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.

xarelto liver injury, Chicago personal injury lawyers

While the majority of injury claims associated with Xarelto involve serious, uncontrollable, and irreversible bleeding, other side effects have begun to surface. One such adverse event, as highlighted in a 2014 publication in JAMA Internal Medicine and an investigation conducted by Health Canada, is the potential for severe and systemic drug-induced liver damage. Dangerous, in and of itself, this risk is not made known to doctors or patients, giving it all the potential and markings needed for becoming a silent, widespread killer.

Originally intended to reduce the risk of blood clots and decrease the risk of stroke, rivaroxaban (Xarelto) is one of the newest anticoagulants on the market. It has also been linked to more than 2,000 injuries. With the injuries accumulating at an alarming pace—including those that involve uncontrollable and irreversible bleeding of the gastrointestinal tract—one must wonder how or why they continue to not only market this potentially deadly drug. Even worse, some are trying to extend its use to treat other conditions.

As more women choose to deliver their babies at home, many to wonder whether delivering at home is as safe as delivering in the hospital.  We now have some data.  According to a special article in the New England Journal of Medicine, the risk of a baby dying was 3.9 per 1,000 births for deliveries at home or at birth centers, versus 1.8 deaths per 1,000 births in hospitals.  These data would seem to confirm the idea that when complications occur, it takes trained medical personnel and the best equipment to promptly address such complications.  However, hospital personnel still need to be vigilant and responsive to avoid the mistakes and delays that can cause devastating outcomes.  A good obstetrician with a well-trained labor and delivery staff and the best equipment seems to provide the best chance of delivering a healthy baby.
