Benefits of Class Action Lawsuits

Large companies, such as pharmaceutical giants, have teams of lawyers and unlimited resources to fight injury claims. Class action lawsuits allow large groups of people who have been harmed by the same product, service, or situation, to level the playing field by combining resources, lowering legal costs, and recovering larger settlements or jury awards.

Whether you and others have experienced scenarios such as being harmed by severe side effects of a dangerous medication or exposed to chemicals due to a company’s groundwater contamination, the Birmingham personal injury attorneys can help you join together with other victims to fight the people or companies that caused you harm.

Another Way to Join Forces – Mass Torts

Class action lawsuits involve one lawsuit filed on behalf of many people. Another option is to file many individual lawsuits against the same people or companies for the same injuries in a mass tort claim. This allows you to exercise the same power, but receive individual attention and obtain an individual recovery. Our Birmingham class action lawyers at Belt & Bruner, P.C. can help you decide if your case would be better filed as a class action or mass tort.

Types of Cases We Handle

The Birmingham personal injury lawyers at Belt & Bruner, P.C. have handled numerous class action and mass tort lawsuits successfully. We understand the serious harm that defective or dangerous products, services, and situations can pose to the public. We have represented groups of victims in many types of cases, including the following:

  • Defective Products – If a company releases a product to consumers that is defective or dangerous, it may be liable for any harm that product causes before it is removed from the market.
  • Defective Medical Devices – Sometimes the medical devices that are supposed to improve or save lives are designed or manufactured in such a way that they are defective. The companies that designed and manufactured the product or the medical professional who supplied the device may be at fault for your injuries and other losses.
  • Dangerous Drugs – When a drug that is consumed by thousands of people causes long-lasting side effects and injuries that outweigh the benefits of the medication, pharmaceutical companies or prescribing doctors may be at fault.
  • Environmental Exposure – Oil spills, water contamination, chemical leaks, and other mass disasters can affect thousands of people at the same time. These environmental exposure cases can be difficult to prove and costly to litigate.
  • Consumer Fraud — When companies use deceptive or unfair practices that harm consumers, a class action lawsuit can be a way to hold the company accountable and deter the company from using such practices in the future.
