Filing a Lawsuit Against Xarelto’s Manufacturers

If you are a former Xarelto patient and developed uncontrollable bleeding or other serious symptoms after taking the medication, you may have grounds for legal action. Since Xarelto’s manufacturers failed to properly warn the public of these serious risks, these entities may be liable for the damages that patients suffered as a result of the medication. Through a product liability lawsuit, you can recover compensation for the economic and non-economic losses you endured, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

To successfully prove a Xarelto lawsuit in Missouri civil court, you will need to provide sufficient evidence to prove four key facts.

  • You were injured or suffered losses.
  • Xarelto is defective.
  • Xarelto’s defect caused your injuries.
  • You were using Xarelto as the manufacturer intended.

What to Do After Experiencing a Xarelto-Related Injury

If you have been injured after taking Xarelto, it is important to seek medical attention immediately and save all records related to your treatment and injuries. You should also save all documents pertaining to your Xarelto use—including empty prescription bottles, notes from your doctor, and receipts from the pharmacy. This evidence will help prove that you were a former Xarelto patient and took the medication according to your doctor’s orders, as well as the nature and extent of your injuries.
