When Xarelto was initially released in 2011, it did not have an antidote that could reverse internal or external bleeding that could occur due to surgery, an accident, or a side effect of the drug. Warfarin, on the other hand, has a reversing agent that can quickly stop the effects of the drug to stop bleeding fast. According to several lawsuits and safety officials, the makers of Xarelto did not adequately warn physicians or patients as to the lack of an antidote and the related serious risks of ongoing bleeding. Anyone who has suffered an injury due to Xarelto may be eligible to seek compensation from the makers of this dangerous drug. Injuries linked to Xarelto can inflict financial hardships on patients. Xarelto victims may be able to seek compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other ongoing disabilities stemming from the drug.

Injuries Caused By Drunk Drivers: Is the bar to blame?


With respect to a restaurant or bar’s duty to protect its patrons, premises liability law unequivocally requires that property owners regularly inspect the common areas and do away with any hazards and dangerous situations. However, what is a bar owner’s duty to protect unsuspecting third parties in the event a patron leaves under the influence and injuries someone on the way home? While states differ on their take on this issue, the Texas “Dram Shop Laws” work to apply to this very situation – and bar owners might not like the answer.

The Dram Shop Law is found in Chapter 2 of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, and specifically holds a bar or restaurant liable for injuries caused as a result of beverage service if: (1) it was apparent to the provider that the individual being sold, served, or provided with an alcoholic beverage was obviously intoxicated to the extent that he presented a clear danger to himself and others; and (2) the intoxication of the recipient of the alcoholic beverage was a proximate cause of the damages suffered.
