Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) Attorneys El Paso & Las Cruces
Table of Contents
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) lawyers in Las Cruces & El Paso are skilled mass torts attorneys who work tirelessly to pursue the manufacturers of popular PPI drugs Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid, Protonix, and other brands for failing to warn patients and medical professionals about the possible risks of their drugs causing kidney disease, kidney injury, kidney failure, and acute interstitial nephritis as the companies became aware of them.
An estimated 15 million Americans use prescription PPIs, which does not include the number of people who purchase the non-prescription, over-the-counter versions, including Prilosec OTC, Nexium 24HR, and Prevacid 24HR.
Our New Mexico and Texas PPI lawyers are providing the legal representation our residents need to hold AstraZeneca, Takeda, and Pfizer, along with others involved in the manufacturing of these drugs for failing to adequately warn about the risk of kidney injuries.
Which Drugs are Being Named in the New Mexico and Texas PPI Lawsuits?
Many brand name and generic PPI drugs are being named in lawsuits against multiple manufacturers.
|Brand Name||Generic Name||Drug Company/Manufacturer|
|Prilosec OTC||omeprazole||Proctor & Gamble|
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our PPI attorneys in Las Cruces & El Paso will argue that the manufacturers did not do enough to warn patients and medical professionals about the possible risks of these drugs, even though they became aware of them at different stages.
Unfortunately, the lawsuits against AstraZeneca allege the pharmaceutical company that manufactures Prilosec knew of kidney risks for at least ten years before warning the public.
