Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) & Zofran Class Action Lawsuits
Zofran class action lawsuits may not be best for Zofran victims. Often class action lawsuits will equally divide up the total settlement between plaintiffs.

For many victims of Zofron, a Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) means they will get what they truly deserve.
