Can I File a Zantac Lawsuit?

Can I File a Zantac Lawsuit?- If you used Zantac or a generic ranitidine medicine to treat heartburn and later developed cancer or other health problems, you may be able to file a Zantac lawsuit.

zantac lawyer can i get if i file a zantac lawsuit

You may be eligible to sue Zantac if you:

  1. You got cancer after taking Zantac or a drug containing the active component ranitidine.
  2. Your loved one acquired cancer after taking Zantac or a prescription containing ranitidine as an active ingredient.
  3. You may have suffered losses as a result of taking Zantac or generic ranitidine.

You would not be the first individual to sue the makers of Zantac or generic ranitidine due to the products’ ties to cancer. You may be eligible to join multidistrict litigation (MDL) or file an individual action, and a lawyer can help you with either option.

Understand the Current Zantac and Ranitidine Litigation

If you or a loved one acquired cancer after taking Zantac or another kind of ranitidine, you may be able to join a lawsuit, file a case, or join an MDL.

MDL 2924 is one of the current class action cases proceeding against manufacturers that failed to detect or disclose the hazards of ranitidine in Zantac and other medications. Lawyers who presumably wrote the lawsuit claim:

  • N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a chemical classified as a “probable human carcinogen” by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), becomes dangerously prevalent in the human body when ranitidine in Zantac degrades.
  • NDMA is used to purposefully cause tumours in laboratory animals for research purposes, and it may cause tumours in humans who use ranitidine.
  • Taking Zantac or generic ranitidine may lead to kidney cancer, bladder cancer, pancreatic cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, intestinal cancer, or liver cancer.

If you choose to hire an attorney, your lawyer may make identical arguments in any case you join or file on your own. If you decide to retain the services of a lawyer, you can expect your lawyer to:

  • Obtain medical documents demonstrating the nature and extent of your cancer or the cancer of a loved one.
  • Obtain any documentation proving that you were prescribed Zantac or ranitidine, or that you purchased over-the-counter ranitidine, Zantac, or a product containing ranitidine.
  • File your lawsuit in the proper legal venue, or assist you in joining an existing MDL.
  • Organise the evidence in your case into a compensation claim.
  • Consult with any experts whose testimony can help your case.
  • Protect your rights.

It appears that there was a huge failure that exposed countless people, possibly including you or a loved one, to a considerable cancer risk due to ranitidine in Zantac. You may be eligible for compensation as a result of this exposure.

Drug companies and others may be held liable for your cancer.

Zantac was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1983, however the dangers of ranitidine in Zantac were not made public until 2019, according to Reuters.

Those who may have neglected to safeguard the public from unacceptable ranitidine risk in cancer include:

  • The FDA, which not only approved Zantac and generic ranitidine for consumer sale but also failed to conduct any follow-up testing that revealed ranitidine instability 
  • GlaxoSmithKline PLC (formerly Glaxo Holdings Ltd), the first drug manufacturer to bring Zantac to market
  • Johnson & Johnson, Sanofi, Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, and other medicine manufacturers who produced brand-name Zantac or equivalent ranitidine-containing pharmaceuticals between 1983 and 2019.

A withdrawal request from the FDA filed in April 2020 has caused manufacturers to gradually withdraw ranitidine-containing medications from the market, including Zantac (per Sanofi). Nonetheless, as online pharmacy Valisure uncovered in 2019, these firms failed to detect or share data that ranitidine may be intrinsically harmful due to its chemical instability.

One or more of these parties may be identified as a defendant in any subsequent case. If your lawsuit is successful, they may be held accountable for any losses you have suffered as a result of their negligence.

You Could Get Paid in a Zantac-Ranitidine Lawsuit

If you win a Zantac or ranitidine lawsuit, you may be able to obtain compensation for:

  • You have experienced pain and suffering as a result of your cancer.
  • Income you have lost as a result of your disease.
  • Medical costs associated with cancer diagnosis and monitoring.
  • Medical expenses for cancer treatment.
  • The cost of cancer treatment and rehabilitation for the effects of your cancer.
  • If a loved one dies, expenses incurred as a result of their death.

If you file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, you may be able to recover your losses if your legal action is successful.
