Compensation for Tendon Injuries Linked to Levaquin

When prescription drug manufacturers put their products out in the marketplace, they impact many lives. Depending on the distribution, a new drug could have an impact — positive or negative — on thousands or even millions of people within a few years of its release. For this reason, prescription drug companies have a responsibility to do proper research and let doctors and potential patients know about any increased risks associated with their products.

Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceuticals, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, failed to reveal the serious risks involved with its Levaquin product. If you are one of the many people who have suffered tendinitis, tendon rupture or other serious injuries as a result of using Levaquin, contact us.

Tendinitis and Other Injuries Caused by Levaquin

Levaquin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections, often when other antibiotics prove ineffective. Since its introduction, Levaquin has been linked to:

  • Tendinitis
  • Tendon rupture
  • Extreme pain
  • Achilles heel ruptures
  • Rotator cuff damage
  • Other serious side effects

Levaquin is particularly dangerous when combined with steroids or other drugs. It is important to talk with a doctor and an attorney if you have suffered any of these side effects from Levaquin. At Galligan Reid PC, we have a highly skilled nurse consultant on staff who can help you understand your medical condition, and an attorney from our firm can help you understand your possible dangerous drug claim.
