Zantac Injury Lawyers In Seattle
Anyone would be upset by the idea of getting cancer from a medication they were taking to treat heartburn; it is hard to think of a worse trade. Unfortunately, that is exactly what has happened to thousands of people who were prescribed Zantac (ranitidine) or even took it over the counter to ease the discomfort that comes with heartburn.
If you or a loved one has been harmed by the use of Zantac, it is important to understand your legal right to compensation. You were injured through no fault of your own and should not have to bear the financial burden of your damages alone. At Dubin Law Group, we are strong advocates for the victims of dangerous drugs in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties and across the state of Washington. You can rely on us to take on the insurance companies and aggressively pursue the full compensation you deserve for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.
The Problem With Zantac
Zantac and its generic counterparts contain nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a probable carcinogen that may be linked to cancer. If NDMA sounds familiar, it is because it was previously found in a number of blood pressure medications. The rubber hit the road when an online pharmacy in Connecticut found that Zantac contained levels of NDMA in excess of the FDA’s recommended limits.
FDA Reaction And Recall
The FDA requested the removal of Zantac and all other ranitidine products from the market in April 2020. This was on top of a voluntary recall by the manufacturers that began in 2019. The FDA would not take this step lightly; it is important to take stock of your situation if you have begun suffering from complications after taking Zantac or a similar medication.
