Find Out if You Can Bring a Zantac Lawsuit or Join a Ranitidine Class Action Lawsuit
In April 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned that the popular heartburn medication, Zantac (ranitidine), should not be taken because of high levels of NDMA (N Nitrosodimethylamine NDMA) in Zantac medication. Ranitidine tablets are primarily taken for acid reflux, GERD, heartburn and other problems.
Now, people who bought it off retail shelves are concerned it could could cause cancer (including a cancer diagnosis of stomach cancer, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, brain cancer, or other side effects) due to high NDMA levels in the over the counter Zantac and its generic ranitidine alternative.
If you or a loved one took ranitidine tablets and are worried that it could cause cancer because of the NDMA in Zantac, remember that you could bring a case for the types of cancers it gave you. Prescription drug companies are responsible if their customers developed cancer after taking their medication because they failed to warn about that possible harm or related side effects related to N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in the Zantac heartburn medication.

What You Can Obtain in a Zantac Lawsuit
When we sit down with people, the first thing they ask us is how much they can get in a case. This is a complicated answer that cannot be boiled down to case headlines or legal trends. To figure out what award or settlement may be possible for you, you need to work with your lawyers and analyze how exactly you were harmed or damaged from the events.
Normally, this can mean a few things. We try and group economic losses like medical bills, prescription costs, and other out of pocket items. We also try and list non economic harm like pain, suffering, lost quality of life, or shortened life.
However, the makeup of your Zantac injuries and circumstances could be completely unique. It is extremely important to look narrowly and your facts to estimate the potential case value.
