Cipro Injury Lawsuits
Investigating antibiotic injury cases nationwide
Recent studies, published by the American Medical Association and prominent medical journals, are concerned that the use of fluoroquinolone antibiotics, like Cipro, may be linked with a substantial risk for aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections.
Such health events can lead to fatal aortic ruptures. The available research warns that the use of antibiotics like Cipro (ciprofloxacin) could be associated with an increased risk after immediate treatment, or years after.
Aortic dissection is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the lining of the aorta—the main artery in the body—is broken down, allowing blood to seep into outside layers of tissue, quickly causing debilitating complications that often lead to death. When the aorta wall ruptures, patients have roughly a 50 percent chance of survival.
Medical scientists compiled data that shows the incidence of aortic dissection and aortic aneurysm in America has risen over the last 30 years, a primary cause of death each year for thousands of unknowing patients. The 2015 studies, published in the Pharmaceutical Journal, identify a logical “association” between fluoroquinolone (Cipro) use and the development of severe aortic disorders.

What Does a Pharmaceutical Injury Attorney Do for Your Case?
A pharmaceutical injury attorney plays a crucial role in helping individuals who have suffered harm or adverse effects due to the use of medications, such as Cipro. Here’s what a pharmaceutical injury attorney can do for your case:
Investigation: Attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to gather evidence that establishes the liability of the pharmaceutical company. This may involve consulting with medical experts and reviewing scientific literature and studies related to the medication.
Negotiation: Your attorney will engage in negotiations with the defendant’s legal team or insurance company to seek a fair settlement on your behalf. They will work to maximize your compensation and ensure your rights are protected.
Litigation: If a settlement cannot be reached through negotiations, your attorney will represent you in court. They will present your case, including evidence, witnesses, and legal arguments, to a judge and/or jury.
In sum, a pharmaceutical injury attorney is your legal advocate who will use their expertise to navigate the complexities of pharmaceutical injury cases and help you seek justice and compensation for the harm you’ve suffered due to a medication like Cipro.

Questions about Cipro Litigation
Individuals who have experienced severe side effects or injuries as a result of taking Cipro may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company responsible for manufacturing and distributing the drug.
Common injuries include tendon ruptures (such as Achilles tendon ruptures), peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage), joint and muscle pain, and other serious side effects.
In some cases, Cipro lawsuits may be part of a multidistrict litigation (MDL) or class-action lawsuit, but individual lawsuits are more common. An attorney can advise you on the most appropriate legal action for your situation.
