Heartburn, acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)—these are all names for a common condition that almost everyone experiences from time to time. The unpleasant sensation of stomach acid entering the esophagus can range from rare occurrences to a daily or even hourly issue, depending on underlying health conditions. People who suffer from GERD take antacids, which are designed to neutralize or reduce stomach acid and prevent it from rising into the esophagus.
Unfortunately, one of the most common and widely used antacids has been recalled by its manufacturers after it was found to contain high levels of NDMA, a carcinogen. The recalls were first initiated in fall 2019, and they’re still ongoing today. Both name brand Zantac and its generic equivalents, known as ranitidine, have been recalled by their manufacturers and pulled from store shelves.
The contaminant found in Zantac is the same contaminant found in blood pressure medications that were recalled throughout 2018. People who took that medication, called losartan, as well as Zantac may be at higher risk of certain types of cancer, including bladder, stomach, intestinal, and more.
People who previously relied on Zantac and its generic to treat their GERD symptoms have had to switch to other medications, as Zantac is no longer available to purchase until its safety and quality can be assured, per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s guidelines. If you or someone you love took Zantac and developed cancer, you may be eligible for compensation. The Nashville drug injury lawyers at Ponce Law are here to help.

Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS
My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!
The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
Out of nowhere… Come a car and she hit us head-on. I thought for a moment that my wife was going to die, you know… But we’re all good! I just needed to find somebody that would have our back… I chose Michael because he’s going to be upfront with ya, he will definitely have your back!
