Class action lawsuits. It seems as if almost every day there is a new lawsuit against a company or service provider. Our firm commonly handles class action lawsuits that involve individuals who were injured or became ill because of a certain product, drug or medical device. Some common ones within the past five years have included:
- Transvaginal mesh
- DePuy Hip Implant
- SSRIs and Birth Defects
Class action lawsuits are formed when multiple parties were harmed in the same or similar ways, and the lawsuit alleges that a certain product manufacturer is liable for the defect/danger that caused those injuries. If you were injured by a defective drug, consumer product or medical device, you may qualify as a class member.
Potential members of a class action are sometimes notified by mail, email, phone, etc. If you become aware of the fact that a certain product or drug you are using is being recalled or the product manufacturer is liable for some kind of defect (marketing, manufacturing or design), then you may be entitled to take legal action.
It is important to remember that not everyone receives a notice that they might be entitled to joining a class action lawsuit. If you hear that a certain product or drug you are using is the subject of an investigation or recall, then contact a St. Louis injury lawyer at Fox Goldblatt & Singer PC.
We can evaluate your case and determine if you are entitled to taking legal action. Not all attorneys handle class action lawsuits, but we do. Take your case to us, and if we believe that you have a case, then we will petition for a judge's approval so we can move forward with the lawsuit against the product manufacturer.
