Who Can File a Lawsuit for Valsartan Related Cancer?

Getting Legal Help for a Cancer Diagnosis after the FDA's High Blood Pressure Medication Recall

December 04, 2019 - Dozens of high blood pressure medication recall lawsuits have already been filed against manufacturers of certain generic high blood pressure medications—losartan, irbesartan, valsartan, amlodipine and hydrochlorothiazide. Many of these high blood pressure medications have been found to be tainted with NDMA, NDEA, NMBA and DMF—all known carcinogens, which can potentially cause cancer and liver issues. The FDA is overseeing the widening recall for drugs which may have been taken by millions of Americans. One valsartan lawyer is attempting to combine about 50 valsartan lawsuits with over half of those alleging they were diagnosed with cancer after using the recalled blood pressure medications.

Companies named in the lawsuits include Teva Pharmaceuticals, Aurobindo Pharma USA, Mylan NV, and CVS Health Corporation, along with many others. One plaintiff, Priscilla Kleinman, alleges there is more NDMA in a single contaminated pill than a person would likely consume in a month or more, otherwise. Another valsartan lawyer noted that “one pill is the equivalent of consuming 30 pounds of bacon.” The FDA believes that for every 8,000 consumers who took valsartan, there may be at least one additional cancer diagnosis. 

It is possible there will be class action lawsuits for the high blood pressure medications which were tainted with NDMA, NDEA, NMBA and DMF, as well as individual personal injury lawsuits related to the high blood pressure medication recall. A valsartan class action lawsuit was filed in April in New Jersey on behalf of those who took the tainted medications but may not exhibit symptoms for many years.

High Blood Pressure Medication Recall Lawsuits - The lawsuits thus far revolve around the voluntarily recalled blood pressure and heart medications containing valsartan, losartan, amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, and irbesartan which were manufactured in India and China. There is a long list of manufacturers, medications and lot numbers involved in the high blood pressure medication recalls. A complete list can be found on the FDA website at: https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drug-safety-and-availability/search-list-recalled-angiotensin-ii-receptor-blockers-arbs-including-valsartan-losartan-and.

Potential injuries include various types of cancers, tumors and liver damage. Those taking any of these generic drugs which are listed on the FDA website may be entitled to past and future medical expenses, loss of income (past, present, and future), pain and suffering, and other economic losses experienced as a result of taking the recalled high blood pressure medications.

How a Valsartan Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help - Losartan cancer lawsuits, amlodipine cancer lawsuits, hydrochlorothiazide cancer lawsuits, irbesartan cancer lawsuits, and valsartan cancer lawsuits are currently being filed, with many more high blood pressure medication lawsuits expected to be filed in the coming years. It is imperative that you have an experienced personal injury lawyer who can file a losartan lawsuit on your behalf. It is expected there will be losartan class action lawsuits, irbesartan class action lawsuits and valsartan class action lawsuits in the near future.  If you have been harmed by one of the recalled high blood pressure medications, contact a personal injury attorney today.
