Possible dangerous side effects of prescription medication Avelox

Avelox is an antibiotic used to treat severe infections. In fact, residents of Washington, D.C., may have taken the prescription medication for any of a variety of illnesses, from pneumonia to sinusitis. However, patients may want to think twice before deciding whether the benefits of taking the drug outweigh the apparent risks.

In another state, a woman is suing the drug company responsible for Avelox. She recently filed a complaint, naming as defendants Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., Bayer Corporation, Bayer AG, Bayer Pharma AG, and Merck & Co. Inc. The woman alleges that their drug, Avelox, caused her to experience negative side effects of which she was unaware she would be at risk.

The complaint states that the defendants failed to inform consumers of the potential negative effects of taking the drug. Injuries experienced by the woman included loss of balance and weakness. The lawsuit alleges fraud, liability, breach of warranty, negligence and negligent misrepresentation.

For these issues, the woman's suit is requesting a trial by jury. She is seeking damages to help cover numerous expenses including court costs, medical expenditures and more, as the court sees fit. This is not the only case of alleged injury from the drug Avelox; there are several pending lawsuits around the country making similar allegations of injury after taking the drug by patients who state they were never informed of the risks and potential negative and dangerous side effects. Any Washington, D.C., residents who have suffered injury from this or any other prescription medication might benefit from seeking the counsel of an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can advise on legal grounds for pursuing compensation.
