Zofran Class Action vs. Individual Birth Defect Lawsuit
Most of the injury claims being pursued by the lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. will be handled as individual product liability lawsuits, as opposed to being part of a Zofran class action.
Since the facts and circumstances surrounding each child’s birth defect will be different, resulting in different impacts on their overall health and quality of life, each Zofran injury lawsuit can not be pursued through one class representative. Therefore, individual causation and damages must be established for each child born with a birth defect before obtaining a Zofran settlement or financial compensation for the child.
With a growing number of lawsuits continue to be filed in courts throughout the United States, consolidated pretrial proceedings were established in the federal court system in October 2015, to reduce duplicative discovery into common issues in the cases, avoid contradictory pretrial rulings from different Courts and to serve the convenience of the parties, witnesses and the courts.
It is expected that coordinated discovery will continue throughout 2017, mainly focused on general causation and other issues that are common to all claims.
While such mass tort litigation, where a large number of lawsuits are being filed by users of the same medication that allege similar injuries, are often confused with a class action for Zofran, there are important differences and each claim remains an individual lawsuit.
