Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuits in 2018 – File NOW
Nexium and Prilosec are proton pump inhibitor medications taken regularly by millions of Americans each day. While there’s no disputing their efficacy, these medications have been shown to cause deleterious side effects to organs such as the kidneys and heart. There isn’t a lot of information in the media regarding the dangers of these medications, so hundreds of thousands take them regularly, only to discover years later that the drug they had come to depend upon to offer reliable relief for heartburn and GERD has slowly been killing them.

Proton Pump Inhibitor Lawsuit Update
It is estimated that the number of PPI lawsuits grew by an unprecedented 800 percent between January and April 2018, perhaps due to the awareness that’s now hitting the general public. As of August 2018, there are a little over 4,500 lawsuits targeting proton pump inhibitors waiting to be heart in federal court. The judge responsible for PPI MDL’s has set September 21st 2020 as the date for the first of several bellwether trials which are essentially test proceedings in order to get a feel of the validity as well as response garnered from the jury, defendants and plaintiff. In addition, bellwether trials may inform the value of future cases in this category.

Some of the accusations fronted by litigators towards companies like AstraZeneca include:
