Zantac (or, ranitidine, as a generic) was supposed to be a brand of harmless antihistamines and antacids. Those who used Zantac drugs routinely didn’t know they contained toxic levels of a potentially carcinogenic chemical.
If you or a loved one has developed cancer that may be linked to Zantac usage in South Florida, contact a South Florida Zantac attorney soon. You may be entitled to compensation. Our South Florida mass tort lawyers at LJ Law Group can help you secure it.
South Florida Zantac Cases: What You Need to Know
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has spent several years studying the way in which the presence of the chemical N-Nitrosodimethylamine could cause cancer resulting from Zantac usage. As recently as April, 2020, the FDA chose to finally request that all manufacturers remove both prescription and over-the-counter ranitidine and Zantac medications from the market.
Unfortunately, while future consumers may now be less at risk of developing cancer linked to Zantac usage, some have already used the drug when it was more available. If you’re one of them, or if you lost a loved one to cancer, you may have a South Florida Zantac case. The following are some of the losses for which you may be compensated:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of a financial provider in your family
Our experienced South Florida Zantac lawyers will help you pursue that compensation in various ways. Because the defendants in South Florida Zantac lawsuits tend to be large companies (such as Sanofi, Pfizer, and Chattem, Inc.) with the resources to defend themselves aggressively, you need representation from experts dedicated to helping you collect what you’re owed.
We’ll start by reviewing your case to determine if there’s a clear enough link between usage of Zantac products and the cancer you or your loved one later developed. If so, we’ll help you collect the evidence necessary to prove that link. Our mass tort law firm in South Florida has the tools and budget needed to conduct such a thorough investigation.
We’ll also consider whether other parties may be responsible for compensating you. For example, while the manufacturers of Zantac products tend to be the liable parties in these cases, in some instances, others may share some liability. An example of such an instance would be a doctor knowing of the risks associated with Zantac but prescribing it anyway without telling the patient of those risks.
