Filing a Zantac Class Action Lawsuit
Injured by your medication? You may need to file a Zantac class action lawsuit to get compensated for the losses you’ve suffered.
When we’re prescribed medication, we expect those meds to be safe. Sadly, you may have found out the hard way that some medications just aren’t that safe. Now, you’ve been hurt because of generic or name-brand Zantac.
You’re not alone here. Many people are choosing to fight together by filing a Zantac class action lawsuit with the help of the lawyers at Craig Swapp & Associates. Your attorney can help you get involved and get the help you need, along with other injury victims, whether you’re in Washington state, Utah, or Idaho.
Illnesses Caused by Zantac
Zantac is an over-the-counter medication prescribed for heartburn and acid reflux disease. Previously, it was prescribed broadly, not just to adults in general, but also sometimes to kids and pregnant women. Scientists have recently found signs of a carcinogen, or cancer-causing substance, in the drug.
This carcinogen can lead to many different types of cancer. Below is a short list of types of cancer you or a loved one may have suffered due to this medication:
- Blood cancers, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia
- Pediatric cancer
- Liver cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Brain cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
Who’s Liable for Defective Meds?
When you’ve been injured by a defective or contaminated drug, knowing who’s at fault for your suffering is key. When others cause your suffering with their carelessness, they generally are responsible for paying for your losses.
In your Zantac class action lawsuit, you were injured because the medication may have caused your cancer, which is a problem of drug design and manufacturing. That means the company that manufactured the drug may be at fault for the losses you and the other people in the mass tort suffered.
Compensation in Class Action Lawsuits
Mass tort or class action lawsuits cover the needs of several people injured by the same product. Acting together with the help of your mass tort lawyer can help you seek compensation, which can be tough when it’s just you against a corporation.
You and your fellow injury victims have a chance to get compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Your damages include all losses you’ve suffered because of the medication. That should include your financial losses, but you shouldn’t leave out the emotional and psychological effects of your losses, either. Below are just a few of the damages you may be eligible for:
- Medical bills
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of society
