Lawsuits & Settlements

Sometimes, by the time a recalls occurs consumers will have already been at risk and the product may have caused serious problems.

In cases that a product has caused injuries to a large number of consumers, class action or mass tort attorneys put together a suit to ensure consumer rights are protected through group litigation allowing victims to be supported and share legal fees. Many attorneys who work on these types of cases work on a contingency basis. These types of lawsuits may be filed on behalf of the consumers affected or their families claiming manufacturer or retailer negligence with the intention of compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other injury damages.

If a settlement is reached in the above mentioned suit, claiments will be entitled to financial compensation. Other consumers are also given a period of time to make a claim and join the settlement. If you or a loved one has been affected in a negative way as a result of a recalled product you could be eligible to receive monetary or other benefits as a result of a class action settlement. You should contact an attorney and understand your rights and your rights to claim settlement.
