The blood-thinner Xarelto can cause uncontrolled bleeding — a dangerous and possibly fatal side effect for which there is no antidote. A lawsuit is pending that was filed against the manufacturer of Xarelto (Janssen Pharmaceutical) and the co-marketer (Bayer Healthcare), and it states that these companies failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of fatal internal bleeding when using Xarelto. If these companies had warned of the risks, then patients would have been prescribed the drug warfarin, a medication in which internal bleeding can be treated with dosages of Vitamin K, which could have prevented many of the injuries that Xarelto has caused.
Steve Harrelson, an experienced Little Rock personal injury lawyer, is equipped to investigate and litigate Xarelto claims. Steve has been the go-to source to review, investigate, and litigate such claims that are referred by other attorneys inexperienced in this specialty, and also by injured patients who have sought out a firm to handle a Xarelto claim..
