Typicality: The claim of the class representatives claims are nearly identical with the claims of oother class members. 4.  Adequacy of Representation: The class representative has the resources and legal representation to protect the rights of all class members.

Should I Join A Class Action Lawsuit or File a Single Party Claim

Deciding whether to join a class action lawsuit or seek out a single party claim can be a difficult for many. Class action lawsuits provide for an equal distribution of any settlement or jury award for all members involved. Even if your injuries are significantly greater than other members you will still receive an equal allotment of the awarded amount. In single party lawsuits individuals have greater flexibility in their legal options. The can be the chief deciding force in determining whether to accept an offer or reject an offer.

I have taken naproxen for a lot of years. Uab and UCLA are currently studying the effects it has on kidneys. I would like more information on the class action lawsuit.

is the lawsuit on Alleve still open? I had an acute stroke back on 3-11-05. At the time I was taking Alleve heavy. It was helping me relax and sleep at night. I have restless leg syndrome and didn’t know what it was at the time. I was working a 10 hour a day job, standing in one spot. I thought the leg problem was from that, at the time. Alleve was the only thing stopping my legs at night. I am better than expected from the level of my stroke. My worse handicap is very little use in my left hand and keep it drawn up. I tire easy and my balance is not good. Only reason, I might have had the stroke was the birth control pills I was also on. But now i’ve heard about the Alleve causing strokes, and as heavy as I was on them. They could have been the reason. I was just curious if the lawsuit is still open, If I can get in on it. Thank you.

I had been feeling very I’ll since 1998 being on the Naproxen medication; my doctor have diagnosed me to have a serious ulcer in my intestines, and he recommended a risky surgery to combat this problem. i have been feeling like dirty oil was trapped inside of my gusts causing me pain, nausea, weight gain, constant bouts with either constipation or/and diarrhea, depression, dizziness, and muscle weakness with fatigue. What attorney can help me to receive compensation for corrective medical treatments/surgery, economical/financial benefits as provisions for the rest of my life?

I was recently hospitalized with severe anemia due from bleeding ulcers. I have been severely anemic for about 2 years as I have also been prescribed Naproxen about my arthritis. Additionally I had kidney failure. I feel that Naproxen is a dangerous drug and I have heard many such stories as what happened to me. I feel that I am due some kind of payment for negligence and pain and suffering and attorneys may email me at ***@***.com
