Information has been released about the high health risks of taking the blood thinning medication called Xarelto. Typically, blood thinners come with various levels of risk, and proper protocol leads drug companies and health institutions to thoroughly explain these risks before prescribing medication. The drug Xarelto has come under fire lately for causing a series of extreme side effects that were not properly described to patients.

The most threatening side effects released are-

  • Uncontrollable bleeding
  • Internal hemorrhaging
  • Bleeding in the brain
  • Blood clot
  • Embolism

These side effects have lead to hospitalization and death in certain cases. Claims against the drug say there was no prior knowledge given about the risks or their severity. In such cases, the responsible party can be held accountable for the cost of care as well as any lost wages in response to one of the side effects. They could even be held responsible for compensating the financial and emotional toll of the patient and family dealing with the serious injury or death caused by Xarelto.

If you or a loved one has been struggling with these dangerous side effects of Xarelto, call a lawyer today. Having a dedicated professional on your side in such times is an invaluable asset.
