Xarelto Questions and Answers

 

What is Xarelto?

Xarelto® is a prescription drug.  It’s the brand name of rivaroxaban, the generic drug.

 

What kind of drug is Xarelto?

It’s an anticoagulant.

 

What does that mean?

“Anticoagulants” are sometimes called “blood thinners.”  Essentially, these drugs help to treat and prevent blood clots (where the blood “thickens”).

 

What’s wrong with that?

Xarelto has been linked to uncontrollable bleeding events, usually a hemorrhagic stroke or a gastrointestinal (“GI”) bleed.

 

How serious are these bleeding events?

Usually, these events result in a significant hospitalization that may include one or more blood transfusions.  These events can even lead to death.

 

Is that why there are Xarelto lawsuits?

Yes.  Exactly.

 

But if it’s a prescription drug, do I have to sue my doctor who prescribed it?

No—not at all.  These lawsuits are about Xarelto’s manufacturers.

 

So who should come in to talk about a Xarelto problem?

Anyone who (a) took Xarelto and (b) endured an uncontrolled bleeding/GI event while on Xarelto.  (In other words, our office is looking for cases with no “latency period” between taking the drug and the injury.)

 

What if I only took the generic form of Xarelto?

We are not able to take on cases for people who only took the generic rivaroxaban.

 

Anything else that disqualifies me from moving forward with your firm?

Yes.  We are not accepting ischemic stroke injuries.

 

What else will I need to pursue my claim?

Eventually, diagnosis and/or medical records—but nothing for the first meeting.

 

How long will my case take?

These are exceptionally complex cases that can easily take months to work through, or years to get to trial.
