When she first noticed her irregular heartbeat, “Angela” (not a real person) shrugged it off. She had been working in her garden on a hot day, so her lightheadedness and the strange feeling of heart palpitations just seemed like the signs of fatigue or dehydration. She went inside, laid down for a little while, and resumed her chores when she felt better.
The symptoms persisted, though, even when Angela wasn’t exerting herself. One night, while eating dinner with her husband, the lightheaded feeling returned stronger than ever, her heart started racing, and she nearly collapsed. Her husband rushed her to the hospital immediately.
Her doctor diagnosed her with atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat. The doctor prescribed Xarelto, a popular blood-thinning drug that should help with her symptoms and hopefully prevent the possibility of a more severe event, such as a heart attack. Angela followed the prescribing instructions to the letter and always made sure not to exceed the recommended dosage.
After several weeks on the treatment program, everything seemed fine. Then, one morning, Angela awoke with a start. She had severe pains in her upper chest and barely could manage the strength to roll over to nudge her husband awake. Again, he rushed her to the hospital, and this time the diagnosis was much worse: Angela was suffering from significant internal bleeding and needed to undergo emergency surgery.
Angela couldn’t understand what had gone wrong. As she lay in bed recuperating, her husband began researching and found that Xarelto had been linked to a number of incidents of internal bleeding. The couple contacted a Xarelto injury attorney who reviewed the facts and agreed to take the case.
Meanwhile, Angela’s medical bills were mounting and her health was worse than ever. She didn’t think she had the strength for a drawn-out legal battle but, as she was now unable to work, her family needed help to make ends meet. That was when her lawyer suggested she contact USClaims.
