Xarelto is a blood thinning medication that has been prescribed to patients who are suffering from pulmonary embolism, atrial fibrillation, or deep vein thrombosis. It is also prescribed to patients who have undergone a knee or hip replacement surgery in order to prevent blood clots.
Such serious issues can potentially cause death, which is yet another reason why the risks of using it can be far greater than the benefits. If you or if someone you know has suffered from any of these complications, it may be necessary to contact our Kansas City product liability attorneys in order to seek legal advice in regards to filing a claim.
A lawsuit has already been filed against Xarelto's manufacturer (Janssen Pharmaceutical) as well as Bayer Healthcare (Xarelto's co-marketer). In this lawsuit, it was claimed that these companies did not warn medical professionals and patients of the severe risks of using Xarelto including the risk of severe internal bleeding.
If you believe that Xarelto use has been the cause of serious medical issues or even death, do not wait another day to contact our Kansas City product liability lawyers. We offer a free and confidential consultation in order to review the details of your case and determine whether or not a claim can be filed in order to pursue compensation in court. Our clients' best interests are our top priority, and we work around the clock in order to serve our clients' needs no matter how complicated their case may be.
