Taking anticoagulants that thin your blood can be an effective way to help those who are prone to heart attacks or stroke prevent such a health event from occurring. But it’s important to know that consuming certain versions of these drugs—like Xarelto— can also prevent your body from stopping a bleeding event if one occurs.
A study published by the National Institutes of Health showed patients who take Xarelto and either undergo hip surgery, suffer from Acute Coronary Syndrome, or are acutely ill are at an increased risk of being unable to stop bleeding. This particular Xarelto side effect has proven deadly to patients in the past.
If you’re taking Xarelto, it’s important to not only be aware of the risks involved with taking the drug, but also your legal rights. If you’ve suffered an injury associated with taking this particular medicine, you may be able to file a Xarelto drug injury lawsuit. But proving such a case can often be a difficult process.
That’s why it’s important to have a California personal injury lawyer by your side through each step of the civil litigation process.
