Nexium (esomeprazole) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2001 after being developed by AstraZeneca as a drug to combat acid reflux/heartburn symptoms.

The drug is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), a common class of drug that over the last decade has been found to carry dangerous, previously undisclosed side effects that include kidney failure and dementia.

Some of the other uncommon side effects include:

Allergic ReactionsChest Pain
Dark UrineFast Heartbeat
FeverParesthesia
Persistent Sore ThroatSevere Stomach Pain
Unusual Bruising/BleedingYellowing of Eyes/Skin

Do Nexium Victims File Dangerous Drug Lawsuits Against AstraZeneca?

Nexium is frequently ranked as one of the top ten grossing drugs in the United States.

With this popularity, the drug reaches millions of users potentially unknowingly subjecting those consumers to dangerous side effects.

However, as is common with many dangerous drug situations, not all victims have come forward to file a lawsuit.

Many victims are fearful that they will have no chance at winning a case against a major pharmaceutical company and will end up without a settlement but burdened with crippling legal costs that will leave them worse off than before.

Why Should You File A Nexium Dangerous Drug Lawsuit?

Our legal team wants to make the legal process as comfortable as possible for our clients. In being driven by this goal, we have sat down with past clients and discussed what fears they had as they began pursuing legal action.

In understanding what fears are most common in dangerous drug victims who are considering taking legal action, we have compiled this list detailing the top reasons to file and why as a victim, pursuing legal action should quell your fears rather than stoke them.

1. AstraZeneca’s Recent Legal TroublesAstraZeneca has been the subject of several lawsuits in recent years which has resulted in two settlements totaling nearly $28 million paid. The nature of these lawsuits – regarding illegal practices regarding Nexium – gives consumers a substantial legal basis in filing against AstraZeneca.

2. Medical DataMuch of the time, drug lawsuits are based on debated medical claims that a drug manufacturer can attempt to effectively fight in court. However, in the case of Nexium, there have been multiple in-depth studies conducted on PPIs over the past decade that have all yielded similar results indicating serious health risks associated with Nexium.

3. Recover Financial Damage: Depending on the nature of your health complication, an undue financial burden from medical expenses, missed work, etc. was likely placed on you. Filing a dangerous drug lawsuit allows you to recover the financial damages your Nexium injuries caused.

4. Wrongful Death: Health complications associated with Nexium can be life-threatening if not treated quickly enough. In the unfortunate event that a loved one passed away due to Nexium related complications, surviving estate members can file a lawsuit on their behalf to recover financial and at times, punitive damages to compensate for the stability lost with your loved done.

5. No-Fee Guarantee: By far the number one reason victims don’t come forward is the fear of being hit with huge legal expenses and being financial worse off than before they pursued legal action. To defeat this fear, we guarantee to our clients in writing that you will never pay a single fee unless you win a settlement in your case. You will never be left worse off after legal action than before.
