Xarelto Lawsuit Lawyer

Xarelto Class Action Lawsuit Attorney

RETAIN COUNSEL FROM A TRUSTED ATLANTA PRODUCT LIABILITY LAWYER

Xarelto was placed on the market in 2011. Not long after its release, patients began complaining about some very severe side effects. One of the most distressing of these side effects is uncontrollable bleeding, which can be a potentially lethal condition.
Approximately 1,400 deaths have been thought to be caused by the effects of Xarelto. This has prompted thousands of lawsuits in the few years that the drug has been made publicly available.

WHAT ADVERSE EFFECTS HAS XARELTO CAUSED?

Xarelto has been known to cause serious side effects, including several life-threatening side effects. This drug is a blood thinner, typically prescribed to prevent blood clots and prevent stroke. Some of the more prominent pharmaceutical companies that have produced Xarelto, such as Bayer and Johnson & Johnson, have been targeted in thousands of personal injury lawsuits.
Some of the terrible effects cited by Xarelto users include:

  • Bleeding in the organs
  • Back pain
  • Bloody stools
  • Prickling, tingling, or numbness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Paralysis
  • Uncontrollable bleeding

Allegations in many of the complaints draw attention to the fact that Xarelto does not have an emergency antidote, unlike other types of blood thinner medications. This means there is no way to prevent the uncontrollable bleeding. Plaintiffs are alleging that this potential danger was either misrepresented or not made aware of them before receiving this drug.

Summary

I was involved in a vehicle accident August 15, 2012. When the accident happened I called another large firm in the Atlanta area. Eventually my case was referred to Mr. Jason Schneider. Once Mr. Schneider received my case everything began to change and I felt like he was working in my favor. Mr. Schneider did an excellent job of dealing with the insurance company and getting them to pay what was owed to me. Mr. Schneider helped me when my situation became an emergency. He made sure I understood what would happen with my case financially if I went ahead with the emergency surgery. The surgery would basically take all the money that the insurance would pay and I may still owe some money. In the end I was surprised to receive an email a year later saying that I had a checking waiting for me at Mr. Schneider’s office. I had completely accepted the fact that I would not receive anything but my back would be somewhat better. If you are searching for an attorney who is going to work in your favor and make sure you know what’s going on with your case I suggest you call Mr. Jason Schneider right now.
