Xarelto Linked to Potentially Fatal Side Effects

Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) that prevents the formation of blood clots. Xarelto is used to prevent or treat a type of blood clot called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can lead to blood clots in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). Xarelto is also used in people with atrial fibrillation (a heart rhythm disorder) to lower the risk of stroke caused by a blood clot. However, this drug has been linked to serious and life threatening side effects, including uncontrolled bleeding. Currently there is no antidote for the medication.

Compensation May be Available for these Xarelto injuries:

  • Uncontrolled bleeding resulting in death
  • Medical expenses
  • Emotional and physical pain
  • Loss of consortium
  • Intestinal bleeding
  • Brain hemorrhaging
  • Rectal bleeding

If you think you or a loved one has been injured as a result of taking Xarelto, you may be entitled to compensation as a result of your injuries. Contact Calcagno & Associates today to discuss your potential Xarelto lawsuit.

Lawsuits Against Johnson & Johnson and Bayer

“Drug giants Bayer and Johnson & Johnson face the first lawsuits related to safety concerns for the billion-dollar blood thinner Xarelto, according to Reuters”

According to, plaintiffs filed claims after severe internal bleeding sent them to the hospital. In those cases, patients took Xarelto (rivaroxaban), and their claims blame the excessive bleeding on that use. Unlike warfarin, another popular blood thinner used to treat and prevent blood clots, Xarelto does not have an antidote to stop uncontrolled bleeding, which can be fatal.

Thousands of Xarelto lawsuits have been filed as a result of serious injuries from Xarelto.

Drug companies have a responsibility to notify the public when a drug may cause harmful side effects. When a company like Bayer or Johnson & Johnson fail to notify patients of potential harmful effects, the results are misleading and dangerous, and often lead to lawsuits against the drug manufacturer.

Xarelto has been responsible for thousands of serious adverse events since it was approved in 2011

Due to the fact that the manufacturers and marketers of Xarelto did not provide enough warnings about the serious side effects of Xarelto, they put millions of patients at risk.

If you have suffered certain medical problems as a direct result of taking Xarelto, you may be within your rights to file a lawsuit against Xarelto’s manufacturers and marketers.

In order to recover compensation, our attorneys will pursue these types of dangerous drug cases on a “contingency fee” basis, which means there is no fee unless we recover for you. Call Calcagno & Associates to discuss your legal options.
