On April 1, 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested all ranitidine drug manufacturers, including Zantac, to stop selling their over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medications immediately. The heartburn medication Zantac, which contains the active ingredient ranitidine, quickly became the world’s bestselling drug with over $1 billion in annual sales. According to the FDA, some ranitidine medications contain unsafe levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which can steadily increase. While the acceptable daily level of NDMA consumption in humans is less than 100 nanograms, some doses of Zantac contained up to 3,000,000 nanograms. As a well-known carcinogen in humans, NDMA subjected unknowing consumers to hazardous risks of cancer and many other health problems. The chances of suffering from gastric cancer increase approximately 34 percent for those who ingested high levels of NDMA.
Countless victims have already been diagnosed with cancer as a result of taking Zantac. Some of these victims have initiated claims to hold ranitidine manufacturers, such as Lannett Company, Sanofi, and Boehringer Ingelheim, liable for their reckless disregard of consumers’ health and safety in pursuit of larger profit margins. If you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac, although no amount of money can erase your pain and suffering, you may have the right to file a lawsuit. Costly litigation can help force manufacturers to take responsibility for their carelessness and ensure that justice is served.

The Dietrich Law Firm P.C. recognizes that victims unfortunate enough to develop cancer caused from taking Zantac may be in a fight for their lives. Our skilled personal injury attorneys strongly believe that all medications approved by the FDA for human consumption should not result in cancer or other health problems. Victims diagnosed with cancer after taking prescription or OTC forms of ranitidine may be entitled to seek monetary compensation for damages through a product liability claim, which may include the following compensation:
- All lost wages from missed work;
- Reduced future earning capacity;
- All past, present, and future medical expenses resulting from your cancer and other health conditions;
- Pain and suffering caused by your cancer and related health problems, as well as treatment and recovery;
- Extreme mental anguish;
- Loss of enjoyment in life;
- Loss of consortium; and
- Any other unforeseen damages associated with your cancer or illness.
With the support of our expert pharmaceutical scientists, biotech engineers, and oncologists regarding the overall safety of Zantac, levels of NDMA found in ranitidine compared to acceptable levels, NDMA’s strong correlation with cancer, types of cancer most commonly associated with Zantac, and how a reasonable drug manufacturer would have acted under similar circumstances, our seasoned team can accurately determine liability and build a strong case. It is important to be able to prove that you took Zantac regularly through medical records, pharmacy receipts, statements from witnesses, or other corroborating evidence. You should be able to demonstrate harm suffered attributed to Zantac consumption and validate the scope of your cancer and related health problems. For instance, being diagnosed with an NDMA-related digestive tract cancer (such as pancreatic, stomach, esophageal, liver, small intestine, colorectal, or bladder) or a blood cancer (such as leukemia, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, or multiple myeloma) would substantiate that your cancer is Zantac-related.
Calculating damages in product liability lawsuits can be a remarkably complex undertaking. Accurately estimating the anticipated value of your claim involves determining the types and extent of all your damages. A variety of different components can greatly influence how much compensation you will receive such as your age, occupation, overall health before being diagnosed, the type of cancer, the expected duration of your cancer treatment, the pain and side effects resulting from your treatment, any essential future treatment, and life expectancy if the cancer is terminal. Additionally, if our veteran attorneys can demonstrate that the pharmaceutical company acted grossly negligent or reckless, punitive damages may also be obtainable. Punitive damages are meant to discourage other drug manufacturers from acting similarly.

The loss of a loved one because of Zantac-related cancer can put family members in an extremely difficult situation both emotionally and financially. For those who lost a family member from cancer caused by taking Zantac, although nothing can eliminate your loved one’s suffering or the pain caused by their untimely loss, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible manufacturer and any other parties deemed to be liable. Wrongful death claims were designed to provide surviving family members with financial compensation and peace of mind after their unexpected loss. Determining damages in a wrongful death lawsuit is a tremendously complicated task that usually requires the assistance of a forensic economist and other expert witnesses. The victim’s loved ones may be able to recover compensation for past and future losses, including:
- All medical expenses incurred because of the victim’s cancer treatment;
- Lost wages and additional work-related benefits, which includes future earnings or benefits if the victim had lived;
- Loss of guidance, care, companionship, and comfort;
- Damages resulting from the sadness and emotional pain suffered by family members;
- All funeral and other related burial costs; and
- Punitive damages.
Most importantly, filing a claim can provide a sense of justice for the victim’s entire family. Your lawsuit will force Zantac manufacturers to take legal responsibility for their overall indifference and the resulting damages. It often takes costly litigation to influence drug companies to be more concerned with consumers’ health. Please note that there are strict time constraints applicable to wrongful death claims, so we urge you to contact the best of the best at the Dietrich Law Firm P.C. as soon as possible to preserve your rights.
