Zantac Stomach and Bladder Cancer Lawsuit

Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with: Stomach, Bladder, Kidney, Pancreatic, Liver, Breast, Testicular or Colon Cancer due to exposure to NDMA a carcinogenic agent in the prescription or over the counter drug ZANTAC?

The legal team here at Flynn and Associates would be honored to provide you or your loved one with the highest quality of legal representation as well as assisting you during this very difficult time along with securing the compensation you deserve.

The first question to ask yourself is whether you have had exposure to the carcinogenic agent in ZANTAC within the last 6 months of your cancer diagnosis. In these types of cases, it is important to compile as much evidence as possible that points to the drug ZANTAC having caused at least in part, your cancer diagnosis.

Therefore, you must keep all doctors’ notes or documentation that may help us to hammer out a timeline connecting your cancer diagnosis to the use of ZANTAC.

In the case that you have not used ZANTAC within six months of your diagnosis, it is important to contemplate if you had sustained Zantac use within the last two years as this period may have been instrumental in the development of your cancer.

As stated above the FDA has determined and linked ZANTAC to the carcinogenic cancer-causing agent known as NDMA and Ranitidine.  Exposure to a carcinogen like NDMA dramatically increases your likelihood of developing a very serious and possibly life-threatening cancer.

If you have had exposure to NDMA or any other possible carcinogens regularly you must have regular checkups with your doctor to ensure that if cancer develops that you can act quickly to treat your diagnosis. The information provided by your doctor or specialists will be extremely helpful in building your case and ensuring that you receive the compensation that you deserve.

If you or a loved one have developed cancer after sustained use of the pharmaceutical drug Zantac you may also be able to collect compensation that could ensure that both you and your family are taken care of during this very difficult time.
