Finding the Right Chicago Zantac Lawyer for Your Claim

Consumers who took Zantac and suffered injuries, as well as families who lost loved ones, are entitled to compensation for their losses. Getting a fair financial recovery is dependent upon the lawyer that they hire. Here’s how to choose the right one. 

In late 2019, an independent lab found concerning levels of NDMA, a known carcinogen, in Zantac. Its use has now been linked to numerous cancer types, including cancers of the bladder, breast, lung, stomach, and pancreas. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered that Zantac be removed entirely from the market in April of 2020. Evidence exists showing that big pharma knew about these dangers decades ago when Zantac was first available by prescription and then later over-the-counter (OTC).

If you or a family member took Zantac or the generic version ranitidine and were subsequently diagnosed with cancer, an experienced Chicago Zantac lawyer can help. You deserve compensation for your pain and suffering and your medical bills. If you lost a loved one, you deserve compensation for their loss. However, to maximize your claim, you need to find the right Chicago Zantac attorney for your claim.

Find a Lawyer Knowledgeable in Zantac Claims

Zantac claims are different from other personal injury claims in many ways. Just any personal injury lawyer won’t do for a Zantac injury claim. You need a lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to Zantac claims. Your Chicago Zantac lawyer should have an in-depth understanding of:

  1. Why Zantac manufacturers are liable for your injuries and losses
  2. How Zantac might have contributed to your cancer diagnosis
  3. The type of cancer you or your loved one has
  4. Your damages and losses
  5. Your legal rights for pursuing a claim for compensation
  6. Representing clients in multi-district litigation

Other Factors to Consider

In addition to the Chicago Zantac attorney’s knowledge and experience with all that’s involved with Zantac injury claims, there are some general factors everyone should consider, no matter how they were injured. These include:

  1. Their standing with the Illinois State Bar
  2. The attorney’s reputation and involvement with the community
  3. If they will be the one working on your case or if others will assist
  4. The attorney’s education, professional memberships, recognitions, and awards
  5. Reviews from previous clients
  6. Track record of success
  7. How many Zantac claims have they handled
  8. Are they willing to take your case to trial
  9. Their sympathy and compassion for your injuries and damages
  10. What they estimate your claim to be worth

There are many factors you should weigh when choosing the right attorney for your case.
