What can I include as damages after an injury caused by Xarelto use?

With hundreds of lawsuits currently pending, the dangers associated with the use of the drug Xarelto are becoming well known against the medical and patient communities. This drug was originally marketed as a “better” alternative to popular blood-thinner Coumadin, due to its lack of monitoring requirement. Unfortunately, many patients who took the drug later suffered serious injuries or even death as a result. Several of these patients are now pursuing legal action against the designer, manufacturer, and marketers of this medication. Some of these lawsuits accuse the defendants of fraudulent misrepresentation. If you were injured after taking Xarelto, you may be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation as a result of your damages.
