Have You Been Hospitalized After Taking Xarelto?

In 2011 the FDA approved a new drug that helps to thin the blood.  Xarelto was designed as a competitor to Coumadin (a medication that requires numerous blood tests to ensure it is working properly) and provides a great benefit to those that are at risk of suffering from blood clots.  Unfortunately, many individuals that have taken Xarelto have been hurt by the drug that they expected to help prevent deadly clots.

The blood thinner medication, also called an anticoagulant, stops even the good blood clots.  Tiny cuts inside the body, which are quite common and generally go unnoticed, fail to repair.  The result is that internal bleeding doesn’t stop, and the result could be deadly.

Have you suffered from any of the side effects listed below?  Have you been hospitalized after taking Xarelto because your body was unable to stop its own bleeding?  Then you need to speak with an attorney from Arentz Law Group P.C. right away.  Fill out the contact form on this page, or call 1-800-305-6000 to speak with an attorney to determine if you are eligible to be reimbursed for medical expenses and other damages caused by this dangerous drug.


“I Have Blood in My Vomit, Could Xarelto Cause this?”

Our throats, stomachs, and intestines are all interconnected in a way to work to efficiently process the nutrients found in foods.  But how many of us have swallowed a potato chip before it was fully chewed?  Or accidently ate a piece of an egg shell?  These may not seem like that big of a deal, but if your body is unable to clot blood, they certainly are.

Any hard pieces of food (or hard pieces of anything in general) can cause tiny little cuts to the throat, stomach, and intestines.  Those who are not taking a blood thinner may notice a bigger scratch in the throat, but most think nothing of it.  However, if you are taking Xarelto, cuts won’t heal on their own.

When those cuts happen in the stomach, blood can pool up in the stomach.  Ingesting blood can make one nauseous, and you end up throwing up.  When that happens, and you notice blood in your vomit, your first step is to go visit your physician to correct the problem before it gets worse.

If you are taking Xarelto, and you have medical expenses because you had to visit the doctor after experiencing blood in your vomit, you need to speak with a personal injury attorney from Arentz Law.  Our attorneys are highly trained and can ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.  Call 1-800-305-6000 to speak with an attorney today.


“I Was Hospitalized with Pink or Brown Urine”

Urine generally has a range of colors from clear to a dark yellow.  In some cases it can be brown due to medication and diet.  Most people know the general colors of their urine and will be able to tell when it falls outside of those ranges.  Red, pink, or brown urine is almost always cause for alarm.

When the body forms an ulcer, or has a small tear, anti-bodies, coagulants, and other cells all jump into play and eliminate the bleeding before anything is really able to be recognized.  However, when a person is taking Xarelto, the body can’t start the repairs.  The blood doesn’t clot, and there is a slow “leak” from the blood into the body.  In the case of discolored urine, the bladder is bleeding.

Have you taken Xarelto?  Have you suffered from pink, red, or brown urine that caused you to incur medical bills?  Then you need to speak with an attorney from Arentz Law today!  Call 1-800-305-6000 to see if you are able to join a Xarelto lawsuit that will help to reimburse you for the expenses that you incurred.


Xarelto Caused Respiratory Problems, Can I File a Lawsuit?

Xarelto has been known to cause difficulty breathing (a condition known as dyspnea).  But in order to know if your difficulty breathing is grounds for a Xarelto lawsuit, you need to know exactly how the breathing problems began, and why they persisted.

Some people are allergic to Xarelto.  Depending on how their body reacts, that reaction could be as minor as a few hives that pop up when the individual starts to take the drug, or it could be as severe as worsening breathing problems as medication use is continued.  Did you speak with your doctor about why you’re having trouble breathing?  If it is because you are allergic to the drug, your attorney at Arentz Law will have to take a different look at your case.

As previously mentioned, Xarelto makes it difficult for the body to stop bleeding on its own.  Usually the problems occur in the gastrointestinal tract (that is from the throat, to the stomach, to the upper and lower intestines).  However, bleeding issues can occur in other places throughout the body.  If that blood accumulates in the chest cavity, it can cause pressure on the lungs.  The result is that you are having trouble breathing because your lungs can’t expand fully.  Did you speak with your doctor about the potential that severe bleeding is taking place inside your body?  Were you fully warned about the potential for severe internal bleeding before you started to take this medication?

Whether your difficulty breathing is from an ulcer or tears inside the body, or from an allergic reaction to the drug, a dangerous drug attorney from Arentz Law Group wants to speak with you.  Schedule your free consultation with an attorney by calling 1-800-305-6000.


Will a Xarelto Lawsuit Reimburse my Medical Expenses?

Suppose you were hospitalized with uncontrollable internal bleeding.  You later found out that the bleeding was because you were taking an anticoagulant drug.  Xarelto, it turns out, was the root issue that your bleeding wouldn’t stop in the first place.  Now you’re left wondering if you have to pay for all of these medical bills, or will Bayer and Johnson & Johnson be required to pay?

You are the exact person that a Xarelto attorney from Arentz Law Group wants to speak with!  You shouldn’t have to pay those medical bills if you were never warned about the possibility that you could suffer from uncontrollable bleeding!  A highly trained dangerous drug attorney will work with you to determine if you are eligible for compensation.

Xarelto earns the parent companies billions of dollars every year (more than $2 billion in 2015 alone).  But that money was earned because they failed to properly warn about all of the side effects associated with this drug.  It has caused unnecessary pain, and could cause death if not treated right away.

Don’t be the victim!  Call 1-800-305-6000 to get started on your Xarelto lawsuit today.


Gastrointestinal Tears and Bleeding Could Cause Death

For many years Coumadin (Warfarin) was the only blood thinner available.  This drug had some downsides that many people didn’t really like: primarily those on the drug had to go in for regular blood draws to make sure that their dosage was correct.

When Xarelto (and other anticoagulants like Pradaxa and Eliquis) came onto the market many people switched despite their much higher costs.  Xarelto doesn’t require regular blood draws, and is more appealing to those that need a blood thinning medication.  The problem, however, is that the patients weren’t told that there is no way to reverse the effects of the medication.

Coumadin thins the blood in a similar manner as Xarelto.  However, if bleeding issues arise, those taking Coumadin can take a sudden influx of vitamin K and effectively reverse the anticoagulant.  There is no reversal option for Xarelto.

If a patient that is taking Xarelto suffers from internal bleeding, and they aren’t aware of the issue or aren’t aware of how serious the issue actually is, the results could be fatal.  The bleeding will persist until the medication has left the body’s system, but many people continue to take the drug not realizing what is happening.  The result is that severe bleeding leads to death.

Has a loved one passed away from internal bleeding?  Were they taking Xarelto when it happened?  Their death could have been caused by the medication that they took.  Johnson & Johnson (along with Bayer) developed this drug, but failed to completely warn the public about the risks associated with taking this blood thinner.

If your loved one passed away due to bleeding issues while on Xarelto, you need to speak with a Xarelto attorney from Arentz Law Group P.C. today.  Call 1-800-305-6000 to speak with a lawyer and find out how you can start recovering from the financial impacts this drug has made on your life.


Chest Tightness?  Painful Swelling?  Fever?  Inflammation?  Know the Signs of Xarelto Side Effects

In order to know if you can file a Xarelto lawsuit, you need to know the signs and symptoms of Xarelto side effects.  If you have experienced these, or if a family member has passed away because of these symptoms, then you need to call us immediately!

Have you experienced any of these potentially deadly side effects of using this drug?

Brain Hemorrhage – While internal bleeding is never something you want to ignore, bleeding in and around the brain can be deadly much faster.

Abdominal Hemorrhage – The most common hemorrhaging experienced while taking Xarelto.  This bleeding is anywhere in the throat, stomach, or intestines (including the surrounding areas).

Spinal Epidural Hematoma – This rare condition occurs when blood accumulates between the dura (a thin membrane that covers the spinal cord) and the bone.

Abnormal Liver – One side effect of Xarelto is that your liver stops working the way it should.  This often manifests itself as jaundice.

Less Severe Side Effects – Some side effects are due to the body reacting to the drug.  These should be monitored and examined if they progress.  They include: rash, itching skin, indigestion, muscle or joint pain, fatigue, and some others.

Keep in mind that these are the side effects!  Your symptoms may show up as a skin rash, pain in your stomach or gut, a tight chest, difficulty breathing, a fever that won’t go away, swollen joints and painful muscles.  If you are taking Xarelto, and you aren’t feeling “right” then you should get looked at by a medical professional right away.  Catching these problems early on is the best way to make sure they don’t end up being fatal!

Any time a drug is taken there will be some side effects.  However, the drug company has the responsibility of warning the consumer about all the potential side effects.  J&J and Bayer failed to do so.  As a result the company has earned billions in profits from this drug; all while putting innocent people at risk of developing deadly side effects.

Have you needed medical intervention because of side effects caused by Xarelto?  Has a loved one died due to complications with any of these side effects (or others directly related to Xarelto use)?  You don’t have to just sit back and take it!  The drug manufacturers need to know that they must be held responsible for the damages they have caused.

Schedule your free consultation with an attorney from Arentz Law Group today by calling 1-800-305-6000.  You deserve compensation for the pain and suffering caused by this dangerous drug.


Xarelto Lawsuits are MDL Suits

When Xarelto lawsuits started to be filed, they came on quickly and from many different areas of the country.  Because of this, they have been combined into a federal MDL suit.  Here’s what that means.

When there are many lawsuits from many different areas that are all alleging the same thing, the courts decide that it’s not worth the time to keep hearing essentially the same case over and over.  Instead of many trials, they combine it into what is called a Multidistrict Litigation, or MDL for short.  Now the case only has to be argued once, and as long as any subsequent cases meet the criteria they are added on as plaintiffs.

What you can expect if you take part in an MDL suit against the makers of Xarelto is complete justice and compensation for the damages and suffering that you have experienced!  An MDL doesn’t mean that you won’t receive compensation; it does mean that the process is streamlined and easier!

To oversee this MDL, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has chosen Judge Fallon in New Orleans.  Judge Fallon has a lot of experience in MDL cases, and is a trustworthy resource for the Xarelto suits.

Are you wondering if you can take part in the Xarelto MDL lawsuit?  You need to speak with an attorney to determine if you have a case!  Call a dangerous drug attorney at 1-800-305-6000 to find out if you are eligible to receive compensation for pain, suffering, and medical expenses incurred by this dangerous drug.

Xarelto was set out to be an exciting alternative to a drug that required a lot of monitoring.  It works well and has helped people who would otherwise be prone to blood clots.  But there is a major flaw: it works too well and can cause otherwise healthy patients to suffer from some very severe internal bleeding!  To make it even worse, Johnson & Johnson, along with Bayer, the makers of this drug never fully warned the public about the potential for these deadly side effects.

Arentz Law Group P.C. believes that you shouldn’t be left responsible for the expenses caused by this exclusion of information.  The damage has been done to your body or to a loved one, and you shouldn’t have to spend your savings to take care of those bills!
