Defective Drug Xarelto Settlement Case

What is Xarelto?

Ideally, Xarelto functions to prevent blood clots in patients who have conditions such as atrial fibrillation, aslo known as arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat, or who have had hip surgery. The medication works by thinning the blood and is known as an anticoagulant. Unfortunately, this can become hazardous if one has an accident or injury that leads to external or internal bleeding because Xarelto inhibits one’s blood from coagulating. Patients taking Xarelto have exhibited very dangerous side effects, including excessive bleeding and internal bleeding.
