Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?

No, diabetes drug lawsuits will not become class actions. Some diabetes drug lawsuit claims have already been consolidated as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff. Others may be consolidated as MDL in the near future. Plaintiffs can rest assured that MDL increases the efficiency of handling similar cases filed against one or more companies, allowing similar complaints to share certain legal proceedings while still preserving the unique details of each case. This process is reserved for circumstances where a group of plaintiffs shares a common complaint that constitutes severe harm. Ultimately, compensation amounts are dependent upon the degree of suffering of each plaintiff.

Are there diabetes drug lawsuit time limits that may apply to my case?

Most states do have diabetes drug lawsuit time limits; however, most claims related to heart attack, cancer, kidney problems, amputation or another diabetes drug side effect will fall within those time limits if you contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.

We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?

If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company respond in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
