Woman Claims Xarelto Led To Internal Bleeding

Xarelto is a popular blood thinner which is widely used across the United States. According to a news report, the plaintiff was prescribed Xarelto by her doctor for the prevention of blood clots. After taking the drug for five months the plaintiff suffered an internal bleed which resulted in serious injury. The  woman not only claims that the drug makers were negligent in failing to perform sufficient testing on the drug, but her lawsuit also alleges that the companies acted negligently by failing to warn the public of the dangerous side effects associated with Xarelto.

Xarelto has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the United States since its approval by the FDA in 2011. The news report also stated that uncontrollable internal bleeding is among the most serious side effect associated with Xarelto and has been reported by many patients prescribed to the drug.

Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation

If a drug maker fails to fulfill its duty to provide safe drugs and to warn of potentially harmful side effects that may be associated with its medication, it could be held liable for any injuries that may result. Patients who have been injured by Xarelto may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • The permanency of the injury
  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
  • Loss of income or ability to work
