Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is a blood-thinning medication that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent blood clotting in stroke patients with heart rhythm problems known as atrial fibrillation. The effectiveness and safety of this drug has become a big concern because it lacks rapid reversal agents in the event of serious side effects such as internal bleeding.
Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. represents clients in mass tort personal injury cases. We are currently investigating potential claims on behalf of individuals who have had serious medical problems after taking Xarelto. This medication has resulted in excess blood for many patients, causing them to have serious side effects such as coughing and vomiting blood, blood in their urine and swollen arms or legs. If you are one of these injured individuals, we can help you get the compensation that you deserve.
The FDA approved Xarelto in 2011 to reduce the risk of blood clots, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism in patients who had knee and hip replacement procedures. Less than one year after the approval and prescription of the drug, more than 350 Xarelto-related injuries and deaths were reported to the FDA.
The most common problem that Xarelto patients have complained of is pulmonary embolism, which is one of the blood clot-related injuries the medication was supposed to treat and prevent. Moreover, the majority of these patients reported taking Xarelto on a short-term basis following a surgery.
Two pharmaceutical companies, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson, jointly manufacture Xarelto. Both of these companies are facing numerous lawsuits alleging that Xarelto is dangerous and defective.
One of the major allegations is that, unlike other traditional anticoagulants, the blood-thinning effects of Xarelto cannot be reversed using vitamin K or any other antidote. Doctors do not have an effective means of stopping Xarelto patients from bleeding in an emergency. As a result, the lawsuits allege serious and fatal injuries, such as gastrointestinal bleeding and cerebral hemorrhaging.
Other allegations in Xarelto lawsuits include:
If you or someone you love has experienced serious side effects after taking Xarelto, you should immediately consult with an experienced New York Xarelto lawyer as you may be entitled to compensation.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
Jeff Korek has been outstanding in accomplishing a settlement of my lawsuit. He has done everything that a client would ask of his lawyer. He and his staff have always been honest, informative,and trust worthy . His reputation as a lawyer who gets the job done has truly been earned. For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
