Like many other people in Montgomery, Alabama, you may have taken Xarelto to treat deep vein thrombosis (when a blood blot forms in the legs), pulmonary embolism (when a blood clot forms in the lungs), and atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat).
Xarelto, a blood thinner, is supposed to reduce your risk of future blood clots. Unfortunately, taking this drug also increases your risk of bleeding events, such as hemorrhage and stroke. These side effects are serious and often deadly, as Xarelto’s effects don’t have an antidote.
If you have taken Xarelto and experienced a serious side effect—such as hemorrhaging, stroke, or uncontrollable internal bleeding—you may have legal options in Montgomery County, located in Montgomery, AL.
Dozens of other Montgomery patients like you—who took Xarelto and were harmed by its side effects—have filed lawsuits against the makers and marketers of the drug. These lawsuits claim that those who manufactured and marketed Xarelto to the public did not properly warn patients about the danger of using the drug.
You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. If Xarelto has injured you or a loved one, a Montgomery, AL personal injury lawsuit may compensate you for your losses and hold the makers of Xarelto responsible. You may be able to recover the costs of your medical treatment, emergency room visits, lost income resulting from missed work, and emotional distress. If your loved one passed away, you may have the option of filing a wrongful death lawsuit to punish the drug manufacturer for marketing and selling this dangerous product.
