Xarelto Lawsuit

Are you a resident of Nevada that has suffered  a serious bleeding event or serious trauma as a result of the drug Xarelto? Xarelto is designed to block a chemical in the brain called thrombin, which causes the blood to clot. Xarelto is also made to help treat patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT), atrial fibrillation, and pulmonary embolism (a blockage in the lungs). Xarelto has contributed to people suffering massive bleeding in the brain and other parts of the body. Since the drug is a blood thinner, it can sometimes be difficult to stop the bleeding and has led to serious injury and death.

Unfortunately, there have been many people in the state of Nevada that have been seriously harmed after taking Xarelto. Some of the most common side effects of Xarelto that have been reported include:

  • pulmonary embolism
  • deep vein thrombosis
  • gastrointestinal hemorrhage and hemorrhage
  • brain hemorrhaging
  • cerebrovascular incidents
  • hematoma
  • edema
  • dyspnea
  • hemoglobin
  • death

In 2013, there were studies reported by the FDA which stated there had been at least 2,100 adverse effects which occurred when somebody took Xarelto. In this report, it says that over 1,800 patients named Xarelto to be the primary cause.

With 2.8 million people in the state of Nevada, and 4 million prescriptions of Xarelto being prescribed annually, the number for bleeding events that have been caused by Xarelto is continuing to climb.
