In September 2019, an online pharmacy called Valisure alerted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to the presence of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in Zantac. A probable human carcinogen, NDMA is found naturally in many substances and is safe in low levels. However, certain batches of Zantac contained dangerously high levels that could lead to the development of cancer. In response to this report, the FDA issued a recall for Zantac in April 2020.
How Do You Qualify for a Zantac Lawsuit?
To qualify for a Vermont Zantac lawsuit, you will need to meet three criteria. First, you must have taken prescription or over-the-counter Zantac. Second, you must have been diagnosed with a cancer linked to NDMA, such as the following:
- Bladder cancer
- Liver cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Intestinal cancer
- Colorectal cancer
Finally, you must have taken Zantac for at least one year prior to your diagnosis. Speak to a Vermont Zantac lawyer at Estey & Bomberger, LLP to determine your eligibility.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Zantac Lawsuits in Vermont?
If you believe your cancer diagnosis is related to your Zantac use, it is important to act quickly. Vermont sets a statute of limitations, or filing deadline, for defective drug claims. You will need to file your Zantac lawsuit within three years of your cancer diagnosis to be eligible for compensation so speak with a Vermont Zantac lawsuit attorney as soon as possible after receiving a cancer diagnosis.
How Much Is a Zantac Lawsuit Worth?
Through a lawsuit against Zantac’s manufacturers, you can hold the company accountable for the financial, emotional, and physical harm you sustained due to the cancer diagnosis. You can recover compensation for your economic, or financial, damages and your non-economic damages, also known as pain and suffering. Common types of compensation available in Zantac claims include the following:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages and loss of future earnings
- Chronic pain and discomfort
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Depression and anxiety
- Fear, anger, and shock

Because damages vary based on each plaintiff’s losses, it can be difficult to calculate your case value without the help of an attorney. A Vermont Zantac lawyer from Estey & Bomberger, LLP can help you identify all possible avenues to compensation and accurately estimate your award.
