Xarelto is used to prevent blood clots. Its makers claim it a safer and more convenient alternative to older blood thinners.
However, a very serious side effect of use, uncontrollable internal bleeding, makes the drug very dangerous and potentially fatal. If you or a loved one took Xarelto and experience complication such as uncontrollable internal bleeding you could be owed signifigant financial compensation.
Should you file a Xarelto Lawsuit?
Xarelto was approved for use in 2011, making it one of the newest blood thinners on the market. It is manufactured by Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a Johnson and Johnson subsidiary.
Uncontrollable bleeding, a risk with all blood thinners, is the most serious side effect of Xarelto. However, unlike the established drug Warfarin, there is no antidote to uncontrolled bleeding caused by Xarelto.
Some of the country’s top physicians have voiced concerns over the use of Xarelto, and fear it more do more harm than good.
Reasons to File a Xarelto Lawsuit
- Out of pocket costs for emergency visits and ongoing care
- Lost Wages
- Emotional distress
- Funeral expenses for the death of a loved one that had taken Xarelto
- Holding the manufactures responsible for releasing a dangerous drug.

Xarelto and Other Blood Thinner Lawsuits
Dangerous Blood Thinners
Blood thinners, including Xarelto, have been named the most dangerous drugs with the highest incidents of side effects reported to the FDA by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices. Xarelto was prescribed to thousands of patients when it was released to the market, but doctors fear it may be as dangerous as the similar drug Pradaxa. Xarelto, like Pradaxa, has no known antidote or effective way for controlling or stopping bleeding caused by the drug.
Patients that have filed Xarelto lawsuits claim the drug makers did not properly warn doctors or the public about the risks of taking Xarelto. The lawsuits also claim that the manufactures knowingly released the drug without an antidote, increasing the danger of taking the drug. Like Pradaxa, a number of people have died from taking the drug because doctors could not stop the bleeding cause by Xarelto.
