Find out if you have a good case
Zantac has been found to contain low levels of a carcinogenic called NDMA. As a result, a massive Zantac recall was issued, and Zantac was removed from store and pharmacy shelves across the United States. However, many people used Zantac before the recall and before the presence of NDMA in Zantac was identified. Many of these individuals used Zantac for heartburn and related conditions had taken Zantac regularly for many years, even decades in some cases.
Unfortunately, many of these patients developed different forms of cancer as the result of their prolonged use of Zantac. If you or a loved one is in a similar situation, you may have grounds for a product liability case against Zantac’s manufacturer for their negligence and failure to warn users of the inherent dangers of using Zantac.

How do dangerous drugs find their way to the market?
Unfortunately, although new drugs undergo thorough testing before they are approved for sale, not every contingency or use case can be identified. Zantac reduces the amount of acid produced by the stomach and if not for NDMA contamination is an otherwise effective drug for treating heartburn and preventing ulcers from developing in the stomach and intestines.
However, only after long-term availability to the public (for roughly 30 years) was it discovered that Zantac – more specifically, the NDMA found in Zantac – likely caused various forms of cancer as well as different types of disability and permanent injury.
If you suffered these types of illnesses or damages as a result of the prolonged use of Zantac, you may be able to seek compensation for the following:
Other illnesses that can potentially be grounds for a Zantac lawsuit include:
Many of these illnesses can be identified by the telltale signs and symptoms below:
If you have any of these symptoms, seek medical help immediately. If you have used Zantac in the past, speak with an attorney as well. You may have more serious illnesses than what is apparent, and you should investigate whether your Zantac use is connected to your illnesses. If it is, you may have grounds for a compensation claim.

Large pharmaceuticals have virtually limitless resources when it comes to fighting the lawsuits they face for causing innocent patients harm.
It is unfair for you to have to suffer because of the negligence or mistakes of large drug manufacturers. However, at the same time, it is never easy bringing these large, resource-rich corporations to justice.
An attorney can help you navigate the complexities of personal injury and product liability law. We will help you gather the evidence needed to build a case and we will help you quantify your losses so that you have a definite figure in mind when seeking compensation.
If you have Zantac purchase receipts, keep them. We will obtain your medical treatment records and proof of any other losses such as lost income and, together with proof of your prolonged use of Zantac, try to demonstrate that you developed illnesses or sustained other health issues linked to your Zantac use.
Once this has been established, we can move forward with seeking compensation because the manufacturer knew, should have known, or knew and still did not inform users of the inherent dangers of using Zantac. This is a form of negligence, and the manufacturer can be held liable for the resultant losses and damages suffered by victims.
We understand the life-changing shock of a cancer diagnosis, and we understand how traumatizing it can be to have your life thrown off track by a drug you were taking to live more comfortably. Remember that you are not alone, and we are here to assist you every step of the way.
