Fluoroquinolone medications were discovered in the 1960s and were originally prescribed for the treatment of urinary tract infections. Certain fluoroquinolone drugs, such as Levaquin, are some of the most frequently used antibiotics throughout the country and the world. Nevertheless, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety warning that fluoroquinolone use can cause aortic aneurysms in some patients. These ruptures or tears in the aorta, the main artery of the body, can result in dangerous bleeding and even death. Patients at a heightened risk for aortic aneurysms include those with a history of aorta blockages, blood vessel blockages, certain genetic conditions concerning blood vessel changes, high blood pressure, and the elderly.

Countless victims have already suffered horrifying health complications as a result of taking Levaquin, and other fluoroquinolone drugs. Some of these victims have already initiated claims to hold fluoroquinolone manufacturers, such as Bayer, Johnson & Johnson, and Merus Labs, liable for their reckless disregard of consumers’ health and safety in pursuit of higher profit margins. These lawsuits allege that manufacturers were aware of the potential dangers yet failed to give reasonable warnings to doctors and patients taking these drugs. If you, or a loved one, have suffered aortic complications after taking a fluoroquinolone drug, although no amount of money can erase your pain and suffering, you may have the right to file a lawsuit.

Commonly Prescribed Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics

According to the FDA’s warning, when prescribed a fluoroquinolone drug, patients double their chances of suffering an aortic aneurysm or dissection. The agency believes that the risks outweigh the benefits, especially for patients who are known to be at risk of aortic aneurysms or have already suffered one. As such, the FDA strongly advises vulnerable groups to consider alternative treatments. There are over 60 generic versions of fluoroquinolone on the market. Some of the most common FDA-approved fluoroquinolone brands include:

  1. Levaquin (levofloxacin) manufactured by Johnson & Johnson;
  2. Factive (gemifloxacin); manufactured by Merus Labs;
  3. Baxdeka (delafloxacin) manufactured by Melinta Therapeutics, Inc.;
  4. Noroxin (norfloxacin) manufactured by Merck & Co;
  5. Raxar (grepafloxacin) manufactured by Glaxo Wellcome;
  6. Avelox (moxifloxacin) manufactured by Bayer; and
  7. Floxin (ofloxacin) manufactured by Daiichi Sankyo.

Numerous patients who have suffered from dissections, aortic aneurysms, ruptured tendons, or other severe injuries after taking the above fluoroquinolone medications are now pursuing product liability lawsuits against the manufacturers. Additionally, there are other known risks, such as mental health side effects, nerve damage, the formation of blood clots, and serious blood sugar disturbances, associated with the use of fluoroquinolones that must be cautiously evaluated when considering this powerful antibiotic.



Calculating Damages In Your Fluoroquinolone Lawsuit

The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. recognizes that victims unfortunate enough to suffer from aortic aneurysms caused by taking Levaquin or another fluoroquinolone drug may be in a fight for their lives. Our highly experienced product liability attorneys firmly believe that no drug approved by the FDA should result in ruptures of the main artery or death. Victims may be entitled to seek monetary compensation for damages through a product liability claim, which may include the following compensation:

  1. All past, present, and future medical expenses resulting from your aortic aneurysm and other related health complications;
  2. All lost wages from missed work;
  3. Diminished future earning capacity;
  4. Pain and suffering caused by your aortic complication, as well as treatment and recovery;
  5. Permanent disabilities suffered;
  6. Loss of consortium;
  7. Loss of enjoyment in life; and

Levaquin Wrongful Death Lawsuits

In a single recent year, aortic aneurysms resulted in nearly 10,000 fatalities. The loss of a loved one because of an aortic aneurysm or dissection can put family members in an extremely tough situation both emotionally and money-wise. For those who lost a family member due to aortic complications caused by taking fluoroquinolones, although nothing can eliminate your loved one’s pain or the misery caused by their untimely loss, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible manufacturer. Wrongful death claims are intended to provide surviving family members with monetary compensation and peace of mind after their startling loss. Determining damages in a wrongful death lawsuit can be a very complicated undertaking that typically requires the assistance of a forensic economist and other expert witnesses. The victim’s loved ones may be able to recover compensation for past and future losses, including:

Mother Crying
  1. All medical expenses incurred because of the victim’s aortic treatment;
  2. Lost wages and additional work-related benefits, which includes future earnings or benefits if the victim had lived;
  3. The victim’s pain and suffering caused by their health complications;
  4. Loss of parental guidance and care for surviving children;
  5. The value of the companionship and comfort that the victim provided;
  6. All funeral and other related burial costs;
  7. Loss of inheritance; and
  8. Punitive damages, if it can be demonstrated that the pharmaceutical manufacturer acted grossly negligent or reckless.

Your lawsuit will force negligent fluoroquinolone manufacturers to accept responsibility for their overall indifference to human life and resulting damages. It often takes expensive litigation to encourage drug companies to be more concerned with consumers’ health. Most importantly, filing a wrongful death claim can provide a sense of justice for the victim’s entire family.
