Xarelto Lawsuit Attorneys
Hospitalized due to bleeding while taking Xarelto?
If you or a loved one has been hospitalized due to a serious bleeding event you may have a claim against the manufacturers and marketers of the anticoagulant Xarelto. If so, you will need the help of our experienced Dallas Xarelto Lawsuit Lawyer, Jeff Benton.
What is Xarelto?
Xarelto is a prescription blood thinner manufactured by Bayer and marketed by Johnson & Johnson. In 2011 the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved the use of Xarelto to treat deep vein thrombosis (“DVT”) in patients who had undergone hip or knee replacement surgery, but Xarelto has also been used to treat patients with abnormal atrial fibrillation.

- Intercranial Hemorrhages
