Who is most at risk for Xarelto bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke?
Unlike other oral anti-coagulants, for which serious side effects have been reported mainly for high-risk, elderly patients with a history of heart problems, Xarelto bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke seems to occur mostly in younger patients in their 60s who have undergone hip or knee replacement surgery, according to the FDA’s adverse events reporting system (FAERS).
Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
The majority of our drug cases are handled as a MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
How much time do I have to file a Xarelto lawsuit?
Most states have Xarelto lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all persons having used Xarelto will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
