Perhaps you or a loved one has taken or been prescribed Xarelto in the past and suffered excessive bleeding or death due to the drug’s effects. Many doctors prescribe Xarelto to prevent blood clots in patients that have undergone surgery that in turn limits their mobility. Some patients have suffered harm after a joint replacement or other major surgery due to complications caused by the drug. The most serious problem that can result from taking Xarelto is internal bleeding which can require additional surgery to resolve. The current litigation is against the drugs manufacturers Bayer and Johnson & Johnson claiming that they failed to warn consumers about the risks of the drugs. In some cases, medical malpractice can occur if the physician has failed to take notice of risks or has been persuaded by a drug company. If you feel that you or a family member has been wronged by or injured by Xarelto then the attorneys at Hodges Trial Lawyers will be happy to discuss your legal options regarding this bad drug.
