Xarelto Lawsuits Filed Alleging Bleeding Risks

Xarelto is a blood thinning medication approved by the FDA in 2001 for the prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation and the prevention of blood clots - often in patients undergoing hip and knee replacement surgeries.  Xarelto is one of the new class of drugs marketed as an easier alternative to Coumadin (warfarin) because Xarelto does not require frequent blood testing.  Expensive and expansive marketing campaigns by Bayer and Johnson & Johnson have lead to a surge in prescriptions of Xarelto.

But, unfortunately, Xarelto users are experiencing serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding events - such as gastrointestinal bleeding, brain bleeds, and hemorrhagic strokes.  Unlike other drugs, Xarelto has no antidote or reversal agent to stop the bleeding once it starts. 

Lawsuits are being filed for Xarelto users who have experienced a bleeding event requiring hospitalization or resulting in death.  Attorney Jean Sutton Martin has been handling drug injury cases for almost 15 years and is handling cases on behalf of Xarelto users.  Please call our office for more information regarding the Xarelto litigation.
