Zantac Compensation: Do You Have a Claim?
Here’s what you need to know about potential Zantac compensation:
Zantac Cancer Risk: In late 2019, an independent lab found elevated levels of potentially cancer-causing NDMA in Zantac. The FDA confirmed these findings in early 2020. In a statement, the FDA said that levels of NDMA in Zantac and generic ranitidine are “unacceptably high.”
Lawsuits seeking Zantac compensation began to be filed around this time.
In April 2020, the FDA doubled down and issued a serious warning about potential Zantac cancer risk, requesting that all Zantac and ranitidine manufacturers stop selling the popular heartburn drugs. Patients taking over-the-counter Zantac were advised to stop taking Zantac immediately and those taking prescription Zantac were encouraged to contact their prescribing doctor immediately. Those taking Zantac are encouraged to seek Zantac alternatives.
At the same time, consumers and attorneys continued taking legal action, seeking Zantac compensation for cancer potentially caused by the heartburn drug.
Hundreds of Zantac lawsuits have now been filed, alleging that NDMA-contaminated Zantac caused various types of cancer, including:
- Kidney cancer
- Stomach cancer
- Liver cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Lung cancer (if you’ve never smoked)
- Intestinal cancer
These lawsuits seek Zantac compensation related to cancer potentially caused by Zantac. In February 2020, a federal panel sent more than 100 Zantac lawsuits to the Southern District of Florida, where they are now consolidated into Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) proceedings.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, the federal MDL has limited the Zantac claims we can accept to bladder, esophageal, stomach, liver, and pancreatic cancers only. We understand that other cancers may be linked, but we are unfortunately unable to assist with these claims at this time due to evidence and recent court rulings.
