St. Louis Personal Injury Lawyer
Class Action Suits in St. Louis
There are cases of personal injury in which individuals who have suffered injury sue a negligent corporation on behalf of a larger group of injured victims. These cases frequently involve
defective products such as
blinds, cribs, toys, automobiles and other products, cases of consumer fraud and deceptive practices, as well as
dangerous drugs. This allows all of the injured to seek
compensation from the negligent corporation in one lawsuit. These often take several years to resolve and include huge payouts to the large group of injured clients.
Hard-Hitting St. Louis Class Action Lawyer
Each injured person has a different degree of damage, ranging from minor to fatal injuries. Evaluating the degree of injury and other damages is an important factor in these cases. We invite you to contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney from our firm to evaluate your situation and advise you how we expect the case to resolve, and the length of time, as well as the predicted settlement based on the damages suffered in your case.
Many of these cases take place in federal court, but many cases are also filed in state court. It is required that as part of "due process" that all those who may have suffered similar damages are contacted through mail, advertisements or broadcast in advertisements seeking the injured to take part in the class action suit. The individual has the opportunity to "opt out" of the class action and proceed with a claim as an individual if this is what would serve their best interests. This opting out of the suit must be filed with the court in a timely manner in order to allow the individual to file a separate suit.
