Drug Injury Attorney in Conyers

Zantac (ranitidine) is a commonly used and prescribed heartburn medication. Alarmingly, very serious questions have been raised about the safety of the drug. In 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced its preliminary findings that many Zantac products may be contaminated with a cancer-causing carcinogen. More recently, the federal regulators have requested that manufacturers remove all Zantac products from the market. 

At MG Law, our Georgia pharmaceutical lawyers have the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to represent people in Zantac lawsuits. We are committed to holding drug manufacturers and their insurance companies accountable. If you or your family member developed cancer after using Zantac, we are here to help. To set up a free, no obligation initial consultation with an experienced Atlanta Zantac attorney, please call us today.

An Overview of Zantac Lawsuits—Know the Risks and Your Legal Options

On April 1st, 2020, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officially advised consumers, patients, and health care professionals to beware of the risks of prescription and over-the-counter Zantac (ranitidine). In addition, the FDA requested that all American drug manufacturers withdraw their Zantac products from the market. Depending on several different factors—including when and where they were manufactured and how they were stored—Zantac batches may contain harmful impurities. 

The announcement came after a new round of studies found more evidence that many Zantac products are contaminated with N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA)—a likely human carcinogen. The World Health Organization (WHO) considers NDMA to be a cancer-causing substance. While not every sample of the drug was contaminated, the impurities were consistent and persistent enough to demonstrate a significant risk to public health and safety. NDMA exposure has been linked to several life-threatening medical conditions, including: 

  • Stomach cancer;
  • Bladder cancer;
  • Small intestine cancer;
  • Other types of cancers;
  • Tumors of the kidneys and lungs; and
  • Fibrosis of the liver. 

If you or someone you know developed cancer or any other type of severe medical complications after taking prescription Zantac or over-the-counter Zantac, is it imperative that you consult with a qualified lawyer. You may have legal options available and a drug company may bear legal liability for the harm. 

Compensation Available Through Zantac Lawsuits

As dangerous and defective drugs impact many different people, these cases are often handled through mass tort claims or a class action lawsuit. Through a Zantac lawsuit, cancer patients and other affected people may be entitled to financial compensation for their damages. Unfortunately, large pharmaceutical companies are aggressive in defending defective drug claims. They fight to limit their own liability. At MG Law, our Georgia mass tort lawyers can help you seek money for the full extent of your damages. Financial relief may be available for: 

  • Medical bills;
  • Rehabilitative care;
  • Psychological counseling;   
  • Lost wages;
  • Diminished earning potential;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Permanent scarring; 
  • Disability or physical impairment; and
  • Wrongful death damages.
