Levaquin Peripheral Neuropathy

ATTENTION HAVE YOU TAKEN THE DRUG LEVAQUIN? IF SO, PLEASE, LISTEN TO THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE. Millions of lives have been saved becauseof the discovery of antibiotics. Fluoroquinolones are a type of powerful antibiotic which havebeen used to treat serious and lifethreatening bacterial infections. These fluoroquinolonesinclude the antibiotic drug, Levaquin. However, Levaquin has often been prescribedfor less serious ailments, such as sinus infections or ear infections, as well as other problemsthat could be treated with antibiotics that aren't quite as potent. This has resultedin many people developing Levaquin peripheral

neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the nervesthat carry information from the brain to the central nervous system have become damaged.This results in a variety of symptoms and many people have become disabled due to theuse of these antibiotics. Some of these symptoms include: Shooting painBurning or tingling sensation Lack of coordination and muscle weaknessDigestive issues DizzinessLightheadedness

Changes in blood pressureVision problems Sweating or intolerance to heat In 2013, the FDA required drug makers to listperipheral neuropathy as a side effect. This came 12 years after the connection had alreadybeen made. Levaquin nerve damage can result in permanentdisability and rob a victim of their ability to work. A number of lawsuits have alreadybeen filed, all of which claim the companies failed to provide patients with adequate warningsabout their association with peripheral neuropathy. If you or someone you know has taken Avelox,Cipro or Levaquin and developed any burning,

tingling, numbness of the legs and or arms,or were diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, you may be entitled to compensation. Howevertime is limited to file a claim.

Achilles Tendon Ruptures and Antibiotics A Case Study New York Attorney Matthew McCauley

John is a gentleman who is in his late 80s.He's a World War II veteran. He is somebody who spent his life in sales and he retiredand entered into essentially the golden years of his life. He's an avid, avid golfer.You see this gentleman and all he wants to do is – he worked his entire life, he supportedhis family, wants to play golf, wants to help his grandchildren play golf, really wantsthe whole world to play golf. Well, John suffered an Achilles tendon rupture after taking amedication and came to us to see whether or not his rupture was related to the medicationhe was taking. We reviewed his case. There are antibiotics out there that are known tocause Achilles tendon ruptures and we were

able to review his case and advised him thatwe believed that his injury was related to the usage of a medication. In order to makethis decision, we take a look at the medical records. We take a look at his past medicalhistory. And we take a look at what he was doing when the injury occurred. And from whateverside we looked at, every single time it came back to the association of the usage of thisparticular medication every time. This is the type of case that we review every dayand that I do every day at Parker Waichman. With respect to the injuries, I'm also aparamedic. I'm able to look at the injuries from the perspective of what may have causedthe injury and whether or not there was something

outside of the medication or if there wassome type of event. I look at them from a personal level as if they are people thatI'm trying to look at and diagnose, as I did for many years as a paramedic. That helpsme to get through, to get through their cases and the determination of whether this a casethat should be filed or if there's something else involved in the case that may have causedtheir case. And some of the toughest calls that we have to make is when we tell people,you know, “We can't help you because your injury is not related to the medication thatyou are taking or the product that you are using.� And we spend just as much time explainingto people why their case isn't a case as

those people whose cases that we go on with.It can be frustrating for them because they're looking for answers. But when it comes tothe type of cases that we bring forward, we make sure that we're in a position thatwe think we can move a case forward rather than just file a case for no particular reason.If you have any questions, pick up the phone and call. I look forward to speaking withyou. Thank you very much for watching.
