Local Representation For Zantac Cancer Claims
People throughout Mississippi and across the nation have turned to Zantac as a treatment for chronic stomach ailments, seeking relief from a prescription drug they assumed was safe. After all, unsafe drugs can’t possibly make it by the FDA to consumers, can they?
Sadly, they can. Zantac – the brand name for the generic ranitidine – has been shown to contain a carcinogenic compound linked to cancer. Patients with acid-reflux disease and other conditions were prescribed this drug and placed at risk for developing a deadly disease.
At Hearn Law Firm, PLLC, we believe that companies should be held accountable for knowingly putting the users of Zantac at risk for developing cancer. Our lead attorney, Philip C. Hearn, brings decades of personal injury experience to our practice. You can rely on him to fight for the full compensation you deserve for your medical costs, pain and suffering, lost earnings, and other damages.
Zantac And Cancer
Zantac is an over-the-counter medication that has been used to treat issues including acid reflux disease, stomach ulcers, reflux esophagitis, and post-operative peptic ulcers. One of the compounds in the drug – N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) – has been linked to cancer. After initially dragging its feet, the FDA finally issued a warning in the spring of 2020. This was long after the cancerous link was discovered and pharmacies such as Walgreen’s, CVS and Walmart voluntarily stopped carrying Zantac.
If you or a loved one has developed cancer after taking Zantac, our experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine whether you have a viable personal injury claim. It will cost you nothing to find out more about your options.
