About the Zantac Lawsuit

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently recalled the popular heartburn medication Zantac due to its link to various forms of cancer. Research has shown that ranitidine – the active ingredient in Zantac – can be contaminated with NDMA or N-Nitrosodimethylamine.

Organizations that recognize NDMA as a probable carcinogen include the:

  • Food and Drug Administration
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • World Health Organization (WHO)
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Sanofi, the primary manufacturer of Zantac, has been accused of corporate negligence that put potentially millions of people at risk of cancer. The corporation does not appear to have done enough to test the dangers of its product. The company might have also known that NDMA contamination could have affected its products but did nothing to warn consumers about it.

A Hidden Danger

In 2019, chemical investigations lab Valisure found that the ranitidine contaminated by NDMA was prominent in most of the Zantac tablets it tested. The information from their tests is what prompted the FDA to create a mandatory Zantac recall in April 2020.

Valisure’s tests were unable to determine how long Zantac products have been contaminated by NDMA. However, it did determine that the contamination seemed to worsen the longer the product sat unused. This discovery seems to suggest that NDMA contamination can occur in any amount of ranitidine, which makes all Zantac unsafe. Some studies have also determined that ranitidine might create NDMA as a byproduct of digestion.

Holding Them Accountable

Concerns about ranitidine and NDMA exposure have been around long enough for Sanofi to take some form of action. Either researching the link itself or warning consumers about the potential link would have been appropriate first steps to make things right, yet the Big Pharma corporation did nothing of the sort. This negligence and inaction are what can make Sanofi liable for the harm caused by Zantac, and what justifies so many lawsuits from afflicted consumers.

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer after using Zantac, especially after a relatively expansive period, then you might have a valid claim to file against Sanofi or another Zantac manufacturer.

Zantac Lawsuit FAQ

  • What damages can you get from a Zantac lawsuit? 
    You can sue for all damages related to cancer caused by Zantac, including past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering.
  • Should you hire a lawyer? 
    Yes, you should hire an attorney to help with your Zantac lawsuit because going head-to-head with Sanofi by yourself could be problematic for your claim. A lawyer can handle all aspects of it, empower your Zantac lawsuit claim with their experience, and also help you understand if your claim should be part of a larger mass tort against the defendant.
  • Who is the ideal Zantac plaintiff? 
    People who have been diagnosed with some form of cancer – often stomach, kidney, liver, and intestinal cancers – after taking Zantac for months or years are likely to have the strongest cases against Sanofi. However, don’t assume you don’t have a case because you didn’t take Zantac for long or don’t have any evidence that you did take it. Let our attorneys review your situation to see if you should be suing for compensation, too.

The opinions that matter Most

Read our 5-Star Reviews
  • Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable

    “I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”

  • He will fight for you and do whatever he can to help you

    “Mr. James Farmer is a very intelligent and skilled lawyer that knows what he is doing and will go out of his way to help. I am very thankful to have had him as my attorney!! I was facing some very serious charges and with Mr. Farmers unbelievable skills, I was found not guilty on all charges. I would highly recommend Mr. Farmer to anyone who needs legal help. I cannot stress enough that he will fight for you and do whatever he can to help you. Thanks, Mr. James Farmer for all that you have done for me!! I also want to thank Patrick, Gary and his staff for their hard work, kindness, and professionalism.”

  • Showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck

    “James Farmer and his team exceeded all expectations! I had a very serious criminal case and his firm was recommended to me by a family member. I was incarcerated during this time and he and his associate Stephanie came to update me on multiple occasions on the progress of my case. They were not only professional but the amount of time and energy they put into my case showed me true dedication that goes far beyond a paycheck! They prepared for trial, but in the end was able to work out a plea deal that did not include any jail time. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Farmer and his team for any criminal case!”

  • Thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning

    “From the initial consultation, I knew I needed James Farmer and his team on my side. He was thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning, prior to even hiring his firm. Once I officially hired his firm, he and his colleague Mr. Melvin Allen moved to strategically place me in the best position possible. They supported me throughout the process by making sure I understood what was happening and I felt extremely grateful to have them on my side! Long story short, my case was successfully completed with a favorable outcome! An outcome I couldn’t even imagine was possible but Mr. Allen’s expertise, strategy, and courtroom presence made it all possible! My wife and I are forever grateful and will always look to this firm on any future needs and you should, too!”

  • Keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with

    I just recently had James E. Farmer handle my second DUI and I received the best possible outcome I could've wished for. The judge I had could've really laid down the hammer on me but James worked his magic and did an incredible job. He knows what he is talking about and is very humble. He keeps in touch with you throughout the whole process, and even after your case is over with, and he explains everything so you know exactly what is going on. This is my first time hiring James and without a doubt, I would hire him again. He would be the first person I'd call if another legal problem should ever rise-- though I've made a promise to myself to stay away from the law as much as possible. He will be highly recommended to anyone that asks me if I know a great lawyer.
