Injuries And Deaths Linked To Xarelto

Xarelto is the market brand name for a class of prescription drugs jointly manufactured by the pharmaceutical giant Bayer, prescribed to reduce blood clots leading to stroke in people diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. Although the drug has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there have been many recent cases of serious injuries and deaths resulting from severe hemorrhaging, an unforeseen side-effect.

Other serious injuries reportedly linked to Xarelto side-effects and complications include severe hematoma (blood build-up on the brain) and blood clots forming in the liver and other internal organs. These serious complications are not included in the list of known side-effects reported at the time the product was approved and made available on the U.S. market.

FDA approval in 2011 does not mean Bayer is not liable for the injuries and wrongful deaths Xeralto and other prescription products have caused over the years.
