Have You Been Harmed By Xarelto? Here’s How We Can Help
Xarelto, the brand name of the drug rivaroxaban, is a blood thinner marketed as a much more convenient alternative to older medications such as warfarin, which has been in use since the 1950s. Manufactured by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Xarelto has been linked to several serious – and often fatal – health problems caused by uncontrolled bleeding. As a result, people across the country are filing Xarelto lawsuits.
Why Lawsuits are Filed
There are a lot of potential reasons someone would consider filing a Xarelto lawsuit. Some people do so due to financial hardship resulting from their medical problem due to lost wages as well as money spent on emergency medical visits and ongoing care. Others have taken legal action in an effort to obtain compensation for emotional distress or financial expenses caused by the death of a loved one.
Plaintiffs in these cases are making a variety of allegations, including:
