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 & Sanders 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.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
