Remington Rifle Class Action Lawsuit

Remington has been hit with at least three class action lawsuits over defective trigger mechanisms, according to the Missoulian. The class actions were filed in Montana, Washington, and Missouri. However, they were not “certified” and some were dismissed.

Remington has settled numerous individual lawsuits involving defective trigger mechanisms that can allegedly cause the gun to fire unexpectedly. Plaintiffs claim that the Walker Fire Control System on the Model 700 rifle is defective. The trigger system has been used by Remington since the 1940s and is found in over 5 million guns. Plaintiffs allege that Remington has known about the problem for decades.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, our Product Liability Litigation Team is not currently filing a Remington rifle class action lawsuit. The company is facing dozens of lawsuits involving people who were injured by defective rifles, but these are not part of a class action — instead, they are personal injury lawsuits filed by individual plaintiffs who have hired legal representation.

Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action

Class actions offer benefits in certain circumstances, especially when a large number of people have a relatively minor legal grievance — such as buying a defective product. However, for people who were severely injured, class actions can also have disadvantages. Plaintiffs are often forced to accept high attorneys’ fees and a “low-ball” settlement.

Our trial attorneys believe every person who was injured by a defective product deserves financial compensation and justice. Many of our clients are suffering the loss of a loved one or devastating medical bills, lost income, and more. This is why we always review cases for free and usually work on contingency-fee.
