Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/26/2019 -- As consumers across the nation file lawsuits against the makers of Zantac, a popular heartburn and acid reflux drug that has been shown to contain a potential carcinogen, Silver & Silver encourages all individuals who have taken Zantac to visit the firm for a free consultation.
Silver & Silver is home to leading personal injury attorneys in Philadelphia, PA, and can help clients affected by the dangers of Zantac determine if their experience with the drug merits a claim. Individuals who take Zantac and have been diagnosed with cancer, or suffered other adverse health effects such as liver damage, could be entitled to compensation. The attorneys at Silver & Silver specialize in building and litigating these types of personal injury cases.
Zantac has been around since 1983, but the Food and Drug Administration recently discovered that the drug's active ingredient, ranitidine, is metabolized by the human body into a cancer-causing agent called N-nitrosodimethylamine, otherwise known as NDMA. In October 2019, drug companies issued a recall of Zantac, and major pharmacies such as Walgreens and CVS wiped their shelves of all ranitidine products.
Many lawsuits have already been filed against the makers of Zantac, alleging that the drug companies understood the health risks of Zantac and knowingly endangered people who take the drug by continuing to manufacture it, distribute it to the public, and market it without disclosing the truth about ranitidine. Legal experts are predicting that a large number of class action and personal injury lawsuits will be filed in the coming months against such drug makers as Boehringer Ingelheim and Sanofi, which manufactured Zantac as an oral, over-the-counter treatment for heartburn and acid reflux.
Individuals who believe they have been affected by the cancer-causing agent in Zantac are encouraged to contact Silver & Silver today to schedule a free consultation.
