How Class Action Lawsuits Could Cause You Problems

When a large group of people are commonly affected by a defective or dangerous product, they may be inclined to file what is called a “class action lawsuit.” In these cases, one legal case is used to represent any people against the manufacturer or seller of a certain product. In the case of hip replacement recalls, many people have been negatively affected by a defective DePuy ASR hip replacement system, and may be thinking about filing a DePuy class action. However, some research shows that class action lawsuits can actually not be beneficial to you as an individual.

If you have suffered injury or discomfort because of a DePuy hip replacement, contact an experienced DePuy lawsuit lawyer of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187. We will treat your case individually and work to get you the compensation that you need if you are the victim of a faulty or defective hip product.

Potential Issues

While some DePuy class action lawsuits have ultimately been successful in the past, they can sometimes cause filers difficulties and not to be compensated adequately. Research suggests that class action lawsuits can:

  • Get attorneys a large settlement, while plaintiffs are left with little
  • Limit a person’s control over how a lawsuit operates
  • Remove control of a filer’s settlement negotiations
  • Cause a “group mentality” in which individual complaints are overlooked
  • Result in unfair settlements

These are commonly reported problems of class action lawsuits that could affect you. However, you may increase your chances of obtaining compensation if you avoid joining in on a class action lawsuit.
