Ongoing Levaquin Litagation Reporting
Levaquin, a prescription drug associated with severe side effects, is currently being investigated by law firms for upcoming cases. The national law offices of Nadrich and Cohen want you to be aware of the ongoing progress being made for upcoming cases.
On this personal injury blog, we will continue to post on the current status of Levaquin litigation as well as report on advancements in progress towards the first case appearing in court.
Levaquin, an antibiotic used for adults, is primarily used to treat bacterial infections. Of the severe side effects reported about this drug, liver failure and tendon damage tend to be the most common.
Current Status of Levaquin in the Courts
It seems that claims involving tendon damage are taking center stage in the first cases against Levaquin. AboutLawsuits.com reports that all of the federal Levaquin lawsuits have been consolidated.
These cases have been consolidated in an MDL to be set before Judge John R. Tunheim of the U.S. district Court for the District of Minnesota. While cases are not yet ‘trial ready’ there are indications that point to January 2010 being the expected date of the first cases.
So what are these Levaquin lawsuits claiming exactly? The claim, as reported by AboutLawsuits.com, is that victims who have suffered severe tendon damage as result of Levaquim were not warned of these severe side effects.
The claim is that Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately warn Levaquin users by not providing adequate warnings about the potentially debilitating side effects of their antibiotic.
If you or someone you love has found their selves suffering from these severe side effects, you may be entitled to compensation. Levaquim attorneys such as Nadrich and Cohen can help.
