Martzell, Bickford & Centola recently filed a lawsuit against the manufacturers and distributors of Xarelto for the wrongful death of a client. The client's death was a direct result of taking Xarelto. Xarelto is a blood thinner (anticoagulant) used to reduce the risk of stroke and systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, unlike other blood thinners on the market, Xarelto lacks a reversal agent. Thus, if a patient develops an internal bleed, the blood cannot clot, and the bleeding can ultimately lead to death. If you or someone you know has taken Xarelto, or if you have any questions, please contact the attorneys at Martzell, Bickford & Centola.
