Recover From Your Injuries From Using Valsartan
In 2018, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declared that Valsartan, a drug used for hypertension, has a side effect of causing a wide array of cancer. As a result, the FDA issued a recall letter in 2018 announcing this deadly side effect. If you believe you have suffered from Valsartan, you deserve to seek compensation for your injuries.

What Valsartan Can Do To You
Valsartan, although it was supposed to help with hypertension, contained large amounts of carcinogens that can cause a person to suffer cancer in many forms such as:
- Stomach cancer
- Bowel cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Colon cancer
Because the liver is the primary organ in contact with these carcinogens, one may also experience liver failure if they took this drug.
Cancer, as well as liver failure, is very costly to a victim, as well as their family. The damages come in the form of medicine costs, hospital stays, chemotherapy, lost income, and pain and suffering, just to name a few. The first settlement offer commonly does not cover the cost of everything you may experience from the side effects of the drug.
