If you have experienced adverse health effects or lost a loved one who took the blood-thinning medication Xarelto, you are not alone. The subject of a recent TV ad blitz starring Arnold Palmer, Xarelto has recently been linked to potentially fatal bleeding and stroke. Wites Law Firm is investigating and aggressively pursuing claims for compensation on behalf of those who have suffered after taking Xatelto.
Xarelto (rivaroxaban) was first approved by the FDA in July of 2011 to reduce the risk of blood clots and stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation, treat deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms, and reduce the risk of blood clots in patients undergoing knee or hip replacement surgery.
However, since its introduction a mere four years ago, Xarelto has become equally known for its potential side effects and serious health risks. Xarelto side effects are being reported at a rate of 2 to 1 over Pradaxa, the other new relatively new drug thinner on the market.
The most common risks associated with Xarelto include:
A 2012 study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery also illustrated the increased risk of wound infections and complications for hip and knee replacement patients taking Xarelto. Despite these warning signs, many doctors and healthcare providers continue to prescribe Xarelto without thoroughly examining a patient’s risk status or explaining the enhanced risk level to patients.
Lawsuits are currently being filed on behalf of patients who have suffered serious side effects and adverse health consequences because of Xarelto, and new claims and reports of injury arise on a regular basis.
If you have questions or concerns about Xarelto, its side effects, and whether you may have a claim for compensation, please give us a call at 866-277-8631 or 954-933-4400, or contact us online to schedule a free consultation.

Mr. Wites accepted my case when other lawyers would not. He never promised what he couldn’t deliver. He was realistic, upfront and honest. He actually returns phone calls. And he is willing to explain the legal process and to take time to answer questions. I would definitely contact Mr. Wites if I ever needed a lawyer again.Karla
