Experienced Representation & Free Case Evaluations!
It’s assumed when you are prescribed a drug or even when you purchase an over the counter medication, that it has been approved by the FDA, meaning that it is safe for use, and that it will help you get better. Unfortunately, the medical drug scene is a little more complex than that. Unethical doctors and drug manufacturers have the ability to make an enormous impact on a wide variety of people. When serious side effects or revealing studies are swept under the rug, disaster can result.

Causes of Dangerous Drugs
The pharmaceutical industry makes billions yearly. Even when drugs are found dangerous or unsafe, major drug companies only shell out small percentages of their actual incomes.
Many times, dangerous drugs are caused by the following:
- Failure to report the negative results of drug testing to the FDA
- Studying the side effects of the drug for too short a time
- Observing only a tiny group of people on the drug
Although the FDA monitors the release of drugs onto the market, it can take years before any substantial action against a dangerous drug is taken. It is often more beneficial for those who have been injured by a drug to take legal action that can cover their medical costs, pain and suffering, and more. Whether you are considering a class action lawsuit or a personal injury lawsuit, talk to us to find out your options.
The popular heartburn medication, Zantac, has been linked to a risk of cancer, prompting nationwide legal action and a recall of the drug. An investigation by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revealed a potential N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) contamination in the drug, a substance which has been labeled as a probable carcinogen. The risk and related recall also applies to ranitidine, the generic form of Zantac. For patients who use these drugs, the FDA recommends speaking with a doctor about ceasing use.
If you or a loved one is a regular Zantac user and has been diagnosed with cancer, contact our Chicago dangerous drug attorneys today. We can represent you in a claim against the pharmaceutical companies and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
