Law Partners’ Fluoroquinolone Class Action Gains Momentum.
Law Partners’ class action investigation into the prescription and impacts of Fluoroquinolone antibiotics has gained momentum. This week we discussed the class action with the media, addressing who might be eligible, how they can get help, and where to find more information about joining.
We believe that hundreds of people have suffered severe side effects caused by these antibiotics. The lawsuit represents Australians who were prescribed common Fluoroquinolone antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin (Cipro), Norfloxacin, and Moxifloxacin, which can cause ongoing health complications including nerve damage, tendon rupture, and aortic aneurysm.
The class action will be against the manufacturers of Fluoroquinolones, who failed to provide warnings about the risks and long-term effects associated with taking these drugs.

Our client, Rebecca, was prescribed Cipro antibiotics after being diagnosed with an ear infection in 2013. She was then hospitalised with burning pain in her legs and weak tendons. The impact of the medication meant that she struggled to walk for six months, and as a single mother of three, life became extremely difficult.
Rebecca has battled ongoing health problems for the past decade, including weakness in her muscles and tendons, spinal problems, headaches, and balance issues. She gets fatigued easily, struggles to walk or stand up for long periods of time, and was recently diagnosed with neuropathy and a ruptured tendon in her elbow.
Finding Law Partners has allowed Rebecca to pursue compensation for her injuries and receive support with the financial impact of the antibiotics. She wants to make sure that nobody else has to experience what she’s been through.
Law Partners associate Tasahra Christian is leading the class action. She encourages anyone who may have experienced an adverse reaction to fluoroquinolone antibiotics to get in touch with Law Partners to see if they’re eligible to join the potential class action.
