Note: Thomas Law Offices is no longer accepting these cases.
Despite the fact that there are serious side effects associated with taking Levaquin, Johnson & Johnson and Ortho-McNeil—the manufacturers of Levaquin—chose not to disclose many of the drug’s most serious side effects until forced to do so years later by the FDA. Due to the fact that these side effects weren’t noted on the drug label until this point, many patients suffered from Levaquin side effects without being aware they existed.
At Thomas Law Offices, we believe that Johnson & Johnson and Ortho-McNeil wronged their patients by not disclosing this information quickly enough—especially considering how many alternatives to Levaquin are on the market. Thousands of unaware patients were placed at unneeded risk.

Why is Levaquin still commonly prescribed with these dangerous side effects?
Levaquin became popular before all of its risky side effects were placed on the labels of the drug. The manufacturers pushed Levaquin early on and utilized marketing strategies that depicted the drug as safer than it really was. All of the risks relating to Levaquin are now public knowledge but many doctors still commonly prescribe the drug due to its broad-spectrum nature and out of habit.
