Victims of Xarelto are spending extended periods of time in the hospital as doctors struggle to stop their bleeding. Until recently, doctors were not connecting that many patients suffering with severe internal bleeding were suffering from effects of Xarelto. This is due mainly to the false advertising on the packaging and in commercials for the drug.
Those who have suffered or seen loved ones suffer from the severe side effects of Xarelto, are seeking Lawyers to take action against Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Bayer. In a similar case of false advertising, the supplier and marketing company awarded over $650 million to victims of Pradaxa who suffered severe internal bleeding were.
