Filing a Proton Pump Inhibitor Gastric Cancer Lawsuit

If you think you are eligible for a PPI gastric cancer lawsuit, you should reach out to an attorney immediately. The civil lawsuit process is complex and requires severe attention to detail. Therefore, it is beneficial to have an experienced legal representative at your side to help you navigate the proceedings. Once you have hired a personal injury lawyer, you will need to gather evidence and determine liability for your injury. Your PPI lawyer will be willing and able to help you assess damages. Typically, in many bad drug lawsuits, the plaintiff will make a demand for both punitive and compensatory damages.

The PPI gastric cancer lawsuit will likely be settled outside of a courtroom. Thus, you would not have to attend a trial, but some cases may need to be settled inside the court. Lawsuits that are resolved through trials typically take longer to settle.

What is Gastric Cancer?

Gastric cancer is when malignant cells form in the stomach. Cancer can be in the main area of the stomach but is more commonly found where the stomach meets the esophagus or on the stomach lining. You may be in the early stages of gastric cancer if you experience the following chronic symptoms: stomach pain, vomiting, nausea, heartburn, or feeling bloated after eating. Obesity, smoking, and acid reflux are believed to increase the risk of acquiring gastric cancer.

Research has also found a link between proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and developing gastric cancer. If you’ve been injured as a result of taking proton pump inhibitors, call a PPI gastric cancer lawyer.

Do PPIs Cause Gastric Cancer?

Research shows that taking PPIs increases the risk of developing certain kidney and stomach injuries such as gastric cancer. With potent acid suppression, PPIs could induce changes in the gastric environment, including hypergastrinemia and enterochromaffin cell hyperplasia. Additionally, there is evidence suggesting PPIs could contribute to bacterial overgrowth in the stomach. Intuitively, PPIs worsen gastric atrophy and hence could increase the risk of gastric cancer.

Those who are most susceptible have underlying stomach issues such as gastric lesions or acid reflux. The main drugs being investigated for causing PPI gastric cancer are Prevacid, Dexilant, Protonix, Nexium, and Prilosec. If you have been injured from one of these or a different PPI, contact an attorney soon.
