Washington Xarelto Lawyer
As a Xarelto lawyer in WA, we understand how fatal this drug can be. Marketed by Janssen Pharmaceuticals as a blood thinner, Xarelto has become an incredibly popular drug in the United States. While popular, the drug has fatal side effects, including uncontrolled bleeding, of which there is no clear antidote. If you have taken the drug or know someone who has, you should speak with an attorney.
Xarelto May Can Cause Internal Bleeding
The drug manufacturer has warned of some risks of internal bleeding, so you may be familiar with the Xarelto disclosures before ever taking it. However, these disclosures have not portrayed the potential lethal side effects of the drug. Slight internal bleeding is drastically different from the severe and often uncontrollable internal bleeding that some patients have suffered.
Reasons to File a Lawsuit
If you have taken Xarelto and have suffered internal bleeding or other significant side effects, you may have:
- Incurred additional medical bills;
- Taken time off work to recover or for surgery;
- Been forced to have additional procedures;
- Suffered stress (both you and your family);
- Been unable to work;
- And more.
If any of these apply to your specific situation, you could have a case against the drug company and be entitled to compensation.
In any injury case, a lawyer must prove negligence. This is the legal version of fault, and without it, you will not receive financial compensation. The drug manufacturer, distributor, marketing company, doctor — someone has to be responsible for you taking a medication without being properly warned of the side effects. Our job is to identify who is responsible and then gather enough evidence to prove their negligence. This must be done before filing a lawsuit to ensure that the appropriate parties are held accountable.
You Can File on Behalf of Your Family Member
If someone in your family died as a result of taking Xarelto, you have our deepest condolences. You can also have our legal support. As a close family member, you have the right to retain an attorney on behalf of the deceased. We can file a lawsuit on your behalf and seek a financial award. While this can never bring back your loved one, it can provide the resources to pay for their children’s living expenses, education, etc. As a surviving spouse, you can seek damages for their loss of wages over the course of a lifetime, etc. We can discuss your claim in detail when you come in for a consultation.
