Xarelto Lawsuit Attorney
If you have suffered from uncontrolled bleeding or other health complications while taking prescription Xarelto (the brand name of blood-thinning drug rivaroxaban), contact Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP, to speak with a Long Island Xarelto lawsuit attorney who represents clients nationwide in these cases. You may have a case against the manufacturer.
Xarelto and the Risks of Using It
Xarelto is a relatively new anticoagulation medication that received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2011. The drug is prescribed to reduce the risk of blood clots in certain patients, and its manufacturers marketed the drug as an effective alternative to the widely used drug, warfarin (Coumadin). However, Xarelto makers Bayer AG and Janssen failed to properly warn users about the increased risk of uncontrolled bleeding.
Uncontrolled bleeding can directly lead to several adverse health outcomes, including stroke, pulmonary embolism, heart attack, internal/external bleeding, and death. Unlike warfarin, Xarelto does not have an antidote to reduce the risks of uncontrolled bleeding.
Xarelto’s claim as a universal easy-to-use medication may also make it dangerous. Traditional anticoagulants such as warfarin require close monitoring and careful prescription measures to keep patients within safe use ranges. Xarelto was marketed as safe and easy to use, but dosages may have drastically different effects on patients, depending on age, weight, and body response.
Alternatives to Xarelto
Many, but not all, physicians have stopped prescribing Xarelto because of the increasing number of lawsuits and complication reports. As a patient, ask your physician for alternatives to Xarelto, including using warfarin or another, less risky, treatment. For some individuals, daily aspirin and regular activity may effectively minimize the risks associated with blood clots.
If you are reading this, you may have already experienced complications from the medication. Contact a knowledgeable Long Island Xarelto lawsuit attorney as soon as you associate your symptoms with taking Xarelto. Your lawyer can help you obtain high-quality medical care and start working on your case. After experiencing a close call or a relative’s death, you have the right to hold the manufacturer responsible for the harm caused and the attorneys at our Long Island law firm are here to help every step of the way.
The Effects of Xarelto Complications
Those who take Xarelto and experience complications may struggle with more health problems than they had before. Many adverse outcomes, including stroke and hemorrhage, can lead to long-term hospital stays, time missed from work, and the costs associated with secondary treatments and medications. Individuals who suffer from complications may face financial, work, and personal life challenges.
Taking legal action does two things: a lawsuit enables individuals to hold large manufacturers accountable for their actions, possibly reducing the risk of others experiencing the same complications. It also helps families and individuals who suffer obtain fair financial compensation to cover the costs associated with the injury.
