Zantac Lawsuit Attorneys

The common heartburn medication Zantac was recalled from shelves in September and October 2019 due to the presence of a carcinogenic substance in the drug. While the drug manufacturers continue to defend their drug, stating that the levels of cancer-causing substance N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) are lower than are present in many foods, people have already come forward with stomach and bladder cancer, claiming it to be a result of the pills.

Drug stores began pulling Zantac off their shelves after tests by the FDA and drug company Valisure found NDMA levels higher than should be present in the drug. This isn’t the first time NDMA has been found in medications: 2018 saw the recall of valsartan and losartan, as well as other blood pressure medications.

Getting maximum compensation for those who developed cancer as a result of Zantac

The attorneys of Berman & Simmons are strong allies of the people of Maine who are, or have been receiving, treatment for cancer after taking Zantac. Due to the drug’s delivery process, cancer could develop anywhere within the body’s digestive or excretory system, but is largely located in the stomach and bladder.

A cancer diagnosis and treatment process is life altering and overwhelming. The lawyers of Berman & Simmons know this and work with those suffering to get them the compensation they deserve. We have worked with people injured by a wide array of dangerous drugs and have the knowledge and experience to hold manufacturers accountable. The manufacturers of Zantac should have been aware of what is in their product, and if they were, they should have warned consumers of the dangers. Their failures have resulted in real lives being ruined.
