Information about Xarelto Internal Bleeding Lawsuits from Lawyers Handling Xarelto Lawsuits Nationwide
Xarelto (rivaroxaban), an oral blood thinner, has been linked to a high rate of serious internal bleeding incidents and deaths. Approved for use in patients suffering from atrial fibrillation and recovering from hip and knee replacement surgeries, Xarelto is used to prevent stroke by reducing the body’s ability to form blood clots.
Xarelto has been found to increase a patient’s chances of suffering from severe internal bleeding and patients have not been adequately warned of the life-threatening risk. In June of 2013, Janssen Pharmaceuticals received an FDA warning letter for Xarelto, stating the company had created “false or misleading” marketing that “minimizes the risks associated with Xarelto and makes a misleading claim.” In fact, severe Xarelto bleeding events have been found to be more common than initially projected. Furthermore, the drug has no known antidote, meaning Xarelto bleeding cannot reliably be stopped once it commences. FDA officials and medical professionals alike have questioned whether the benefits of Xarelto are enough to outweigh an increased risk of bleeding or hemorrhage.
More than 2.6 million Americans suffer from atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat that greatly increases the risk of stroke, and another 1 million hip and knee replacement surgeries are performed annually in the U.S. Due to the high demand for this type of drug, the market for blood thinners exceeds $10 billion in the U.S. each year.
Attorneys handling Xarelto bleeding lawsuits believe that persons and the family members of persons who suffered from severe bleeding incidents while taking Xarelto may be entitled to compensation. Each lawsuit that is filed will serve to increase accountability for the drug maker, Bayer, and marketer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
