Did you or a loved one experience uncontrolled renal or kidney bleeding while on Xarelto?
If so, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost wages and even your pain and suffering.
Xarelto, manufactured by Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is an anticoagulant medication that has been associated with serious renal bleeding incidents.
Xarelto has no known antidote, making it even more dangerous than the most common blood thinner medication, Coumadin/warfarin, the effects of which can be reversed with high doses of vitamin K. But many physicians and patients were never properly informed about the real and very serious risk of uncontrolled bleeding incidents while taking Xarelto.
Deceptive downplay of the internal bleeding risks.
It’s alleged that Xarelto was marketed in a manner that was deceptive due to the downplay of the internal bleeding risks. What’s more, patients have called it irresponsible to release a drug without an antidote.
Renal bleeding can arise spontaneously, but Xarelto inhibits the blood’s ability to form clots which would halt the bleeding. As a result, the bleeding becomes uncontrolled. The kidneys are vital organs which serve to filter toxins from the body and produce urine.
If you or a loved one has suffered physical, emotional or financial losses as a result of kidney bleeding or another uncontrolled bleeding incident while taking Xarelto, you may have a viable case.
The kidneys are vital organs in the body that are responsible for filtering harmful toxins. Xarelto can cause them to bleed excessively as well resulting in severe renal complications. If you are suffering from this or know someone who is, contact our attorneys today.
