Have you developed cancer after taking Zantac? You may be eligible for compensation in a Michigan class action lawsuit about this defective drug.
Many of us suffer from heartburn, and Zantac was one of the many ways people treated the condition. Unfortunately, many Michigan residents have since been diagnosed with cancer. That cancer may be linked to the now-recalled medication.
At Christensen Law, we understand that it can be difficult to seek compensation for your losses when a major corporation is behind your suffering. That’s why you may need a lawyer’s help to file a Michigan Zantac cancer lawsuit.
Why Is Zantac So Dangerous?
Zantac contains a substance called NDMA, which is a known carcinogen, which means it can cause cancer. This substance is only used for research purposes, but it may appear in other places as a byproduct. Sadly, not every company is careful about testing for this dangerous chemical.
Now, the FDA has recalled Zantac because of the unacceptable levels of NDMA found in the drug. These over-the-counter antacids expose those who use it to dangerous levels of this substance over time. Now, it has been linked to cancers of the bladder, stomach, uterus, and kidneys. If you’ve been injured by Zantac, you may have grounds to join a class action lawsuit for your losses.
Compensation for a Michigan Zantac Cancer Claim
Your medication may have made you sick, but that doesn’t mean you’re out of options for compensation. You have a chance to get compensated for both your economic damages and your non-economic damages. These losses following the accident aren’t always just financial, after all.
Although your cancer treatments may cost thousands of dollars—not to mention the lost wages while receiving treatment—you may have some concerns about the mental and emotional toll your illness can take. Because of this, you may need to seek compensation through a mass tort or class action lawsuit, in which multiple people injured by this drug can take action against the manufacturer of Zantac all at once.
Luckily, your Michigan mass tort lawyer can help you seek compensation. If you took Zantac and you’re suffering from cancer caused by that medicine, you may be eligible for compensation that covers these damages, among others:
- Medical costs
- Household services
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental distress
