Lawsuit Alleges Medication Caused Kidney Damage

March 6, 2017 | Product Liability

Over the years, hundreds of medications have been prescribed to treat illness, only to cause serious or life-threatening side effects. Despite the dangers, some pharmaceutical companies continue to sell their medications, even hiding information to get FDA approval. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of adverse side effects due to negligence or failure to warn by a drug manufacturer, lawsuit funding may give you financial stability during a pending lawsuit.

A California woman alleges medication prescribed to treat heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease caused kidney damage.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs allege that in 2016, the woman suffered physical injuries, including damages to her kidney, due to taking Prilosec. The woman alleges that as a result she required a kidney transplant because of proton pump inhibitor use. The plaintiffs allege that The Procter & Gamble Co., Astrazeneca Pharmaceuticals LP and Does 1 to 50 were negligent for failing to provide appropriate warnings against the continued use of the drug and failing to appropriately warn the woman’s health care providers about the side effects and risks.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek damages up to $5 million.

Litigation Funding Corporation understands that the litigation process from a defective drug lawsuit can take years to settle, as it is very difficult to compete with a major pharmaceutical company that is can afford to wait.
