Levaquin, Avelox Lawyers for Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Dissection Cases
For years, the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. have been reviewing potential Levaquin lawsuits, Cipro lawsuits and Avelox lawsuits over dangerous side effects associated with these widely used antibiotics. Our law firm is now also evaluating potential claims for individuals who suffered an aortic aneurysm or aortic dissection.
These fluoroquinolone-based antibiotics are known to cause collagen degradation, which has resulted in problems with tendon ruptures and retinal detachment. The drugs have also been linked to a risk of peripheral neuropathy.
Recent studies suggest that side effects of Levaquin, Avelox and Cipro may also cause more serious collagen degradation disorders involving the aorta. As a result, our lawyers are now pursuing financial compensation for individuals nationwide through an:

Antibiotic Aortic Aneurysm and Aortic Dissection Injuries
An aortic aneurysm injury occurs when the exterior wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, weakens at one point and bulges due to pressure from within the aorta. While smaller aneurysms are not a serious risk, it is important that they are closely monitored and treated, as a larger aneurysm may rupture, causing massive internal bleeding and potentially death.
Did You or a Loved One Suffer an Aortic Aneurysm or Aortic Dissection from Levaquin, Avelox or Cipro?
The risk of rupture is even greater with an aortic dissection injury, which occur when tears form in the interior layers of the aorta, and which can also cause aortic aneurysms to develop as well.
Symptoms of an aortic aneurysm or aortic dissection from Levaquin, Avelox or another fluoroquinolone antibiotic may include:
- Severe Chest Pain
- Severe Back Pain
- Shortness of Breath
- Coughing and Trouble Speaking
- Partial Paralysis On One Side Of The Body
- Differing Pulses In the Arms
Since the manufacturers knew that side effects of the antibiotics cause problems with the degradation of tissue inside the body, cases being pursued by our aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection lawyers allege that they knew or should have known about the risk of these severe injuries as well. If adequate warnings had been provided many individuals may have been able to avoid painful injuries and wrongful death.
