Have you or a loved one been injured by a cold therapy device? If so, you may be interested in filing a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers of cold therapy devices.
Cold Therapy Lawsuit Update 8/7/12: A California woman was awarded more than $12 million in a landmark lawsuit filed over complications suffered after using a Polar Care 500 cold therapy device. According to allegations raised in the complaint, the Polar Care 500 caused skin on the plaintiff’s legs to die, resulting in extensive injuries that required multiple reconstructive surgeries to correct.
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a class action suit and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members that have suffered from nerve damage, frost bite, or other serious side effect after using a cold therapy device.
About Class Action Lawsuits
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees.
At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each clients recovery by filing individual cold therapy injury lawsuits on their behalf.
