About Class Action Lawsuits
When a number of people claim to have suffered minor injuries as a result of purchasing a defective product, it may be advantageous to join a class action lawsuit because it can be difficult and/or impractical for each person to file an individual lawsuit against the product manufacturer.
Class action lawsuits are more about efficiency for those with similar claims—they are not necessarily designed to maximize compensation for individuals that have suffered serious injuries, such as cancer diagnoses. This is why our lawyers are only filing individual lawsuits for people who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma after using a talcum powder product.
