Xarelto Side Effects
Xarelto, an anticoagulant drug used as a blood thinner, was introduced in the United States in 2011. Since then, the drug has become commonly used, with nearly 7 million people taking the drug worldwide. While the drug was initially promising, many lawsuits have come up recently due to the horrible side effects the drug can cause. The companies that manufacture Xarelto, including Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Bayer, are now facing legal action.
The legal team at Williams Kherkher in particular has become dedicated to representing victims of Xarelto side effects. One of the most dangerous Xarelto side effects is excessive bleeding. Xarelto can cause blood to pool under the skull and induce hemorrhages in the brain. Sadly, these side effects are known to be deadly. If you or a loved one has been affected by these or other side effects related to this drug, our Xarelto side effects lawyers may be able to help you pursue financial compensation from the liable pharmaceutical companies to help cover resulting medical costs and any other expenses.
