleed out and potentially result in a fatality.

If you are among those affected by Xarelto, don’t hesitate to call our Kansas City dangerous drug attorneys at (816) 298-8708.

Side Effects of Xarelto

Individuals who were prescribed Xarelto have been known to suffer from a series of negative side effects and ailments that have included nose bleeds, muscle pain, dizziness, and vomiting. Younger patients were given this drug to act as a coagulant after hip replacement or knee surgery; many of those users experienced severe excessive bleeding that resulted in other, serious health consequences.

Many of the side effects of the anticoagulant can cause serious injuries, including:

  • Internal bleeding
  • Brain hemorrhages
  • Stroke
  • Fatal bleeding

Unfortunately, these injuries are not uncommon in patients who have been prescribed Xarelto. There are even some studies that demonstrate that the drug may not increase survival rates in patients.

Xarelto Lawsuits

The first Xarelto bleeding lawsuit was filed in 2014 by a woman who suffered severe gastrointestinal bleeding and was hospitalized. She claims Bayer and Johnson & Johnson knew the dangers of the medicine, but did not properly inform the public. More lawsuits are expected as people become more aware of the drug’s side effects.
