Xarelto was initially designed by a manufacturer to work as a blood thinner. Unfortunately, this medication is linked to an increased risk of uncontrolled bleeding, as has been reported by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In a marketing rush to get Xarelto in the hands of patients, resulting in billions of dollars in sales, the health of patients took a back seat. Many fatalities and countless severe injuries occurred. If the drug manufacturer had simply warned patients and physicians to receive blood testing annually, many of the injuries could have been avoided.
In 2013, the manufacturer of Xarelto received a letter from the FDA indicating that the company had issued false or misleading marketing that minimized the risks involved with the use of the drug. Moreover, there is no known antidote for the problems caused by Xarelto. This means, should severe bleeding commence as a result of the drug, it cannot be reliably stopped.
There are more than 2.6 million people in America that suffer from atrial fibrillation. This amounts to an irregular heartbeat which increases the risk of suffering a stroke.
There are an additional one million people that require knee and hip replacement surgeries in the United States each year. Thus, there is a high demand for Xarelto. The blood thinner market exceeds $10 billion in the United States each year. For more information about the risks vs. effectiveness of the drug, reach out to an Xarelto lawyer.
Set forth below is a listing of some of the reported serious side effects of Xarelto:

You should not have to suffer the added burden of high medical bills, on top of emotional and financial hardship. A Xarelto lawyer will be prepared to diligently and zealously seek the damages you are justified to receive.
