Zantac lawsuits have quickly become a major focus of mass tort lawyers in the United States. Since the 2020 recall, plaintiffs have lined up to pursue legal action against the makers of Zantac in courts across the country.
Due to the scope of these lawsuits, the courts have consolidated Zantac lawsuits in multidistrict litigation. Discovery is underway, and a major part of the discovery process involves medical record retrieval. Although the courts have appointed a single provider as the official record retrieval partner in Zantac cases, you can avoid agonizing delays in document retrieval by going with National Record Retrieval instead.
Zantac laws have been making their way through the court system since the April 2020 recall. However, only recently has momentum picked up in the multidistrict litigation. Currently, the parties have until March 1, 2022, to agree on eligibility criteria for the suit. The court has said that the first bellwether trials could commence in the summer of 2023, if not sooner.
To date, a single provider—Lexitas Legal—has been named the primary record retrieval provider in the multidistrict Zantac litigation. While it is not uncommon for a single company to serve as the main provider for record retrieval, it does lead to the risk of requests becoming bottlenecked due to high volume.
One of the ways to avoid delays is by going with a different option for record retrieval. It is helpful to remember that while Lexitas has been recognized by the parties to the lawsuit, there is no requirement that plaintiffs use their services. You have the right to choose your record retrieval provider when you are pursuing a Zantac lawsuit or any lawsuit involving patient records.
While the designated record retrieval partner might have official recognition by the parties in Zantac cases, there are other options that are available to you. Your firm has the ability to step outside of the box and choose a partner like National Record Retrieval that is prepared to streamline the record-collecting process in ways that other companies cannot.
