Xarelto Injury Lawsuits is offering comprehensive information on the rapidly developing lawsuit over alleged dangers in using Xarelto, with more than four hundred cases currently consolidated.
Beverly Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2015 -- Xarelto is a prescription blood thinning drug used for a wide variety of conditions. Perhaps due to its prevalence of use, lawsuits have increased dramatically over the last year. As of December 2015, the Xarelto multidistrict litigation (MDL 2592) cited 33 cases. In May of 2015, indications suggest that this number has reached 434, all consolidated ready to be taken for initial proceedings before a US District Judge, Eldon E. Fallon. With so many lawsuits being raised, other users may be seeking legal help for Xarelto side effects, and The Meldofsky Firm has created a resource center for those searching for a Xarelto lawyer.
The resource center explains that Warfarin and Xarelto are anticoagulants that lower the risk of blood clots, but this can risk hemorrhaging which cannot be controlled without an antidote. Warfarin has an antidote, vitamin K, which can reverse the effects if they reach dangerous levels. Xarelto has no such approved antidote.
The lawsuits filed thus far have been based on the argument that patients were not adequately informed that Xarelto had no antidote, unlike the preceding drug Warfarin, which did. This allegedly means that patients who switched from Warfarin to Xarelto were put at risk of catastrophic and uncontrollable bleeding, resulting in serious injury or even death.
A spokesperson for XareltoInjuryLawsuits.info explained, "Our legal team is documenting the case as it develops to ensure others who may be affected are suitably informed of the proceedings undertaken by people in the same position. Our lawyers are actively pursuing this legal action on behalf of clients to ensure justice is served, and gathering the information together in a resource center allows for clear, independent and insightful information to be shared in a dispassionate manner, so individuals can evaluate their own circumstances and see if legal action is the right recourse.
