Should I Be Filing a Tort or a Class Action Lawsuit?
When a person suffers because of the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella, they may want to consider legal action against the drug’s manufacturer. These drugs can cause a variety of serious health problems, including stroke, pulmonary embolism, and heart attack. There are several different options when a person wants to file a lawsuit against a manufacturer. One important decision is to determine which kind of lawsuit one will pursue.
There is no definitive answer whether a person will benefit more with a class action lawsuit or as a part of a mass tort. However, at Williams Kherkher, we believe that the individual support and assistance given in a tort lawsuit works better for the injured person. To learn more about your options when filing, contact the Yaz birth control injury lawyers today at 800-761-3187.
Benefits of a Class Action Lawsuit
A class action lawsuit seeks to hold a negligent manufacturer accountable when numerous parties have suffered as a consequence of the same product. They may join together to file a single lawsuit against the company or organization responsible. This gathers together the resources of the injured.
Benefits of a Mass Tort
Mass tort actions are not banded together like class action lawsuits. Instead, each person makes their own claim against the responsible company. Because of this, a person gets the opportunity to address their own injuries and concerns. The compensation is not shared among the claimants, giving each person the amount that they were awarded or settled for.
