Valsartan Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Did you or a loved one take the drug Valsartan for high blood pressure? N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and/or N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) contamination may have occurred with some batches of Valsartan, exposing patients taking the drug to a known chemical carcinogen. Lawsuits are being filed against manufacturers of Valsartan who may have distributed tainted batches and sold the drug to consumers. Those affected by NDMA or NDEA found in Valsartan may experience liver damage, tumors and cancer.

NDMA is not commercially produced in the U.S., nor were batches of Valsartan tainted with the cancer-causing chemical made in the U.S. However, pharmaceutical companies may have purchased Valsartan that was produced by the Chinese pharmaceutical company Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals or India-based company Hetero Labs Limited, which had tainted batches containing NDMA. Even short-term use can have long-term side effects on the liver. These long-term effects can increase the risk of liver damage, cancer and tumors.

Symptoms of NDMA Overexposure

Those that have had overexposure to NDMA may experience immediate and long-term symptoms. Some of the known signs of NDMA exposure include:

  • Abdominal cramping and pain
  • Headaches
  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Fever
  • Enlarged and reduced function of the liver
  • Kidney and lung dysfunction
  • Jaundice

Over time, NDMA exposure can increase the risk for liver damage, cancer and tumors. In some cases, you may not have had immediate symptoms of NDMA overexposure but still may have long-term health problems resulting from taking tainted Valsartan.

If you believe you have been exposed to NDMA toxicity from taking Valsartan, you may be eligible to seek damages through a defective drug lawsuit. Contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law to schedule a free consultation to discuss your legal options. Victims of health problems caused by NDMA-tainted Valsartan may be able to make a claim for restitution to cover medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
