What is a Class Action Lawsuit?
When you join a class action lawsuit, your claim is consolidated with many other claims from other people with similar injuries. One law firm usually represents the entire class, and one case is chosen to be the “class representative.” If the class action lawsuit is settled, the value of the settlement is based on the merits of the representative’s case. The award is typically split evenly among the members of the class. One disadvantage of this system is that you could potentially receive less compensation than you may actually deserve. However, once you agree to settle your lawsuit in a class action, you may limit your ability to seek additional compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Individual Janumet Lawsuits or a Janumet Class Action Lawsuit?
Most people think of a class action lawsuit when they think about joining a large litigation against a pharmaceutical company. In the United States, large and complex drug injury litigation is usually resolved in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). An MDL is a federal action that may contain class action lawsuits and individual lawsuits. Once an individual lawsuit is transferred to an MDL, it remains independent, and it can be remanded back to its original state court if the plaintiff does not agree to a settlement.
