Patients charge that Xarelto is a dangerous and defective drug because in certain patients it triggers uncontrolled bleeding and other life-threatening complications. Xarelto was approved in July 2011 to prevent blood clots in patients undergoing knee and hip surgeries, and its use has been expanded, including to patients with irregular heartbeats or facing a strong likelihood of blood clots in the legs or lungs.
Lieff Cabraser attorney Wendy Fleishman has produced this video summarizing the dangers of Xarelto and the rights of patients harmed by the drug. You can view the video below.

The Xarelto lawsuits allege that the drug can cause major bleeding in the GI tract. If a Xarelto patient has an emergency bleeding event — such as from a severe injury or major brain or GI tract bleeding — the results can be fatal.
