Choosing the Right Attorney for Your Xarelto Injury Case

Posted on in Prescription Drugs

By Shawn Kasserman

choosing an attorney, Chicago xarelto injury lawyersBayer and Janssen Pharmaceuticals are now facing more than 2,000 lawsuits for their widely used anticoagulant, Xarelto. All share the common thread of pain, injury, and loss. But each case is also unique, varied by its circumstances and level of loss, which can impact on the overall success and outcome. Individual attorneys also represent most. This, too, can impact how much compensation they may or may not receive.

All of this may be frightening to think about, especially if you are considering joining the Xarelto lawsuit cases. Maybe your life may have been drastically altered, or maybe someone you love may have suffered a wrongful death. Whatever your situation, it is important to recognize that you do have control over how you proceed and that there are people who genuinely want to help.

Focus on What You Can Control

While it may feel as though you have little to no control over your life after an injury or loss, particularly when it comes to the outcome of a lawsuit, the real truth is that you have quite a bit of control.

You get to decide who will represent your case, and that can have a profound impact on how your case will proceed—whether a Xarelto injury case will make your life more stressful, or if you will feel at ease knowing that the matter is being effectively handled; whether you will feel confused during the process or informed; and if you will be able to appeal your case if you receive an unfavorable outcome.

It is this knowledge, and the power you inevitably hold, that should drive you in your determination to find the right attorney for your Xarelto injury claim. You do not have to settle for mediocre. And you have the right to make an educated, well-informed decision.

What to Look for in a Xarelto Injury Attorney

There are many important qualities to consider when determining which attorney might best represent your Xarelto injury case. Most of these characteristics should be found in any attorney you choose, regardless of what they are being hired for. These qualities include:

  • Honesty: Are they forthcoming about the difficult journey ahead, or do they seem overly optimistic?
  • Availability: Are they willing to make themselves available to you throughout the case, or do they seem put-off by your desire to call with concerns?
  • Effective Communication: Do they use a lot of legal terms without taking any extra time or effort to make sure you understand?
  • Compassion: Do you get the impression that your prospective attorney truly cares about your loss and how it has impacted your life?
  • Rapport: Do you feel as though they have made the effort to make you feel comfortable and at ease, or do they seem cold and distant?

In addition to these qualities, you should look for an attorney that can provide both experience in product liability cases and successes. Not every attorney is skilled in the area of product liability, and even fewer may have ever won against large and powerful manufacturers like Xarelto. This can have a massive impact on how well your case is represented, and how prepared your attorney will be.
