“What compensation is available in a Zantac lawsuit?”
In this blog post, we’ll review the claims against Zantac and discuss what kind of compensation victims might anticipate in a potential Zantac lawsuit or cancer claim.
What Kind of Zantac Compensation is Available?
IMPORTANT: There are never any guarantees concerning the outcome of a potential claim or lawsuit. Every case is different and the outcome / potential compensation will depend on the unique facts and circumstances of the case.
If a particular case with multiple plaintiffs settles, how much compensation you could potentially receive in a Zantac cancer lawsuit depends on a variety of factors, such as:
- the final amount of the settlement
- the severity of each claimant’s damages
- other legal factors
In anticipating potential Zantac cancer lawsuit settlements, we can also look to history.
Recent, high-profile dangerous drug settlements include:
Infant’s Tylenol (2020)
In January of 2020, Johnson and Johnson agreed to settle with a class-action claimants for a total of $6.3 million in damages. The settlement was based on the marketing materials being used for Infant’s Tylenol being misleading to consumers to believe that the product was specially formulated for infants, when in fact, the product contained no less acetaminophen than Children’s Tylenol.
In 2019, a judge awarded $8 billion in punitive damages to plaintiffs who claimed that Johnson & Johnson illegally marketed and sold the drug Risperdal, an anti-psychotic drug, which also caused the growth of female breast tissue in boys.
How much each claimant received in each of these cases depended on a variety of factors such as the extent of their individual damages and other factors, however, these are just some of the types of settlement packages that may be achieved in dangerous drug cases where individuals are subject to undue harm.
This alleged harm can be caused by the companies that market and manufacture drugs with dangerous side-effects or misleading claims.

“How Much Compensation in a Zantac Lawsuit Can I Expect to Receive?”

- Total amount of the settlement
- Severity of individual damages
- Proof of individual damages
Individuals have received a wide variety of compensation amounts in dangerous drug case settlements.
In addition to the examples listed above, in 2000, the American Home Products Corporation agreed to pay $3.75 billion in damages to customers who were injured by taking the popular diet pill combination fen-phen.
Individual claimants who had sustained a heart valve injury in these cases qualified for as much as $1.5 million in settlement compensation.
