Facts About Tequin
Tequin is an antibiotic drug manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS). It is used to eliminate bacteria that cause infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and sexually transmitted diseases such as uncomplicated gonorrhea. It also treats sinus, urinary tract, kidney, respiratory tract, and skin infections.
Tequin has been known to cause serious cases of low blood sugar, high blood sugar, and some fatalities. Several Tequin lawsuits have been administered against BMS for inadequate labeling of the prescription drug and the conditions caused as a result of its use.
Tequin lawsuits can be expertly handled by the attorneys at our Phoenix , Arizona based firm. We provide legal representation to ensure a clients rights are protected.
BMS recently announced its plans to halt production and sales of Tequin. In February of 2006, the Food and Drug Administration added side effect warnings to Tequin labeling to inform consumers about the serious blood sugar risks posed by the drug.
Tequin, prescribed to over a million people in 2005, has been linked to 388 cases of low and high blood sugar in the United States. According to the consumer interest group Public Citizen, 159 patients have required hospitalization and 20 people have died due to serious Tequin blood glucose abnormalities.
BMS has decided to stop production of Tequin, however, the drug will still be in circulation in hospitals and pharmacies around the U.S. Existing stock will not be pulled from the shelves, imposing additional risks to consumers.

I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.

Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way.
