What’s the problem?
November 12, 2018 – The recall comes just a couple weeks after Lime announced it was pulling scooters from Los Angeles, San Diego, and Lake Tahoe markets for fear the batteries could catch fire. Lime said that recall amounted to 0.01 percent of its fleet, or about 2,000 scooters, according to the Post.
In response to these problems, Lime has developed a brand new scooter, the Generation 3.0, which features a “custom-designed, sturdier frame and redesigned battery, making it more durable and resilient for life on the streets.”
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lime Scooter Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Lime Scooter Recall Class Action Suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members who were injured while riding Lime Scooters.
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Lime Scooter lawsuits on their behalf.
