Valsartan Lawsuit Lawyers

Over a Million Americans Could Be at Risk of Cancer From Tainted Valsartan Doses. Now, The Victims Demand Justice.

Patients who took blood pressure medications containing valsartan as early as 2014 and were later diagnosed with cancer or liver damage are suing the companies that made and sold the tainted drugs.

According to the lawsuits, valsartan batches were allegedly contaminated with toxic, carcinogenic chemicals N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-Nitrosodiethylamide (NDEA). If you took blood pressure medication containing valsartan and were later diagnosed with cancer, consult with the dangerous drug attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson immediately for your best chance at maximum compensation by calling 800-533-6845 or submitting a free consultation form online.

Why Are Valsartan Lawsuits Being Filed?

In 2014, some batches of valsartan were contaminated with NDMA and NDEA, both toxic chemicals that could potentially cause multiple types of cancer, as well as tumors and liver damage. Then, in 2018, the FDA issued a voluntary recall of several valsartan drugs and combination drugs in the U.S.

Lawsuits claiming consumer losses and personal injuries have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation in a New Jersey federal court. These lawsuits have named 20 Valsartan manufacturers as defendants.

Valsartan’s History of Recalls

In July 2018, the FDA issued a voluntary recall of over half of the U.S.’s supply of valsartan due to contamination with NDMA, a toxic and potentially cancer-causing chemical. It was estimated that these tainted drugs first entered the U.S. market as early as 2014.

In addition to the valsartan-containing drugs, the FDA recall also includes certain losartan and irbesartan products.

How to File a Valsartan Lawsuit

If you suspect that you took a contaminated valsartan-containing medication and are now suffering from any injuries or health complications mentioned, you must act quickly to secure the compensation you may deserve under the law.

First, locate the name of the drug’s manufacturer and lot number on the prescription bottle label or in the warning insert. You can request this information from your pharmacist. The FDA uses a National Drug Code to track products, including valsartan-containing products. Your pharmacist should be able to check these codes for you.

After you have this information and confirm that your injuries or illness are from a contaminated valsartan product, talk to your doctor about your treatment options and consult with an experienced valsartan lawsuit attorney right away.
