Most Zantac cancer lawyers will handle cases against the drug company deemed liable based on contingency. Contingency means that you won’t need to pay your lawyer upfront. You will only need to pay the lawyer if your case is successful. Typically, this is common for law firms in the United States when handling personal injury cases.
By working with a law firm that utilizes a contingency basis, there is no need for paying out of pocket. Instead, you will only need to pay for the services provided if your Zantac attorney is successful in your claim and you receive the desired compensation.
But what if your Zantac lawyer does not reach a settlement agreement, and you don’t collect any damages for your injuries? If this is the case, you will likely not need to pay them any fees, ultimately meaning that the cost of hiring a Zantac attorney will depend on your settlement.
Zanes Law Zantac lawyers don’t charge unless they win the case, but every law firm is different. The details regarding payment for a claim will come down to the agreements made beforehand.
A Zantac Attorney Is Affordable
The legal process should move forward without you having to pay anything, assuming you recover compensation in your case. When you hire a Zantac attorney, it will cost you nothing upfront.
After the settlement agreement is signed or the verdict announced in court, the liable party will send your attorney a check for the money they owe. Your law firm will cash the check, take out their fees, and then send you the remaining amount.
Why You Need a Zantac Attorney
When hiring an attorney for a Zantac lawsuit, it’s important to ensure that you have an eligible case. Meaning sometimes liable parties in Zantac lawsuits can be the sole reason a certain case could be eligible. However, some requirements must be met.
Some of the various reasons why you may be looking to file a lawsuit and hire a Zantac attorney include:
- A failure on the part of the drug manufacturers
- Medical professionals who have prescribed the drug due to its safety
- Professionals in any field who didn’t warn patients about the side effects or safety of this drug
Participating in Multidistrict Litigation May Have Benefits
Many people who file grievances against Zantac will likely participate in the multidistrict litigation (MDL) already underway. MDL 2924 already includes 140 cases as of February 2020, according to the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation. This tort alleges that high levels of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in Zantac caused clients to develop cancer or other serious health complications.
This multidistrict litigation (MDL) is expected to grow quickly and exponentially as other parties join or file their lawsuits. Hundreds of claimants are preparing their cases or have already filed, according to court documents outlining the details of MDL 2924.
Participating in MDL has several advantages, but one of the leading benefits relates to cost. In MDL, the expenses of proving the case are shared between the parties involved. These torts help alleviate the costs of taking on a large corporation. Establishing the link between ranitidine and cancer may cost thousands of dollars, including paying researchers, medical experts, and others to travel to court and testify. These costs will likely come from any court awards given at the court’s conclusion.
Your Attorney Should Be Open About Payment
Do not shy away from discussing costs during your initial consultation with a prospective attorney. A legal professional who reviews these cases regularly should be open about their pricing, common expenses, and how they handle payment.
Unlike other types of law, personal injury attorneys (including dangerous and defective drug lawyers) generally do not require any upfront payment or retainer. Instead, they have an agreement that allows them to take a percentage of your award when your case settles or is ruled on by a judge.
The percentage the law firm receives will be included in the agreement you made with your attorney. Do not sign any contracts if it does not mention payment details.

What Types of Compensation Could You Collect from Your Zantac Lawsuit?
When filing a Zantac lawsuit, you can collect various forms of compensation. Of course, no generally ruled settlement amount is ever agreed upon because settlement amounts for each case are based upon different factors that include:
- The injuries you have sustained
- How liable the other party is
- Zantac use
- The extent of any injuries that were previously diagnosed
- The losses that were sustained due to the injuries sustained from Zantac
Once these factors are calculated, you can add your damages together. These damages include the following:
- All medical bills: Medical bills can include treatment, ongoing therapy, outpatient treatments, or surgeries.
- Pain and suffering: This damage is sometimes hard to calculate. However, it will attempt to compensate for devastating levels of pain and suffering. This pain and suffering can be due to ongoing treatments or from Zantac.
- Lost income: Sometimes, patients cannot work because of the side effects of treatments or Zantac. If you have suffered major losses in income, these can be compensated for in some cases.
- Wrongful death: Some cases, unfortunately, come to a horrible ending, such as wrongful death or fatal injuries. Wrongful death can occur in some cases, and it can be due to overuse of this drug or a lack of knowledge of its effects.
