Heartburn, acid reflux, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can be painful conditions to live with. Doctors often prescribe proton pump inhibitors (PPI) like Nexium to help relieve the symptoms of these ailments. If you or someone you love suffered unexpected side effects from taking Nexium, such as kidney damage, you are not alone.
You and other injured patients like you could be entitled to compensation, and we can help. At Anastopoulo Law Firm, our South Carolina Nexium lawyer could build your legal case and help you join a mass tort, seeking compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.
The Medical Dangers Nexium May Pose
Research in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) cites a connection between the use of PPIs like Nexium and chronic kidney disease. Use of Nexium may have been a factor if you or someone you love experienced a sudden onset of one or more of the following symptoms:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Fatigue and weakness
- Changes in urine frequency
- Muscle cramps
- Swollen feet and ankles
- Persistent high blood pressure
- Shortness of breath or chest pain
If any of these symptoms led to a diagnosis of chronic kidney disease after taking Nexium, our mass torts team can help. We can look for evidence to establish the connection and seek compensation on your behalf from the drug’s manufacturer.
Costs of Treating Chronic Kidney Disease
Because your kidneys act as a filter for your body, kidney damage or failure can lead to a wide range of health concerns. According to Mayo Clinic research, treating and managing chronic kidney disease can be costly, as you may need treatment for:
- The disease’s underlying cause
- Complications of the disease
- End-stage kidney disease
Medications, dialysis, and kidney transplants could all be part of your treatment plan. If you or a loved one are undergoing these costly treatments to restore your health, we can help you seek recovery of these and related expenses.

Potential Compensation for Injury Victims
At Anastopoulo Law Firm, we represent mass tort clients injured by drug manufacturers on a contingency-fee basis. Our fee agreement means we handle all upfront expenses of building your case, including investigative and court costs. We only collect our fee when you recover compensation. Damages we help you fight to recover include:
- Required medical care
- Lost wages and income
- Mental anxiety
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
When you file a Nexium lawsuit in South Carolina, our lawyers calculate your damages and use that number to steer settlement negotiations in your favor. Our team also makes sure that you understand our transparent fee agreement before agreeing to representation.
We Help You Prove Your Right to Compensation
Building a mass tort case means compiling evidence and supporting documents from a large number of plaintiffs simultaneously. Our team can organize your evidence and prepare you to join other injured parties in litigation. Evidence we may collect for your Nexium case includes:
- Medical records that establish a connection between your use of Nexium, the onset of your symptoms, and your diagnosis
- Medical bills that prove the costs of your current and future medical care
- Income records that prove the amount of income you’ve lost if you are unable to work
- A written prognosis that establishes your treatment plan and estimates the care you will require in the future
We may also consult medical and financial experts to support your case. While you concentrate on rebuilding your health, our team focuses on building a compelling case to prove the compensation you are entitled to due to negligence.
Do not Wait to Join Other Injured Clients
If you are injured or your family lost a loved one because of a drug manufacturer’s negligent actions, the law lets you seek compensation. However, like all civil lawsuits filed in South Carolina, yours has a time limit called the statute of limitations. When you seek compensation from an at-fault party, S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530 generally entitles you to three years to file a lawsuit for:
- Personal injury
- Wrongful death
When our team builds your case and works toward a financial settlement, we also file your lawsuit within the allotted time. Doing so protects your right to go to court if a settlement is unreachable.
