Proton pump inhibitors are among the most commonly prescribed medications and are generally thought to be effective at treating chronic heartburn and acid reflux. However, there is also evidence that could link the popular medications to serious renal complications. If you suffered kidney failure, kidney disease, or another serious renal complication while taking the drug, you may be eligible to hold the manufacturer responsible.

Proton Pump Inhibitors and MDL 2789
Doctors are often quick to prescribe proton pump inhibitors to relieve chronic heartburn, acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Some are even available over the counter in smaller doses and designed for temporary use. However, a study published in Laryngoscope Investigative Otolaryngology (LIO) and anecdotal evidence have linked these widely prescribed medications to a number of possible side effects. Among the most serious include:
- Acute interstitial nephritis
- Chronic kidney disease
- Renal failure
- Acute kidney injury
There is a mass tort pending that centers on these claims. The multidistrict litigation, known as MDL 2789, is the second-largest MDL currently underway, with more than 13,060 cases pending as of August 2019. The drugs are not only widely used, but it seems serious complications also occur frequently.
MDL 2789 focuses on several brands of proton pump inhibitor medications and names a number of drug manufacturers. Proton pump inhibitors include:
- Nexium 24HR
- Prilosec OTC
- Prevacid 24HR

Recoverable Damages in a Proton Pump Inhibitors Lawsuit
We are passionate about ensuring negligent corporations pay for their actions. We will not only pursue the payout you need and deserve, but also seek to hold the drug manufacturer liable for putting you and thousands of others at risk. There are allegations that these drug companies could have known about the risk of serious side effects years before anyone prescribed the medication received a warning. If this is true, punitive damages may be likely.
We can help you pursue compensatory damages that may include:
- Medical treatment and care related to the medication side effects
- Ongoing and future care costs related to the medical condition you developed
- Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
- Related out-of-pocket costs
- Pain and suffering damages
- Emotional distress
- Legal fees
If a member of your family passed away because of kidney disease or another serious side effect of a proton pump inhibitor, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit, either as a part of the MDL or on your own. We can help you through this process and pursue justice for your loved one.
