The Alloderm skin-graft is designed to help people with severe burns and other injuries. Unfortunately, for years it was sold without warnings about pre-stretching the skin graft before surgery. As a result, many people were injured.

About Class Actions
Class action lawsuits make sense when there are a lot of people who have essentially the same legal claim. Instead of everyone filing a lawsuit alone, plaintiffs hire a law firm to fight for compensation on behalf of the entire group. Class actions are an ideal way for thousands of people to seek compensation, such as reimbursement for purchasing a defective product. However, class actions can also have disadvantages for people with severe injuries. Members of class actions are often forced into higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement offer.
