ZANTAC LAWSUIT STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

About The Zantac Lawsuit Statute of Limitations

Timing is crucial when filing a dangerous drug lawsuit, especially when it involves a medication that can cause cancer like Zantac (Ranitidine).

A statute of limitations is a law passed by a legislative body to set the maximum time after an event within which legal proceedings may be initiated.

The statute of limitations for Zantac lawsuits varies by state, ranging from one year to six years, with most states being two or three years.

Below we will outline how much time you have in each US state between when injuries occurred from Zantac use, usually a cancer diagnosis, and when you are able to file a lawsuit against the drug’s manufacturers.

Since the FDA recall on Zantac (Ranitidine) occurred relatively recently on April 1, 2020, most cases should still be within the statute of limitations.

If that is not the case, your lawsuit could still be tried in multidistrict litigation (MDL).

Other exceptions may also be possible.

Certain exceptions to these rules vary upon state, so it is essential to contact a personal injury lawyer to help guide you through the litigation process for a Zantac lawsuit.
