Xarelto Lawyer in California

The attorneys at the Wilshire Law Firm are currently reviewing claims on behalf of patients who suffered serious bleeding complications after taking the blood thinner Xarelto (rivaroxaban). While all coagulants, including Warfarin, can cause bleeding, Xarelto is particularly dangerous because it does not have an antidote. This can contribute to irreversible bleeding issues, including potentially fatal abdominal bleeding and cerebral hemorrhaging.

xareltoThe manufacturers of pharmaceutical drugs have a duty to ensure that their products are reasonably safe to use – and failure to fulfill this duty can be grounds for a lawsuit. If you or a loved one has sustained significant damages due to a complication caused by Xarelto, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • The costs of medical treatment, including emergency visits and ongoing care
  • Wages lost while out of work
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

What Is Xarelto?

Xarelto is an anticoagulant manufactured by Bayer AG and marketed in the United States by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a division of pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson. It has been widely prescribed to prevent blood clots in patients suffering from the following conditions:

  • Heart arrhythmia
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Stroke

This drug has also been commonly prescribed to patients who have recently undergone a knee or hip replacement surgery.

What Are the Side Effects, Symptoms, and Risks of Xarelto?

Unlike traditional coagulants, which are dosed based on the patient’s weight and ability to clot, Xarelto is given as a “one size fits all” treatment. For this reason, improper prescriptions and accidental overdoses are common. And without an antidote, patients who suffer bleeding have no choice but to wait till the effects of the medication dissipate, which can take many hours, days or week. During this period, serious complications may arise and even lead to death.

Despite their investigation, the FDA has continued to defend Xarelto, claiming it "provides an important health benefit when used as directed." Wilshire Law Firm disagrees.

Potential injuries caused through the use of Xarelto include:

  • Severe internal bleeding
  • Decreased hemoglobin
  • Cerebral hemorrhage
  • Hematoma
  • Peripheral Edema
  • Dyspnea

If you have been taking Xarelto and are experiencing side effects such as blood in the stool, easy bruising, fatigue, dizziness, abdominal swelling, and pale skin, then you may be at great risk of internal bleeding and other serious complications. It is highly advised that you immediately stop all use of Xarelto and consult with your physician right away.

Xarelto Lawsuit FAQ

Xarelto’s Danger and Lawsuit

We are currently handling claims on behalf of patients who suffered serious medical complications after taking the blood thinner Xarelto. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries due to Xarelto, speak to an attorney at Wilshire Law Firm as soon as possible. You may be entitled to millions of dollars in compensation.

Did Xarelto Cause Internal Bleeding?

Xarelto has been linked to severe cases of uncontrolled bleeding and other adverse side effects, including hematoma and peripheral edema. Unlike warfarin, Xarelto does not have an antidote or reversal agent. Therefore, patients who take Xarelto face the risk of a severe, possibly even fatal bleeding event.

What Are Dangerous Side Effects of Xarelto?

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other reporting agencies, Xarelto can cause the following adverse side effects:

  • Decreased hemoglobin
  • Cerebral hemorrhage
  • Hematoma
  • Peripheral Edema
  • Dyspnea
  • Gastrointestinal bleed
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Rectal/colon bleeding
  • Liver dysfunction

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Xarelto Cases?

It varies from case to case since each state can have different time bars to action. If you have any questions about your specific case, please reach out to our experienced Xarelto lawsuit attorneys and we will assess your case. Do not take too long to seek legal counsel because if the statute of limitations for your case expires, you will be barred from pursuing compensation.

Is There a Xarelto Class Action?

There are no current class actions in the United States involving Bayer and Xarelto. Instead, these cases are consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL). Unlike class action lawsuits, MDL lawsuits remain separate and are ultimately tried or decided individually.

Do I Have a Xarelto Lawsuit?

Reach out to the knowledgeable dangerous drug attorneys at Wilshire Law Firm to determine whether you have a viable Xarelto lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit based on the following arguments:

  • You did not receive adequate warning about the dangers of Xarelto
  • You were misled by Xarelto’s marketing about the dangers of Xarelto
  • The makers of Xarelto neglected your well-being for the sake of profits

Remember, time is of the essence. If you do not file your claim before the deadline, or statute of limitations, for your case expires, you will lose the right to pursue compensation altogether. To ensure that you receive the financial support you need to make a recovery, contact a reliable attorney to get started on your case as soon as possible.
