The prescription Xarelto has become a controversial topic after recently published studies have shown a link between the drug and severe side effects including uncontrollable bleeding.
The dangerous side effects linked with the use of Xarelto have led to many individuals and families across the country filing lawsuits against several different companies involved in the manufacturing and distribution of Xarelto in the US. The pending lawsuits allege that these companies acted negligently and knowingly by failing to warn the public of significant risks associated with Xarelto.
Xarelto is a popular prescribed blood thinner used for reducing the risks of blood clots in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery. Xarelto is also prescribed for patients with Atrial Fibrillation, Deep Vein Thrombosis or Pulmonary Embolism.
Complaint Alleges Drug Caused Cerebral Hemorrhage Leading To Death
On May 22nd, 2015 a lawsuit filed by the deceased’s widow, alleges that Xarelto was the direct cause of internal bleeding which eventually resulted in his wrongful death.
Stated in the complaint, the deceased man was prescribed Xarelto by his physician in December of 2012. The man was then hospitalized on May 8th, 2013 for a cerebral hemorrhage and was later transferred to the Intensive Care Unit to be treated for his condition.
Unfortunately, the man passed away on May 22nd, 2013 from medical complications that were allegedly caused by Xarelto side effects.
“This case adds to the growing number of complaints which allege that Xarelto’s side effects caused injury or death,” commented Marc Goldich, Esq. of Sheller P.C.
Goldich continued, “Many people are just learning that Xarelto may have been involved in a loved one’s injury or death and we are currently doing everything we can to help these people seek justice.”
