Zantac Lawsuit FAQ

 

What Kind Of Cancer Does Zantac Cause?

Preliminary testing by the FDA show some samples of Zantac and Ranitidine contain higher levels of NDMA than food. The concern with NDMA is that it can potentially cause cancer, even in small amounts. The longer the exposure to this carcinogen, the higher the chances are for developing cancer and other health problems such as liver disease. NDMA exposure from Zantac (ranitidine) is linked to sever cancers such as:

  • Stomach Cancer

  • Cancer in the small and large intestines

  • Colorectal cancer

  • Esophageal Cancer

  • Kidney Cancer

  • Bladder Cancer

  • Liver Cancer

  • Prostate Cancer

  • Pancreatic Cancer

  • Breast Cancer

  • Leukemia

  • Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

  • Multiple Myeloma

  • Other

Why Is Zantac Banned?

All versions of the heartburn drug Zantac (ranitidine) have been pulled from the U.S. market due to possible contamination with a probable cancer-causing chemical, the U.S. Food and Drug administration says. In some ranitidine products, NDMA increases over time and when the drugs are stored at higher temperatures, which may result in people being exposed to unacceptable levels of the chemical, according to the FDA. In December 2019, Congresswoman Rosa L. DeLauro urged in a letter to the FDA to remove ranitidine from shelves and ban all sales in the United States because of the cancer risk

NDMA is an environmental contaminant that can be found in water and foods and has been classified as a "probable human carcinogen" by the World Health Organization.

How Much Is A Zantac Lawsuit Worth?

As this is a fairly new development there has not been a settlement to give an accurate range of value to any Zantac lawsuits. Teh Zantac litigation will most likely be resolved with a global settlement of cases. The cases will likely be ranked into settlement tiers based on the severity of the plaintiff's injuries and strength of claim. Some attorney's speculate that cases in the top tier could be worth around $500,000. Second tier cases may be in the $250,000 range and the lowest tier cases will likely be worth $100,000 or less.

Outside of providing the basic qualifying events there isn't much for you to do other than provide your information and join the suit. Provided you took Zantac (or another ranitidine product) on a daily or regular basis and were diagnosed with cancer after you may be eligible.

Are The Lawsuits Separate Or Class Action?

Each plaintiff's lawsuit is separate. But to streamline litigation, all the lawsuits combine into an MDL (Multi-District Litigation).

In an MDL there is one judge who presides over every case during the pretrial stages. Then a few cases go to trial. The results of thes bellweather trials are critical. They determine if there will be settlements, and for how much.

MDL's are different from class action lawsuits. In class actions, every member of the class gets the same settlement amount. In MDL's, each plaintiff gets a separate amount based on his/her own case.

At this time, there is one Zantac MDL out of the Southern District of Florida. The defendants include drug makers Sanofi and Boehringer.

How Much Will A Zantac Lawsuit Cost Me?

We can refer you to attorney's that work on contingency and will not require you to pay them an up-front fee to take you onto the Zantac Lawsuit. They work on a contingency basis which means if they win a case they will get a percentage of the award. This takes the risk off of you. If you win your attorney wins. If not, then you are not burdened with the legal costs to see your case through to a potential settlement.
