Zantac Lawsuit Lawyers

If You Took Zantac and Were Later Diagnosed with Cancer, You Need an Attorney With Experience. Contact Grimes Teich Anderson Today.

Lawsuits claim that Zantac and other ranitidine products contaminated with N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) have caused patients to suffer various types of cancer. Those filing lawsuits against Zantac and ranitidine manufacturers are seeking compensation for illnesses potentially caused by NDMA exposure.

If you developed bladder, stomach, esophageal, liver, pancreatic, or another type of cancer cancer due to NDMA exposure from taking Zantac, contact the experienced dangerous drug attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson by calling 800-533-6845 or submitting a free consultation form online. We've been representing victims for over 40 years and are ready to help you too.

The History of Zantac Lawsuits

In 2019, manufacturers began issuing voluntary recalls of Zantac (ranitidine) drugs that were contaminated with NDMA, a probable human carcinogen. Manufacturers of these products included:

  • American Health Packaging
  • Amneal Pharmaceuticals LLC
  • Apotex
  • Appco Pharma LLC
  • Aurobindo Pharma USA
  • Denton Pharma dba Northwind Pharmaceuticals
  • Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd.
  • Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Inc.
  • Golden State Medical Supply Inc.
  • Lannett Company Inc.
  • Novitium Pharma LLC
  • Perrigo Company PLC
  • Precision Dose Inc.
  • Sanofi
  • Sandoz

Following this, the FDA requested the removal of all ranitidine products from the market in 2020. Although the FDA does not know how long ranitidine in Zantac has been contaminated with NDMA, they know that the longer the drug sits on the shelf, the higher the concentration of the carcinogenic chemical.

Since that time, multiple Zantac (ranitidine) lawsuits have been filed claiming:

  • Defective product design because ranitidine is an unstable molecule
  • The label on the Zantac drug failed to warn consumers of cancer risks adequately

Cancers Linked to NDMA Exposure

Cancers linked to NDMA exposure include the following:

  • Gastric/Stomach cancer
  • Bladder cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer

Other Health Problems Linked to Zantac Cancer Diagnosis

Other health complications could appear with a cancer diagnosis due to NDMA exposure from taking ranitidine or Zantac. If you are suffering from the following conditions, you may be eligible for compensation from the drug manufacturer:

Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). This rare lung disorder causes high blood pressure in the lungs. This causes blood vessels in the lungs to narrow and raises the pressure in the pulmonary artery above normal levels.

Crohn’s Disease. This inflammatory bowel disease causes the digestive tract to inflame, causing severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, cramps, and weight loss.

What to Do if You Were Diagnosed With Cancer After Taking Zantac

To qualify for a Zantac lawsuit, you must meet a few requirements. This includes proven Zantac use, a cancer diagnosis, and a connection between the diagnosis and Zantac. Although claims against generic and over-the-counter ranitidine medications are no longer included in lawsuits, lawsuits against the manufacturers of brand name Zantac are ongoing.

You may be entitled to recover compensation for the following:

  • Travel for treatment
  • Lost wages for you or a family member who may be your caregiver
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Lost ability to earn
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Funeral expenses
