“Will I Have to Go to Court for My Zantac Cancer Claim or Lawsuit?”
With thousands of Zantac cancer claims being filed, many claimants are concerned that they might have to go to court to recover damages. Many of our clients ask us, “Will I have to go to court for my Zantac cancer lawsuit?”
The short answer is that, it depends, but probably not.
About 90% of civil cases are settled before they make it to trial. While it is unlikely that Zantac claims will need to be litigated, there is no guarantee. Furthermore, if a claimant decides to litigate, there is no way to ensure that the verdict amount will exceed the settlement.
For these reasons, it is important to hire an experienced product liability attorney. Our firm can help you navigate the complicated process of filing a Zantac claim. At Riddle and Brantley, we understand how daunting a defective drug claim can be. Our Zantac cancer lawyers can help investigate your claim and walk you through the entire process from start to finish.
If you’re wondering “Will I have to go to court for my Zantac cancer claim?”, the answer is that no, you probably won’t have to. Filing a claim for damages due to cancer potentially caused by Zantac is relatively straightforward, and our experienced injury attorneys can help.
In April 2020 the FDA released a statement requiring all drug manufactures to remove ranitidine from their heartburn medications. According to the FDA, Zantac and ranitidine may be contaminated with NDMA, which may cause cancer.
Many people took this over-the-counter medication to prevent and alleviate the side effects of acid reflux or heartburn.

What is a Mass Tort?
Both class actions and mass tort claims involve a specific group of individuals that share common injuries. These suits allow multiple people with similar damages to join a lawsuit. The main difference between class actions and mass torts is how the claim is treated.
For class actions, the claims are not considered individually, and all claimants will split the settlement or verdict award.
On the other hand, in mass torts, each individual’s claim and damages are evaluated independently. This means that mass torts claimants will obtain a judgement based on their specific injuries. Furthermore, if a claimant does not agree to his or her particular settlement, then they have the opportunity to go to court.
Currently, the Zantac claims are being filed as mass tort claims. These claims are a favorable way to file against drug companies because each individual person may react differently to contaminated drugs. Additionally, each claimant’s injury and damages will be assessed on an independent basis.
In other words, mass tort claimants do not split the settlement or verdict. Instead, every Zantac claimant will be entitled to their own recovery, if a settlement is reached or Zantac manufacturers are found liable. If a plaintiff is unhappy with their attributed settlement, then they have the option to litigate their claim.
Practically speaking, this means that for most claimants, the answer to the question, “Do I have to go to court for a Zantac lawsuit?” is no, at least probably not.
