Valsartan Lawsuit

Patients who have taken Valsartan and have been diagnosed with cancer, as a result, should read on to learn more about how they can hold the drug makers accountable.

Valsartan has been recalled due to possible nitrosamine contamination. Nitrosamines can cause tumors in the liver and other organs in lab animals and are thought to be carcinogenic in humans as well. It is believed that these blood pressure drugs were tainted during flawed manufacturing processes. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration stated that these contaminants “are of special concern to global regulators because, unlike most impurities in drugs, they have the potential to cause harm at very low levels.”

The recalls began in July when the FDA found that some Valsartan products contained a potentially cancer-causing chemical. European regulators had already made the same discovery. The substance can form during manufacturing if the chemical reactions used to make the drug are not carefully controlled and monitored, the FDA said.

Valsartan is made by Chinese manufacturer Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals. These recalls are a product of greater FDA scrutiny of foreign drug imports, but FDA warnings alone will not ensure safe medications. In a culture where the profit motive exists, drug companies must be held accountable to cutting corners and sacrificing consumer safety.

Valsartan Cancer Lawsuits Filed Over These Possible Side Effects

In addition to cancer, sources say these drugs carry the risk of:

  • kidney failure,
  • liver failure,
  • a lowered white blood cell count, and
  • angioedema, the swelling of certain tissues in the body.

This medication has been associated with birth defects and should not be taken by pregnant women for this reason. (Consult your physician for more information.)

Valsartan Lawsuit FAQs

  • What Do Valsartan Cancer Lawsuits Allege?

    Patients who were prescribed Valsartan claim that drug manufacturers willfully disregarded required safety procedures at the plant where contamination occurred. The contaminant was undiscovered for years until revealed by random testing.

  • Who Can File a Valsartan Lawsuit?

    Anyone who has taken Valsartan as prescribed by their doctor and has since been diagnosed with cancer might be eligible to pursue compensation from Valsartan manufacturers. A lawsuit verdict or settlement may provide compensation for financial and non-financial losses caused by taking these products.

  • What Can I Get in Valsartan Lawsuit?

    • Patients who file a lawsuit could potentially get the following if the case is resolved successfully:
    • Compensation for pain and suffering
    • Compensation for medical bills
    • Lost wages and other financial losses
    • Funeral expenses in the event of a loved one’s death
  • Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

    While it is possible for individuals whom these products might have injured to go it alone without knowledgeable representation, those who do so run the risk of receiving an unfair settlement — if they get anything at all. Because drug makers have large amounts of money to spend on lawyers, going up against them as an individual can be intimidating and difficult. With an experienced attorney and a law firm with massive resources on your side, you can have the best chance to stand up to these large companies and optimize your chances of being fully compensated.
