Aggressive Mississippi Drug Liability Lawyers Fighting for Xarelto Users
Skilled representation for victims of a dangerous blood-thinning drug
Xarelto is a prescription medication used by thousands of patients to treat dangerous blood clots. It is widely marketed as being superior to traditional blood thinners, but reports of serious side effects have led to mass tort liability claims across the country.

People who took Xarelto relied on this medication to improve their health, not lead to further complications. Our knowledgeable Mississippi defective medical product lawyers have provided top-notch legal assistance to numerous individuals harmed by medications and medical devices. Let us put more than three decades of experience to work in your Xarelto injury case.
Obtaining compensation for dangerous Xarelto side effects
Xarelto’s widespread usage is due in large part to an aggressive marketing campaign, undertaken by drug maker Janssen Pharmaceutica. Having received multiple warnings from the Food and Drug Administration, Janssen was reportedly accused of minimizing the risk of uncontrollable bleeding risks associated with the medication’s active ingredient, rivaroxaban.
In lawsuits nationwide, Xarelto users have claimed severe side effects from taking the medication, including such serious complications as:
- Intracranial hemorrhages
- Abdominal hemorrhages
- Wound infection and complication
- Epidural hematoma
- Adrenal bleeding
- Excessive loss of blood
- Wrongful death
