When too much stomach acid is produced, it can cause damage to the stomach and the esophageal lining. Nexium works by reducing the acid in your stomach to aid in the healing process of acid-related damage and stomach ulcers. It may also be prescribed to treat stomach infections or to reduce the risk of developing stomach ulcers.
Product liability lawsuits have been filed against the drug’s manufacturer claiming that the company failed to warn patients of the risks of using Nexium. Patients claim that they were not warned of the increased risk of kidney damage, stroke, and renal failure with long-term use of the drug. The lawsuits allege that the patients did not have proper warnings to make an informed decision whether to take the drug. As a result, the patient suffered serious injuries and damage after using Nexium to treat their medical condition.
As a result, plaintiffs are seeking compensation from the drug manufacturer for their injuries, losses, and damages. Examples of some of the types of damages patients are seeking compensation for in Nexium lawsuits include:
- Payment of all medical expenses related to the injury and damage caused by the drug;
- Reimbursement for lost wages and other out-of-pocket expenses;
- Compensation for the emotional distress, mental anguish, and physical pain caused by the injuries; and,
- Compensation for future financial damages and future pain and suffering damages.
