Were you or someone you love prescribed Valsartan to help manage high blood pressure or prevent heart failure, then subsequently diagnosed with cancer? Valsartan contaminated with N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) is classified as a probable human carcinogen. Anastopoulo Law Firm is preparing a mass torts lawsuit for injured Valsartan patients who were not warned about the cancer-causing risks associated with the medication.
By participating in Anastopoulo Law Firm’s Valsartan lawsuit, you could recover financial damages for your ongoing medical care, income loss, and pain and suffering. Our team will calculate the financial expenses and losses of each injured party. We will also make sure our case is filed on time and complies with state and federal mass torts rules and regulations.
The FDA Recalled Valsartan After Learning of the Risks
In July 2018, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials issued a recall on Valsartan, including products containing it as an active ingredient. The recall affected products sold by:
- Major Pharmaceuticals
- Solco Healthcare
- Teva Pharmaceuticals
You might experience stress after learning that a drug prescribed to improve your health has been recalled. Review your potential to join other injured consumers in seeking compensation with one of our team members. We will clarify your eligibility for the Valsartan lawsuits, what you could expect to receive, our efforts to negotiate a settlement for all injured parties, and how much time we have left to weigh settlement offers or meet the statute of limitations.
Potential Injuries from Contaminated Valsartan
NDMA, the substance that contaminated the drug, can cause serious harm because it is a known carcinogen. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, NDMA consumption can also lead to noncancerous liver damage. In addition, cancers connected to NDMA can include liver, kidney, and lung cancers.
If you took Valsartan and believe it contributed to your current health situation, our team can help you assign financial liability to the drug’s manufacturer or the company that manufactured portions of the drug in a contaminated facility.
Our Anastopoulo Law Firm Team is Committed to Your Recovery
When our mass torts team represents you, we handle all case-related details on your behalf. Our goal is to ensure you get the monetary award you deserve without interrupting your recovery. When you join other injured patients in seeking compensation for your injuries, our team will provide you with ongoing updates as your case progresses as well as:
- Read and review your medical evidence
- Collect evidence of your Valsartan usage
- Consult medical experts and scientific data
- Comply with the statute of limitations
We also negotiate on your behalf for a fair settlement. We help you field and weigh settlement offers you receive as part of your personal injury lawsuit against Valsartan. We also advise you on the adequacy of each offer and make recommendations on accepting or rejecting it. Of course, the final decision is always yours to make, but our team endeavors to ensure you make a well-informed decision.
Compensation That Mass Tort Plaintiffs Can Recover
Being diagnosed with cancer because of a drug that was supposed to improve your health can feel devastating. Your concerns over your health and how you will pay for the medical care you now require should not exacerbate your current medical situation. When you join our mass torts lawsuit, you can request compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills, including physical and mental healthcare costs
- Assistive medical devices, including hospital beds and wheelchairs
- Current and future loss of income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Treatment-related travel expenses for ongoing medical care
- Physical impairment, pain and suffering, and mental and emotional distress
- Wrongful death damages and funeral and burial expenses, if applicable
You do not have to seek financial recovery on your own. Our team will make sure your noneconomic damages are valued appropriately. You also do not have to calculate your recoverable damages on your own. Instead, our team helps each plaintiff assess the financial impact of their exposure to NDMA and fight for the recovery they deserve.
The Importance of Filing Our Mass Torts Case on Time
Your location determines the amount of time allowed to file a mass torts lawsuit. Each state will have its statute of limitations, and our team will ensure you are aware of yours and any exceptions to it. We also ensure your case is filed in time to comply with the statute of limitations.
Failing to meet the state’s filing deadline could put your right to recovery at considerable risk. For example, you could find yourself prohibited from filing your lawsuit, or a judge could dismiss it before it ever could be heard. We make sure this does not happen by filing your lawsuit within the allotted time. Doing so also ensures we retain the ability to take your case to trial if it cannot be settled out of court.
