Ranitidine is a blood pressure medication and an anti-nausea medication, but Ranitidine is also a type of cancer-fighting drug. It can be used to treat high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, angina, diarrhea, asthma, dizziness, flu and allergies. From these it’s clear Ranitidine is well known for its ability to help combat many types of illnesses, but the question remains, what about Ranitidine Lawsuit? A number of suits have been launched by those who believe that the manufacturer of Ranitidine knew that this medication was addictive and harmful and sold it as a medicine even though it was a controlled substance. From my experience with Ranitidine Lawsuits, the settlements usually favor the plaintiffs.
The reason the claims often favor the plaintiffs is that they often seek compensation based on the danger that the FDA did not perceive when approving Ranitidine as a medicine. FDA did not approve this particular drug based on the fact that it was dangerous and could cause death. They approved the product based on the fact that the side effects were mild, and there were no reported deaths. This is not to say that there are no reports of deaths from taking Ranitidine. In fact, Ranitidine is very addictive, so it is possible that someone could die from taking too much of the medication.
A Ranitidine Lawsuit may be filed in any state where the victim died from consuming too much of the drug. The first step to filing a Ranitidine Lawsuit would be determining whether or not you have a case based on toxicity. For example, if the victim dies from ingesting too much, then you would be able to file a wrongful death action lawsuit. You would need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the death was caused by the defendant’s negligence. A representative of the defense can assist you with this information and then move forward with your claims.
