Louisiana Valsartan Lawsuit Attorneys
Valsartan is a medication commonly used to treat high blood pressure. Lawsuits currently filed against Valsartan manufacturers allege that several batches of this drug were contaminated with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a known carcinogen.
If you’ve taken Valsartan for at least one year between 2014 and 2018, and you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, now is the time to pursue legal action against the drug’s manufacturer and any other potentially liable parties.
Dudley DeBosier is accepting calls about potential lawsuits, and we’re committed to getting you the compensation you’re entitled to. Call us today for a free consultation.
Contaminated Valsartan Presents Serious Health Risks
The batches of Valsartan under scrutiny were sold from 2014 to 2018. They were produced by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals and Zhejiang Tianyu in China and Hetero Labs Limited in India. The presence of NDMA in Valsartan tablets raises serious health issues for those who took these medications.
NDMA is widely known to cause cancer. The forms of cancer most closely linked with contaminated Valsartan are:
- Liver cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Colorectal cancer
These tainted medications have been recalled, but for users of contaminated Valsartan, the damage has likely already been done. If you took Valsartan between 2014 to 2018 and you’ve since been diagnosed with cancer, you might be eligible for compensation.
Why File a Valsartan Lawsuit?
By taking legal action through a Valsartan lawsuit, you can demand payment for the many cancer-related costs you face. Cancer is debilitating, painful, and incredibly expensive. We believe the makers of contaminated Valsartan should pay for the costs facing consumers who trusted this drug to be safe.
In a drug injury claim, you can demand payment for:
- Past and future medical bills related to cancer
- Any income lost due to your condition
- Any other economic damages you’ve experienced related to Valsartan
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
In some cases, punitive damages are awarded to plaintiffs who file drug injury lawsuits. At Dudley DeBosier, we review cases with our clients to help them determine how much they should demand in a claim.
