Recent Cipro Litigation

The recently discovered link between Cipro and various serious side effects has given rise to numerous personal injury lawsuits. These lawsuits, which are filed by lawyers on behalf of injured Cipro patients, seek compensation for the Cipro patients’ injuries.

For example, in 2003, lawyers assisted a group of four U.S. postal workers in filing a lawsuit against Bayer, Cipro’s manufacturer. In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs’ lawyers allege that the plaintiffs were given Cipro during the anthrax scare in 2001 and suffered serious side effects shortly thereafter. Additionally, the lawyers contend that Bayer failed to publicly disclose data indicating that the drug could cause nerve and tendon injuries, among other things. In an interview, one of the plaintiffs’ lawyers stated that, “It’s unfortunate enough the workers went through the anthrax attacks, but the fact that they got a hit from Cipro, which was supposed to protect them, is disgraceful.”

Because the FDA recently issued a health alert concerning the side effects associated with Cipro, lawyers except awareness about the connection between Cipro and serious side effects to dramatically grow. Accordingly, lawyers expect the number of Cipro lawsuits to rise. Both people directly affected by Cipro and relatives of people who have died after taking Cipro may be eligible to file a lawsuit and should contact our experienced lawyers immediately.
