The wife of a deceased Rhode Island man has filed a lawsuit against Bayer, the maker of Xarelto, an anticoagulant used as a blood thinner to lower the risk of stroke in atrial fibrillation patients. According to the Xarelto death lawsuit, the deceased suffered from severe and irreversible hemorrhaging after taking Xarelto, which ultimately resulted in his death. The widow of the deceased has alleged that the drug maker failed to disclose the risks associated with using Xarelto.

Lawsuit Claims Drug Maker Deceived the Public
According to the complaint, the plaintiff not only alleges that the manufacturer failed to disclose risks of taking Xarelto, but that they also deceived the public about its convenience and benefits to increase its use and sales. Although the drug maker denies any wrongdoing, other lawsuits have been filed with similar allegations.
Bayer advertises the drug as a safer and more convenient alternative to the use of warfarin and other blood thinners on the market for atrial fibrillation patients. However, the use of Xarelto has been linked to the development of several severe reactions that require immediate and ongoing treatment and, unlike warfarin, no antidote to uncontrolled bleeding is currently available.
Alleged dangers of using Xarelto include:
- Bruising on the body, especially in the mouth, nose and genital organs.
- Unstoppable or uncontrollable bleeding from wound or injection sites.
- Spinal or epidural hematoma.
- Increased stroke risk after ending treatment.
- Blood clots.
- Severe disability.
Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation
Patients who have taken Xarelto and suffered complications may be entitled to damages, including:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages or ability to work
Family members of those killed after taking Xarelto may also be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one, including:
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish resulting from the loss of a loved one
- Loss of relationship with a loved one
- Loss of financial support
- Medical expenses attributable to the fatal injury
