Zantac Lawsuit – Understanding The Basics

Zantac is one of the leading heartburn medications sold in the USA. On September 13, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that the main active ingredient in Zantac and its generic equivalents is contaminated with a carcinogenic ingredient.

Ranitidine, the active and main ingredient in Zantac, has been shown to contain N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a cancer-causing chemical. After testing many samples of Zantac and its generic equivalents, the FDA found levels of NDMA in excess of 3,000 to 26,000 times above safe levels.

NDMA is a known carcinogenic and has been associated with many different types of cancer. The FDA did not immediately begin recalling medications containing Ranitidine when its report was first released, but it has since started recalling several products and CVS and Walgreens have both pulled all medications containing Ranitidine from their shelves.

If You Have Been Diagnosed With Cancer Are/Were An Active User Of Zantac

If you have been diagnosed with cancer and have been taking Zantac as a prescription or over-the-counter for an extended period of time, you may qualify to enter into a class-action lawsuit against the manufacturer. It is vital that you speak with a Zantac class-action attorney about your right to file a claim.

Your Zantac Case Attorney will ask you important information about your health, including the type of cancer you have been diagnosed with and how long you have been taking Zantac or its generic equivalent. It is advisable to bring as much information with you as possible to your initial consultation.

Types of Compensation Available

If you qualify to be a part of the Zantac class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to several forms of compensation. As a member of the suit, you may be entitled to:

* Cost of medical expense both current and future relating to the treatment of your injuries.

* Loss of income and future earning capacity if you cannot return to work after your treatment.

* Pain and suffering and mental anguish. This is very different for each person and will be based on the facts of your case.

* Loss of enjoyment of life as the result of the injuries you received from taking Zantac.

In some cases, the court may award punitive damages to the plaintiffs of a class-action lawsuit as a way to punish the company for their actions. If granted, the amount you receive will be based on the facts of your case.
