Xarelto-Related Injury/Death

Xarelto is a prescription drug designed to lower the risk of stroke or blood clotting for patients with atrial fibrillation, treat deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, and reduce the risk of blood clots in knee and hip replacement patients. The drug has been marketed to millions of patients since it received FDA approval in 2011.

Xarelto works as intended for many patients, but it has recently come to light that a number of Xarelto-users have been seriously injured or died due to severe bleeding while on the drug. Xarelto presents dangers that are not present when compared with Warfarin, a similar drug, because although it is far more convenient, Xarelto offers no option for re-thickening the blood after its use, so users who are injured have a significantly higher rate of hemorrhaging . Bayer, a German chemical and pharmaceutical company, manufactures Xarelto and Janssen Pharmaceutica, a subsidiary of Johnson and Johnson, markets it in the United States. Notably, Janssen was previously alleged to have deceptively promoted the antipsychotic drug, Risperdal.

If you or a loved one are a current or former user of Xarelto and have recently suffered or died from internal hemorrhaging, gastrointestinal bleeding, bleeding in the brain, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, or other conditions relating to excessive and uncontrollable bleeding, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury.

Grimes Teich Anderson LLP serves only the victims of negligent parties. Let our experienced team of attorneys represent you. Our personal injury lawyers have handled many cases against negligent corporations, and our firm, along with our national co-counsel, can help secure the evidence to help you get the financial compensation to which you are entitled for your injury, lost wages, pain, and suffering.

Waiting for a major corporation to offer you a settlement can be disappointing and is usually an exercise in futility, as corporations and their attorneys work to protect their own financial interests. Underestimating the value of a claim or waiting too long to file one could cost you many of your legal rights, and if you attempt to handle your case alone even the slightest legal misstep could cost you thousands of dollars.

If you have been injured by the hidden side effects of Xarelto, do not attempt to handle your claim without an experienced personal attorney representing you. Attempting to handle your case without effective representation could cause you to lose out on all or part of the benefits you need.


If you or a loved one suffered internal hemorrhaging, gastrointestinal bleeding, bleeding in the brain, heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, or other conditions relating to excessive and uncontrollable bleeding, or your loved one died, as a result of the side effects of Xarelto, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other costs associated with your illness.
