Potential class action regarding serious side effects of Ciprofloxacin (Cipro)

and other fluoroquinolone antibiotics.

Law Partners Personal Injury Lawyers is currently investigating a potential class action in relation to the serious side effects caused by fluoroquinolone antibiotics. 

This potential class action is on behalf of Australians who have taken fluoroquinolone antibiotics prior to 2020 and suffered a serious long term adverse reaction. 

Fluoroquinolones are strong prescription antibiotics used to treat bacterial infections including respiratory and urinary tract infections. The three fluoroquinolone antibiotics marketed in Australia are Ciprofloxacin (‘Cipro’), Moxifloxacin and Norfloxacin.

What adverse reactions are caused by fluoroquinolones? 

Disabling, long-lasting and potentially irreversible adverse reactions affecting the musculoskeletal and nervous systems have been reported with these antibiotics. They include: 

  • Peripheral nerve damage    
  • Central nervous system effects    
  • Anaphylaxis or severe allergic reaction    
  • Tendon rupture or damage    
  • Aortic aneurysm or dissection 

Class action FAQs

If you’ve had severe complications after taking fluoroquinolone antibiotics prior to 2020, you may qualify. You can find out by filling out the form on this page or calling 13 15 15.   

If you’ve had temporary, short-term symptoms, but these symptoms didn’t last, then you’re unlikely to qualify. 

At this stage we’re investigating this as a potential class action. If it proceeds, it’s likely to commence in the second half of 2023. 

If you’ve had to stop work because of your symptoms, we may be able to help you claim a total and permanent disability lump sum. You can call us on 13 15 15 to find out if you qualify.
