Xarelto, active ingredient rivaroxaban, is a prescription drug that is designed to reduce the risk of stroke in those with certain conditions. The drug works by preventing platelets in the blood from clumping, therefore thinning the blood and preventing a blood clot from occurring. However, the drug’s key characteristic—the ability to thin a patient’s blood—is also its most dangerous one; the use of Xarelto can lead to excessive and fatal bleeding. Many of those who have been harmed as a direct result of taking Xarelto have filed a lawsuit directly against Xarelto’s manufacturers and marketers, Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Bayer AG.

Each state has its own statute of limitations in which you are legally allowed to file your claim within. Depending upon where you live, your time limit may have already expired. Because of this, it is essential that you consult with a defective pharmaceutical attorney as soon as possible.
