Xarelto® Injury & Class Action Attorneys
Xarelto is a type of blood thinning drug that is relatively new to the U.S pharmaceutical market.
However, recent studies conducted on the anticoagulant Xarelto suggest that this drug increases the risk of serious or fatal bleeding events, and victims may have experienced severe injuries or death because of this unstoppable bleeding.
The blood-thinning drug Xarelto has been approved for use in treating atrial fibrillation or for stroke prevention, but this dangerous drug has no quick reversal agent, which increases the chances of hemorrhage or fatal bleed-out events.
If you or someone you love suffered from blood clots or unstoppable bleeding after taking Xarelto, you may have grounds to file a claim with our Xarelto attorneys.
We only get paid when we obtain a recovery on your behalf and are ready to help you today.
Potential Xarelto Class Action Lawsuit
Unlike warfarin, the blood-thinning drug Xarelto has no quick reversal agent, and lawsuits are now being filed with allegations that manufacturer Bayer did not adequately inform doctors and patients of this risk.
Victims of Xarelto's dangerous side effects have begun filing individual claims over the injuries or deaths they've suffered because of Bayer's alleged negligence. It is possible that these individual claims could be consolidated before federal courts as a Multidistrict Litigation (MDL).
Xarelto Shows Higher Bleeding Risk than Similar Drugs
A 2011 report from Reuters noted that Xarelto caused a very high rate of bleeding events among participants of a North American clinical trial.1

The 8,101 patient-study compared the effectiveness and bleeding risk of rivaroxaban (Xarelto) against the standard injectable treatment (Lovenox) used in patients with acute illnesses. While the study found both drugs were effective at treating blood clots, rivaroxaban had a 4.1% bleed risk compared to Lovenox's 1.7%.
Additionally, in October 2012, consumer safety group the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) found Xarelto presented serious bleeding risks to a large number of patients as compared to warfarin.
The ISMP concluded that the largest group of rivaroxaban cases described the development of severe blood clots in younger patients (median age 66) taking the anticoagulant drug after hip or knee replacement surgery.
The ISMP's investigation uncovered 356 reports of serious, disabling or fatal hemorrhage events due to this dangerous drug in the first quarter of 2012 alone.
