Wisconsin Xarelto Lawsuits

Wisconsin Xarelto lawsuits

Xarelto aka Rivaroxaban lawsuits in Wisconsin are being investigated by Pasternak & Zirgibel S.C.

Wisconsin Xarelto lawsuits are currently being investigated by Pasternak & Zirgibel S.C.  The primary problem with Xarelto aka Rivaroxaban is internal bleeding, which can cause death or hospitalization.  Xarelto is a blood thinner manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, and marketed by of Bayer Healthcare AG.  Similar to other dangerous drugs, the corporations negligently and recklessly failed to warn doctors and patients of the significant risk of irreversible internal bleeding.  Wisconsin patients prescribed Xarelto were not properly warned of the danger Xarelto presents.  In all likelihood, if patients and doctors were properly instructed as to the danger of Xarelto, they would have been prescribed much safer alternatives, which unlike Xarelto, are reversible and present less danger to patients in Wisconsin.

Xarelto aka Rivaroxaban is a blood thinner that has been over prescribed to baby boomers and others in order to prevent blood clots.  It’s frequently given to patients diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (Afib) or arrhythmia of the heart, deep vein thrombosis or blood clots, pulmonary embolism, stroke, and to those who recently had knee or hip replacements.  In fact, in Wisconsin, it is known that many emergency room doctors were given “free samples” of Xarelto, in order to encourage the prescribing of this more dangerous medication.

If you live in Wisconsin and were prescribed Xarelto, please contact attorney Frank Pasternak at frank@injurywisconsin.com if you suffered uncontrolled blood thinning or internal injuries.  Some injuries that may be actionable include blood clots, low hemoglobin, brain injury, like cerebral hemorrhage, hematomas, edemas, and difficulty breathing.  Even minor activity can be dangerous like small cuts or bruises when patients are given Xarelto.
