No Longer Accepting Cases

Thousands of people who were injured by Chantix have filed lawsuits after they developed severe psychological problems. The majority of these lawsuits have already been settled.

Chantix Class Action Lawsuit Information

In July 2013, settlement agreements were finalized in nearly 700 Chantix lawsuits — the first step in resolving over 3,000 lawsuits pending in federal court in the Northern District of Alabama. As of April 2014, only about 250 lawsuits remained.

These lawsuits are not part of a Chantix class action — they are individual lawsuits that have been centralized in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2092).

Plaintiffs allege that Chantix causes a variety of psychological problems, including suicidal behavior, and other severe side effects. In a report with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Pfizer said it had agreed to settle roughly 80% of the lawsuits for $273 million, and they have set aside $15 million to resolve the rest.

About Class Actions

Class actions are a useful and beneficial way to consolidate a large number of legal claims into one representational lawsuit. They make sense in certain circumstances, such as when thousands of people purchase a defective product and are seeking reimbursement.
