Boise Xarelto Lawyer
When your healthcare provider gives you a medication, you expect it to be safe. So you’re right to be angry if taking Xarelto has put your life at risk, and you may be able to secure compensation with the help of a Boise Xarelto attorney.
Xarelto, generically known as rivaroxaban, is a commonly prescribed drug produced and marketed by drugmakers Bayer and Janssen. It’s a blood thinner to be used after surgeries to prevent blood clots, and it’s also used as a stroke-prevention medication.
But here’s the problem: Xarelto has been linked to severe internal bleeding incidents that have sometimes resulted in death. As a result, thousands of lawsuits have been filed, and your Boise Xarelto lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can get you involved so you can get the compensation you deserve.
An anticoagulant thins the blood, usually to prevent clotting, but Xarelto has been linked to extremely dangerous internal bleeding. Most companies create a substance that can counter the effects of drugs they produce, but Xarelto doesn’t have one.
This is another huge problem because the lack of an antidote for use in overdose or adverse reaction situations is exacerbating the drug’s sometimes devastating effects on the body. This has led to several deaths and many long-term injuries.
Deadly Symptoms to Watch Out For
You should speak to a doctor immediately if you notice any of these often life-threatening symptoms while taking Xarelto:
- Frequent, prolonged, or uncontrolled bleeding like nosebleeds, bleeding gums, or heavier-than-usual menstrual bleeding
- Blood in the stool or urine
- Coughing or vomiting blood or blood clots
- Labored breathing
- Chest or back pain
- Headaches, dizziness, or weakness
Accountability in the Drug Business
If you’ve been the victim of the dangerous side effects of Xarelto, you’re likely entitled to compensation for your expenses and losses related to the incident. The pharmaceutical companies can be held responsible for your suffering, but they’re not going to give you what you’re owed without a fight.
But a Boise Xarelto attorney with our firm will know exactly what to do to combat the tactics of the drug companies’ lawyers to get you the compensation you deserve.
You deserve full compensation for any detriment or expense you have experienced after using Xarelto. Whether you had to buy specialized medical equipment or can no longer work, you deserve to continue to live a full and happy life.
Your claims can encompass nearly everything tied to your use of Xarelto. Your claim for compensation may account for the following damages:
- Immediate and future medical costs, including physical and psychological therapies
- Accommodations in your home, vehicles, and workplace for any new or worsened disabilities
- Any lost income from the moment of the accident into the future
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium and companionships
- Wrongful death
