The Law Office of Driggs, Bills & Day are now accepting cases for those who have suffered as a result of taking Xarelto.
What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is prescription blood thinner given to patients with atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat) or patients who have had hip or knee replacement surgery. Xarelto was intended to lower the risks of stroke by helping to prevent blood clots, but what patients often did not know was that Xarelto has serious side effects, including a risk of uncontrollable internal bleeding.
What are the Negative Side Effects?
- Uncontrolled internal bleeding
- Unexpected bleeding, such as frequent nose bleeds, unusual bleeding from the gums, or menstrual bleeding that is heavier than normal
- Gastrointestinal hemorrhage
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Hemoglobin Decrease
Why are Lawsuits Being Filed?
Manufacturers failed to warn consumers about Xarelto’s risk of uncontrollable internal bleeding, and also failed to warn that this internal bleeding could not be easily reversed. There is no antidote for the drug, nor to control the bleeding.
If you took Xarelto and suffered from internal bleeding or another serious side effect, call The Law Office of Driggs, Bills & Day to discuss your options. We’re here to help and currently filing claims now. So call today!
