Why You Should Talk to a Philadelphia Product Liability Attorney if Injured by Zantac

If you experienced serious health issues or received a cancer diagnosis after taking Zantac, it may be time to reach out to an attorney about your legal options. Even though Zantac was taken off the market in 2020, many people are still being diagnosed and learning that they have health problems due to this former over-the-counter drug.

If this sounds like you, a Philadelphia product liability attorney can listen to your experience, guide you through the complex legal process, and help you obtain justice and compensation for the losses you have suffered from this heartburn pill. Below, we will go over seven essential reasons why you should consider talking to a product liability lawyer as soon as possible if injured by Zantac.

1.     We will help you determine whether you are eligible to file a Zantac lawsuit

It can be difficult to know whether you are eligible to file a Zantac lawsuit. However, a product liability lawyer will be able to review the facts and details of your case and determine whether you meet the requirements. Some of the requirements that we may be looking for are whether you took Zantac frequently or on a regular basis for an extended period of time, you were diagnosed with cancer or another serious health condition after taking Zantac, there is a direct connection between you taking Zantac and your diagnosis, and it has been less than two years since you learned about your diagnosis.

2.     We can help you gather valuable and convincing evidence

If we believe that you have a viable product liability case, we will help you gather strong and convincing evidence to support your claim. A few of the most common forms of evidence that we may help you gather are medical records, doctor reports, receipts, photos, videos, leftover pill bottles, eyewitness statements, and expert witness testimonies. These pieces of evidence may be able to prove liability, establish causation, and show damages, which are all vital in a successful product liability case.

3.     We will ensure that you do not make any mistakes

When handling a product liability case on your own, it is easy to make mistakes and errors. However, our Philadelphia product liability attorneys will review all paperwork, documents, and information to ensure that there are no mistakes made throughout the entire process. Even a small mistake like missing a deadline could jeopardize your case and affect the compensation you receive, which is why we are here to help you avoid doing anything that could harm your case.

4.     We will help you identify, calculate, and claim all potential losses

If you do not take the time to speak with and hire a lawyer, you could end up leaving out several of your losses. Your losses are the negative effects that you have experienced due to taking Zantac, such as medical bills, lost wages, diminished quality of life, physical and chronic pain, loss of enjoyment of activities, and more. However, if you do not have an experienced legal professional by your side, you may not be aware of the true value of your losses and accept a settlement that is a lot less than what you are owed.

5.     We can help maximize the compensation you receive

As a consumer, it can be extremely challenging to go up against large and powerful corporations, such as Glaxo Laboratories or GlaxoSmithKLine, alone. That is why you should seriously consider hiring a product liability lawyer who has developed a reputation for standing up to large companies and demanding the maximum amount of financial recovery that their clients rightfully deserve.

6.     We will help you with the settlement negotiations process

Most of the time, before you ever make it to court, you will receive a settlement offer. This settlement offer may be offered by the company you are suing or their insurer. However, it is important to have a Philadelphia product liability attorney in your corner to review any offers you receive, determine whether or not they are fair, and help you secure a deal that seems reasonable based on your losses.

Without our assistance, you may be eager to take the first offer you receive, but it is critical to know that the first offer is almost always a low-ball offer. The reason for this is because the defendant and their insurance company know that you need the money to cover your medical bills and other expenses right away. Therefore, they hope that you are desperate enough to take the first offer and ultimately save them some money.

7.     We will represent you in court, if necessary

Although your product liability case may end in a settlement, some cases do go to trial. For example, if the defendant fails to cooperate and is unwilling to provide you with a fair and appropriate offer, our skilled attorneys will develop a strong legal strategy and prepare to represent you in court. This will require presenting evidence and convincing the judge or jury about how Zantac caused your cancer or other illnesses or injuries. However, it is important to know that the defendant will likely put up a tough fight, which is why you need a lawyer from our team who possesses the skills, tools, and resources to create a compelling argument that they cannot disprove.
