How Do I Pursue a Valsartan Recall Class Action Claim?
In mid-2018, a number of different generic drug makers issued valsartan recalls, indicating that pills distributed in recent years may have contained impurities from the manufacturing process that increase the risk of cancer. As a result, a number of valsartan class action lawsuits and individual cancer claims are being pursued by individuals nationwide.
While class actions over the valsartan recall seek damages for the price paid for the pills, future medical monitoring and other damages, individuals diagnosed with cancer due to side effects of valsartan NDMA contamination may be entitled to substantially greater financial compensation.

Class Action vs. Injury Lawsuit for valsartan
Given the large number of claims likely to be pursued by individual throughout the United States diagnosed with cancer from Valsartan, it is common for individual injury claims to be confused with class action lawsuits. However, there are important differences.
The class action lawsuits over valsartan filed to date have dealt with compensating those who have not been injured or diagnosed with cancer, since they paid for contaminated drugs and may require medical monitoring in the future.
However, valsartan cancer lawsuits will be pursued as individual actions, since the impact of each diagnosis will be different. While the cases may eventually be consolidated or coordinated during discovery and litigation, each claim will remain a separate lawsuit and the individual circumstances will be considered as part of any valsartan settlement.
