Levaquin (levofloxacin) is an antibiotic used to treat prostatis and bacterial infections of the upper respiratory and urinary tracts. The drug has been associated with an increased risk of tendon rupture, particularly involving the Achilles tendon in the heel, but also involving ruptured tendons in the shoulder, elbow, knee and hand. Levaquin is a popular antibiotic that can apparently cause injuries to the aorta, particularly aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection.
A growing number of Levaquin tendon rupture lawsuits have been filed against the drug’s maker Johnson & Johnson, and their subsidiary Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals. As tendon rupture lawsuits are filed in federal court, the cases are transferred to the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, where Judge John R. Tunheim is overseeing the consolidated pretrial litigation.
