Since 1981 Zantac also known as Ranitidine is a medication used to treat and prevent heartburn. In September 2019, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that there were extremely high levels of NDMA in the product. NDMA is a harmful carcinogen that has been associated with causing various diseases. The FDA has issued a recall to patients and health care professionals regarding the continued prescription of ranitidine tablets due to the medication producing excessive levels of NDMA that are unsuitable for consumer use and it’s ability to be easily absorbed into the patient’s tissues.

Zantac or generic ranitidine may place patients at an increased risk for cancers such as the following:

  • Stomach
  • Liver
  • Small Intestine
  • Colorectal
  • Bladder
  • Pancreatic
  • Esophageal
  • Kidney
  • Prostate(<65)
  • Leukemia
  • Non-Hodgkin's Lympoma
  • Multiple Myeloma

At Osborne & Francis Law Firm, PLLC, our attorneys represent clients throughout the U.S. who have been injured or have encountered medical complications because of brand name and generic defective drugs. It takes a lawyer with extensive resources, knowledge and litigation skills to battle a major corporation, especially a pharmaceutical company. Drug companies employ resourceful and skilled defense teams and have vast funds on reserve to fight against lawsuits in attempts to avoid responsibility for their negligence and disregard for public safety.

So you've been in a car accident. What happens next? There are many things that you should do but here are the three most important:

Number One: See a doctor immediately. 

A broken bone is easy to see, but some injuries are not. The most common injuries from car accidents happen in the neck, back, or head. The only way to diagnose and treat them is by seeing a doctor. A doctor can help ease the pain, provide medication, reassure you of how your injury may impact your daily life, and tell you what not to do to make it worse.

A visit to the doctor can also give you legally protected time off to recover and rest your body after an accident, and it documents and provides the evidence you may need for your case. Even a five-mile-per-hour car accident can cause a serious injury. So whether you've had a severe accident or a minor collision, see a doctor. And if you don't have medical insurance, let us know and we'll make sure that you receive the proper care. 

Number Two: Write everything down.

Even if it seems small, during times of stress or injury it is common to forget the little details. Make sure you keep note of the pain that you're in. With neck, back, and head injuries, sometimes simple activities such as walking up the stairs or picking up a toddler may cause severe pain. 

You may not be sleeping well at night. Documenting how much you sleep and how often you wake up due to pain is also very important. And lastly, if you have any cuts or bruises, take daily photos as you heal. This will provide visual evidence of the injuries that you've suffered. 

Number Three: Do not speak to an insurance company until you've spoken to a lawyer.

Please understand that the insurance adjuster works for a billion-dollar corporation and not for you. Their interests are solely for their insurance company, and their goal is to provide you with the least amount of financial settlement as quickly as possible. When you do speak with them, remember they will record the conversation. Why do they do this? Because they've been trained to ask questions that may confuse you. So talk to us before you talk to them. 

So remember: See a doctor, document everything, and call us before calling the insurance company for your free private consultation. We are here for you. Real tough lawyers fighting real tough issues.

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.
