The manufacturer of Prilosec is set to receive a large financial settlement due to a class action lawsuit filed by consumers claiming Prilosec caused them harm. Research conducted by the FDA indicates that Prilosec, an over-the-counter drug used to treat acid reflux and heartburn, poses many life-threatening side effects and is vastly overused. Such consumers may have valid grounds for a Prilosec injury lawsuit. According to FDA data, Prilosec-related deaths have increased over the past two years, with almost one in five patients suffering from a serious risk of death as a result of using Prilosec. Moreover, the recent news regarding tainted Prilosec drugs causing deaths has also raised questions about the safety of this drug.

A lawyer who represents a consumer who has suffered from a Prilosec related injury can help you prepare your case.

Consumer compensation claims for this type of injury can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and more. With so many people filing Prilosec related lawsuits, attorneys have seen a significant increase in cases brought forth claiming Prilosec-related kidney diseases. Such kidney disease lawsuits can lead to huge monetary awards.

There are several steps you can take to prepare your own case for a successful Prilosec injury lawsuit. The first step is to obtain a copy of your medical history, including all relevant testing results. Next, get a copy of your prescriptions for at least three months before you expect symptoms of kidney failure to appear. You should also keep track of any medication that might cause kidney failure such as anti-anxiety pills, beta blockers, estrogen replacement therapy, and diet pills such as caffeine. When taking Prilosec or undergoing treatments for kidney disease, it is crucial to follow the directions exactly. If at any point you experience any negative side effects, discontinue treatments immediately.

If you do feel that you have a case, there are a few things you should know.

First, if you are currently being treated for a certain kind of kidney disease, you are not eligible to file a Prilosec or kidney failure lawsuit on its own. Only if your disease has progressed beyond the point where treatment can be afforded, and then only after a medical specialist has deemed that your kidneys are permanently damaged, can you file a claim for compensation. This is important to remember because some people whose kidneys have been damaged as a result of other factors (such as a heart attack) are able to sue for their losses even if they have already reached the point where they will no longer be able to live on their own. This is due to the fact that damage to the kidneys can sometimes be life threatening.

Second, although Prilosec or kidney failure lawsuits are a legal process, you shouldn’t allow yourself to be bullied by the medical establishment. In fact, there are people who have used these products to gain back at the expense of those with real conditions. If you are not sure whether or not you might qualify, ask your lawyer to review your case. They are often willing to guide you in the right direction. Also, the medical establishment may be willing to provide you with more information in order to show you which cases they are most likely to accept over others.

The last point to keep in mind is that a Prilosec or kidney failure lawsuit is usually not successful unless the doctor or hospital involved is found to be negligent. This means that even if you feel that you are a victim of the medical industry’s negligence, it can be difficult to prove liability. Therefore, it may be in your best interests to settle out of court rather than risk losing a tremendous amount of money. Before deciding to proceed with a legal case, it is important to speak to a competent attorney. Not only will this ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve, but also give you peace of mind that you have taken the right steps to secure your rights.
