LOUISVILLE, KY, March 25, 2016— Tad Thomas of Thomas Law Offices has been appointed to the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee in the federal fluoroquinolone (commonly known as Levaquin) product liability multidistrict litigation (MDL) which was initiated last year. The Plaintiff’s Steering Committee (PSC) is a committee of ten attorneys throughout the United States that will assist the entire plaintiff’s multidistrict litigation group in coordinating proceedings between the plaintiffs and attorneys, preparing the plaintiffs for trial, and serving as a possible litigator during trial.

MDL cases like the federal Levaquin MDL are complicated, comprised of hundreds of individual filings and plaintiffs. In such cases, leadership committees are organized to coordinate efforts between the leading attorneys and plaintiffs, making it easier for litigators to ensure everyone is on the same page and maximize the chances of a successful trial. In the case of the federal Levaquin MDL, over 400 cases of victims suffering from peripheral neuropathy caused by the medication’s side effects are involved. The committee’s members were appointed by the United States District Court of Minnesota where the trial proceedings will take place.

Tad Thomas and his firm has had years of success winning product liability cases for plaintiffs in Louisville, KY. Mr. Thomas was recently recognized by his peers as one of Louisville’s top product liability attorneys in the plaintiff category. Product liability and defective drug cases are two of the practice areas Thomas Law Offices chooses to focus most on. The firm works hard to protect victims and their family members, doing good after tragedy strikes.

Proud to serve on the Levaquin MDL Plaintiff’s Steering Committee, Mr. Thomas aims to continue reaching out to anyone who has experienced harmful side effects after being prescribed the drug as well as continue educating Americans regarding the dangerous and potentially life-threatening side effects of Levaquin. His firm is currently accepting new Levaquin clients or anyone experiencing adverse side effects from dangerous drugs or defective products.
