All blood thinners can increase the risk of severe bleeding. However, Xarelto is a lot more dangerous than traditional blood thinners. It does not have an antidote to stop the bleeding. This means that if a person starts bleeding, then he or she can suffer irreversible bleeding. As a result, new Xarelto Lawsuits are being filed over these side effects.

Why are People Filing Xarelto Lawsuits?
The makers of Xarelto have stated that the drug is safe and effective. Coumadin, Warfarin and other blood-thinners can be reversed with vitamin K. However, vitamin K does not work if the person is taking Xarelto. Plaintiffs have stated that Xarelto caused them to have gastrointestinal bleeding and cerebral hemorrhaging.
The lawsuits also allege the following:
*Xarelto was marketed as being superior to other anticoagulants.
*The makers lied about the safety of this drug.
*The manufacturers did not warn about all of the dangers of this drug.
*Xarelto can cause eye bleeding, brain hemorrhaging and excessive blood loss.
Statute Of Limitations
It is important for you to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. There is a Statute of Limitations that applies. An attorney can review your case and determine whether you are able to get compensation.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire an Attorney?
Most Xarelto attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means that you will only have to pay if you win the case.
