ZANTAC LAWSUIT LAWYER

Zantac Cancer Attorney

If you or your loved one has developed cancer or other health-related issues due to taking over-the-counter and prescription Zantac (ranitidine) products, you may be eligible for compensation. You’ll need a Zantac Lawsuit Lawyer on your side to give you legal advice and fight for justice. 

On September 13, 2019, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a statement on informing patients and healthcare providers of a new safety concern regarding the drug, ranitidine. This drug is also commonly purchased and sold under the brand name, Zantac. Tests have shown findings proving toxic levels of a carcinogenic (cancerous) ingredient known as NDMA in certain formulations of Zantac. In April 2020 the FDA began recalling all Zantac drugs and asked them to be pulled from the market immediately.

If you are ready to seek justice for a health problem caused by Zantac, a top Zantac lawsuit lawyer at Caputo & Mariotti can help you! Our team of expert attorneys will determine your eligibility and effectively represent your concerns in seeking compensation.

 

What Are Zantac Lawsuits?

If you took Zantac or ranitidine for an extended period of time but haven’t been diagnosed with cancer, you may still be eligible for compensation by filing a Zantac class action lawsuit to recover the money you spent on the medication. Also, if you have taken Zantac and experienced health issues other than cancer, you can still file a Zantac personal injury claim. The first step is working with top Zantac lawsuit lawyers at Caputo & Mariotti. Our team is experienced in these claims to ensure you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Am I Eligible for Compensation in a Zantac Lawsuit?

Discovering who was informed of the drug’s effects, who had overlooked critical information, and who was actually unaware of the drug’s later effects can be difficult to determine. This is why hiring an experienced and qualified personal injury attorney to help file your Zantac lawsuit is essential in the success of your claim.

Compensation in a Zantac personal injury claim can depend on several different things, such as the type and severity of cancer caused by taking Zantac.

Other factors can affect how much compensation may be awarded in a personal injury claim. These include but are not limited to:

  • Effects on a person’s immediate and long-term health
  • Effects of the injury  on a person’s quality of life (i.e. cancer)
  • If the injury affects people close to the individual
  • How the injury affects a person’s finances
  • How the injury will affect a person’s life overall: finances, health, & quality of life
