Finding the Right Attorney for Your Zantac Lawsuit

Written by Malman Law, reviewed by Steve J. Malman.

It’s always important to find the right attorney for your personal injury claim. With a Zantac lawsuit, the stakes are even higher. There are many questions you can ask to be sure you are hiring a competent advocate who will fight on your behalf.

In any personal injury claim, the stakes can be high. Injured parties need and want to receive compensation for the damages they have suffered. If the case is not handled in the right ways by experienced lawyers, their compensation will be diminished. The same is true for Zantac lawsuits. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with cancer after taking Zantac or its generic form ranitidine, do not procrastinate in seeking the help of qualified Zantac lawyers.

What to Look for in Zantac Attorneys

The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) officially issued a recall of Zantac and ranitidine in April of 2020. You don’t want to risk such a serious lawsuit to just any Zantac lawyers; you need an attorney who works tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve. You may be confused about where to start your search or how to select the right Zantac lawyers for you. Here are some questions to ask when searching for a lawyer to handle your case:

  • How long has the attorney been practicing?
  • What percentage of the lawyer’s practice involves personal injury cases? 
  • Has the attorney represented other cases related to products or medications?
  • Have they worked specifically on Zantac/ranitidine lawsuits?
  • Does the lawyer represent both plaintiffs and defendants in general? You may not want to be represented by an attorney who mainly represents defendants or represents them at all. Helping clients avoid liability is much different from advocating for injured individuals. 
  • Would the lawyer personally handle your case, or would your case be passed off to someone with less experience in the same office? You will want to know who has the primary responsibility for your case and who will be your direct contact.
  • What is their fee structure? Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. If they do not win money for you, they do not get paid. Once you receive a settlement or court award, they take a percentage of those fees. You will also pay for other legal expenses such as copies of medical records out of your compensation as well. Sometimes the attorney will allow those fees to come directly out of their cut.

Additionally, you may want to read their reviews and determine if there have been any official complaints made to the Illinois State Bar Association about them.
