Have you taken Xarelto and experienced a serious bleeding injury? Many patients allege that they have suffered bleeding events while taking Xarelto. If an unfortunate experience like this has happened to you, there are some important steps you must take to determine whether or not you can file a lawsuit, and whether or not you may receive compensation from the drugmakers.

Seek Medical Attention First!

First and foremost, don’t ever stop taking your medication without your doctor’s recommendation. If internal bleeding occurs, the first thing you must do is seek medical attention immediately. This can be a confusing and stressful time for you and your family. When you are ready, you can begin thinking about hiring a personal injury lawyer who has investigated these cases, and is knowledgeable about representing victims who have been injured while taking Xarelto. There are more steps you can take, that your personal injury attorney should share with you, which can aid you in your lawsuit against the negligent drug manufacturers.

  1. Collect any evidence that may be available to you, including prescription records, hospital visits, hospital bills, lost work wages, and any medical records that are relative to your injury.
  2. Write down everything that has happened to you leading up to your hospitalization, injury or the death of your loved one.
  3. If you speak to doctors, lawyers, or your health insurance agency, be sure to take notes about your conversation.

Settling a personal injury claim can be time consuming. If you fail to file your claim in a timely manner, you might be out of luck, and can lose the opportunity for receiving just compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and more.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

Because of laws called “statutes of limitations”, you have a maximum amount of time to bring certain types of lawsuits. If this time passes, you may be unable to ever file suit against the drug makers for your injuries.
