Xarelto Side Effect Lawsuit
Dangerous Drug Lawsuit
The medical device defect and dangerous drug side effect law firm of Nadrich & Cohen, LLP, is currently pursuing Xarelto side effect claims.
Our drug side effect attorneys handle claims where a Xarelto patient sustained a serious and uncontrolled, internal bleed. In some instances, the internal bleed can be so severe that death results. Most frequently, the uncontrolled bleed occurs in one of the following areas of the body:
- Gastrointestinal Tract
- Urogenital Tract
- Cerebral Area
- Rectal Area
The above side effects can occur, even with first dosing of Xarelto. Therefore, long-term use of Xarelto is not necessary in order to make a Xarelto Side Effect Claim. We believe that Janssen, the manufacturer of Xarelto, failed to adequately warn consumers and patients of potential Xarelto side effects.
Xarelto was widely marketed by Janssen as a convenient blood thinner that did not require blood monitoring, as commonly required for use of other blood thinning medications. We believe that blood monitoring should have been required, in order to evaluate the clotting effect of Xarelto. Hip implant and knee implant patients have an increased risk of developing blood clots in the days following implantation. Given that Xarelto is prescribed for medical device implant patients, blood monitoring is of increased importance in the days following the implant procedure.
