Xarelto Lawsuit Filed in Texas

What types of personal injuries are linked to Xarelto use?

Today it seems as if there is a medication for everything from dry eyes to low sex drive; new drugs are popping up all over the market. Sometimes, however, it seems as if the benefits of taking one of these medications are outweighed by the possibility that you might experience one of their serious side effects. People across the country, for example, are complaining about personal injuries they believe they suffered as a result of taking the medication Xarelto.

Xarelto is a blood-thinning medication prescribed to prevent blood clots, deep vein and stent thrombosis in patients with various issues. The side effects of the medication, however, are more than the users bargained for. It seems that the drug may result is such serious issues as heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, epidural hematoma, internal, brain and gastrointestinal bleeding. Unfortunately, many users experienced these side effects. This has led to a number of lawsuits being brought throughout the United States. 

One lawsuit was brought in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana.  This lawsuit includes numerous claims of injury caused by Xarelto as well as the allegation that the manufacturers of the drug failed to warn users of the serious adverse side effects that could result.

Recently, a man from Texas has brought a Xarelto lawsuit naming manufacturers Bayer AG and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. as defendants. He claims personal injuries as the result of using the drug and asserts that the drug manufacturers were negligent in the representation of the drug's safety.

You should know that there are many drugs whose serious side effects have led to personal injury and class action lawsuits in the United States. In fact, this type of litigation has been going on for years. If you have taken a drug or used a medical device that caused you injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. If this is the case, you need a dedicated Texas personal injury attorney to fight for you.
