Galen M. Hair has recently filed a Xarelto claim in the Eastern District of Louisiana on behalf of the family of a hip replacement patient who died after being administered the drug.
Here's what you need to know about Xarelto:
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a blood-thinning drug approved to reduce the risk of strokes, blood clots, pulmonary embolism, and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). While the drug has been touted as a superior alternative to other drugs, the truth is that it is more dangerous because it can cause uncontrollable internal bleeding. Whereas other drugs have an antidote to this type of side effect, there is no such antidote for Xarelto.
Xarelto may cause the following side effects:
- Abdominal hemorrhages
- Adrenal bleeding
- Intracranial hemorrhages
- Epidural hematoma
- Excessive blood loss
- Retinal hemorrhages
- Wound infection and complication
