Class-action lawsuits Can they help you?

Written by Charles Essmeier

The recent withdrawals ofrepparttar prescription medications Vioxx and Bextra fromrepparttar 135544 marketplace due to safety concerns has class-action lawsuits inrepparttar 135545 news again. What is a class-action lawsuit? If you have been wronged, can a class-action lawsuit help you?

A class-action lawsuit is one in which a single law firm or attorney represents a group of individuals who have been wronged in some common way. The wrong may have come inrepparttar 135546 form of physical harm from a commercial product or perhaps inrepparttar 135547 form of financial harm done by a company misleadingrepparttar 135548 public in some way. Inrepparttar 135549 early 1990s, class-action lawsuits were filed on behalf of women allegedly harmed by silicone breast implants, and now attorneys are filing class-action suits on behalf of people allegedly harmed throughrepparttar 135550 use of Vioxx and Bextra.

There are advantages and disadvantages to class-action suits. The primary advantage is that they allow a group of people, perhaps numbering inrepparttar 135551 thousands, an opportunity to have their case heard in court without each of them having to file a separate lawsuit. If thousands, or even tens of thousands, of people filed individual lawsuits againstrepparttar 135552 same company forrepparttar 135553 same reason,repparttar 135554 courts, both atrepparttar 135555 Federal and state levels, could become hopelessly clogged with nearly identical cases. Another advantage is that it allows people who may not have individually suffered enough harm to justify a lawsuit by themselves to seek compensation
