Is it better for me to file a pharmaceutical class action case or an individual lawsuit if I’ve suffered a serious side effect from a prescription drug?

You ask an important question and, like the answer to most legal questions, the answer depends on the unique circumstances of your case.

If you have been hurt by a prescription drug such as Actos, Fosamax, or another medication in Green Bay, Appleton, or another area of Wisconsin, then you may be able to file legal action for your injuries. Generally, you may be entitled to a recovery if the drug maker produced an unsafe product or if the drug maker or marketer did not warn the public about the potential side effects of the medication.

Were You the Only One Hurt?

There are benefits to filing a pharmaceutical class action case if other people have suffered similar side effects from the same medication. Together, you may share in the legal costs and you may share expert witnesses so that you can compete with the financial and legal resources of the drug manufacturer that will be aggressively defending itself. If you decide to file your own case then you will bear the entire financial and legal burden.
