Zantac cancer cases from around the country have been grouped into multidistrict litigation so that credible expert witness testimony can be shared among the cases. MDL is not the same as a class action and each plaintiff‘s trial is conducted separately. The first actual bellwether Zantac cancer trials could begin in early 2023 as long as the pandemic remains at bay. Lawyers estimate that the number of Zantac plaintiffs could grow to be tens of thousands because around 15 million people used Zantac every day up to the drug‘s recall on April 1, 2020. Lawyers may recommend seeking lump-sum monetary compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and other punitive damages. For most states, punitive damages are awarded by the jury and could be as high as ten times the actual monetary damages. The outcomes of the first few Zantac bellwether trial could convince Sanofi to seek to settle the cases rather than go through the costs and time consumption of taking each to trial. There has been no settlement talk to date.
