You’ve likely heard the long lists of potential side effects at the ends of medication commercials. Most drugs have a long list of side effects, many of which can be serious. But when you take Xarelto, you could suffer serious or fatal injuries because of uncontrollable bleeding.

This has happened to many patients, and many of those patients have filed claims for compensation. If Xarelto has caused uncontrollable bleeding for you, you could file a claim, too.

That’s why it’s crucial to seek justice with the help of a Spokane Xarelto lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates. We’ll help you recover full compensation for the damage the drug has done to you and your family.

Xarelto Is a Blood Thinner

Used for various conditions, Xarelto—known generically as rivaroxaban—is a prescription medication that is used to treat and prevent blood clots and strokes in patients.

Xarelto is prescribed for the following conditions:

  • Pulmonary Embolism – This occurs when blood clots that originate in the legs move up to the lungs and get stuck, blocking blood flow.
  • Atrial Fibrillation – This condition causes your heart rate to be irregular and rapid and raises your risk of stroke and heart failure.
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis – This occurs when blood clots form in the blood vessels of the legs.

Dangerous Complications of Xarelto

Xarelto can cause unstoppable internal bleeding that may be fatal if not treated swiftly with a reversal antidote. Unfortunately, for a time, there was no reversal antidote that would allow the blood to clot to stop the internal bleeding.

Xarelto can lead to complications like bleeding in the brain, in and around the eyes, and in the abdomen, intestines, colon, and rectum.

Knowing the signs and symptoms of the dangerous bleeding is important for Xarelto users. Seek immediate medical attention for any of these warning signs:

  • Bloody eyes and nose
  • Bloody urine or stool
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Dizziness and fainting
  • Disorientation and loss of concentration
  • Puffy eyes, lips, and tongue
  • Vomiting blood

You Can Hold the Makers of Xarelto Accountable

The initial event of uncontrollable bleeding is traumatic enough, but survivors often face long-term complications on top of expensive, short-term medical care. All of these expenses can quickly add up, and you deserve compensation for the hardships Xarelto has caused you.

Thousands of people have chosen to file a claim for compensation from Bayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals. A Xarelto lawyer in the Spokane area can help you get the compensation you need to take back control.
