*Cipro, Levaquin or Avelox Lawsuits*
As you know, from time to time, and wanting the best results for our clients, our firm teams up with some of the best lawyers in the nation to broaden the scope of our services to our clients.
More than 26 million Americans receive a prescription for what is known as a “fluoroquinolone” antibiotic like Cipro, Levaquin or Avelox each year. These drugs treat a wide variety of infections. Unfortunately, they are also linked to dangerous side effects like tendon ruptures, permanent nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) aortic aneurysms (bulges) or
In severe cases resulting to damage to the aorta, (the largest blood vessel in the body), this damage can lead to strokes, heart attacks and even death.
Nationally coordinated lawsuits have been commenced against the drug makers, Johnson & Johnson and its Janssen unit, claiming the druggiant deliberately downplayed side effects of the medication to boost profits, and that J&J mislabeled and misbranded these widely prescribed drugs.
As we have done over the years, our office is working in conjunction with one of the top national firms appointed in the Multi-District Litigation as lead counsel to handle these cases. This has allowed our clients to continue to receive individual attention on their claims, rather than just being treated as a “number.”
If you, or a friend or family member, have been prescribed one of these drugs (see below**) and have experienced any of the negative side effects from one of these drugs, you may have a right of action and potential recovery for your injuries.
Of course, not all users of these drugs will have qualifying cases, or fall within the categories necessary for a right of recovery, but in the event any of the above symptoms have presented to you, a friend, or loved one, please contact our office to discuss.
