Zantac Lawsuit Attorneys in Birmingham

Compassionate & Experienced Mass Tort Litigators

Heartburn is an unpleasant digestive condition that affects millions of Americans each day, prompting many to turn to over-the-counter medications to reduce the symptoms. Zantac is one of the most popular heartburn medications and has been available in pharmacies since 1983—almost thirty years. Regrettably, a recent investigation discovered the main active ingredient (ranitidine) could produce the carcinogen N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) when exposed to high temperatures.

What does that mean for you? It means that prolonged use of Zantac and other ranitidine-based drugs may increase your risk of cancer. Many of these drugs have been recalled since this information came to light, but millions of Americans have taken Zantac over the years and are suffering severe health consequences. If you have developed cancer after using Zantac, the attorneys at Montgomery Ponder in Birmingham can help.

The Premises of a Lawsuit

Filing a lawsuit against the manufacturers of Zantac is based on a few fundamental premises:

  • That the manufacturer of the drug should have discovered the problem
  • That pharmacies, medical providers, the FDA, and those who take the medication should have been given adequate warning of the possible side effects
  • That the cancer-causing properties of Zantac resulted in your cancer diagnosis and subsequent pain, trauma, disability, or death

Have You Been Diagnosed with Cancer After Taking Zantac?

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac, you may be eligible for compensation. A lawsuit against the drug manufacturer who should have known of these fatal side effects can recover both economic and non-economic damages.

Compensation can include:

  • Medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages and lost earning capacity
  • Long-term disability
  • Punitive damages
  • Wrongful death compensation

If you have a question about whether or not you have a case, or you feel you’re ready to move forward, then Montgomery Ponder can help.
