Valsartan Litigation and MDL

Valsartan Litigation and MDL

In July 2018, the United States Food and Drug Administration alerted health case 

professionals and patients of a voluntary recall of several drug products containing the active ingredient valsartan due to the discovery that it contained N-NitrosoDiMethylamine (NDMA).

Valsartan is an oral blood pressure medication that has been linked to causing cancer, it is also given to patients who have experienced heart attacks or heart failure. Valsartan is an angiotensin II receptor antigen; this is a class of medication that works by blocking the action of certain natural substances that tighten the blood vessels. This ultimately relaxes the blood vessels and puts less strain on the heart.  

Lawsuits allege that from 2012 to 2018 batches of Valsartan were contaminated with NDMA, a probable carcinogen. The presence of NDMA, according to the FDA, may increase the risk of developing certain kinds of cancer including liver, kidney, colorectal, intestinal, stomach, bladder, and/or pancreas. These lawsuits also allege that drug manufacturers willfully disregarded the required safety procedures at the plant where the contamination occurred. This contaminant went undiscovered for years until it was revealed by random testing. 

If you or someone you know have received a diagnosis after taking Valsartan, it is important to contact Oliver Law Office to evaluate your case. Because drug manufacturers have large amounts of money to spend on attorneys and law firms with large resources, it is often difficult or intimidating to bring suit alone.

I need to tell you how great it was for Attorney Jami Oliver to handle my case. First she listened to what the situation that I was facing.... She educated me on what the chances were as far as possible success as well as pitfalls that could disrupt that success. She was very honest as far as letting us know the chances of winning versus losing. It was a difficult case, and she still educated us as to what our options were and how the process worked. She instructed us on what to say as well as what not to say. Sometimes you need to talk and other times not talk. She believed in us and fought for us. You can't go wrong to hire her the staff that compliments her strengths. John Zimmerread more
