Yaz Class Action Lawsuit InformationClass action lawsuits are filed where there is a large number of victims with a similar or nearly identical claim against a defendant.

Should I Join A Class Action of File a Single Party Claim The decision of joining a class action lawsuit or filing a single party personal injury claim can be challenging. Through a legal consultation an attorney can present you with the positive and negative consequences of the legal direction you intend to take. The main issue with class action lawsuits is that members of the class who are not chosen and the class representative do not have a say in settlement negotiations. Moreover, once there is a settlement of jury verdict the compensation is awarded equally to each member of the class despite the fact that some members may have experienced more severe injuries due to the negligent or wrongful actions at fault parties. For example if there are 100 members of a class action and there is a $100 million settlement then each member will receive an equal compensation of $1 million dollars.
