The Strom Law Firm, L.L.C. is currently investigating and evaluating cases on behalf of individuals who have suffered serious side effects of Eliquis. Several patients filed lawsuits alleging that Eliquis (apixaban), an anti-stroke medication, puts patients at risk for irreversible and life-threatening internal bleeding. Similar to previous class action cases we have handled, Pradaxa and Xarelto, Eliquis was approved without a reversal mechanism.
If an Eliquis patient suffers a bleeding event, there may be no way to deactivate the medication, and allow the blood to clot. As a result, patients are at risk for severe internal bleeding and death. Give us a call today for a free consultation with our Eliquis Lawyers at 803.252.4800.

The most common side effects suffered by Eliquis patients include:
- Gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, or bleeding in the digestive tract,
- Rectal bleeding
- Kidney bleeding
