Should I care if the pharmaceutical class action case I’m part of settles or goes to trial?

You may have heard the news and not known what to think. As part of a group of plaintiffs who have been hurt by a prescription drug, you may wonder whether a settlement is really in your best interest. You may be concerned that justice can’t be done without a jury, a courtroom, and a trial.

A Settlement May Be in Your Best Interest

Justice does not require a judge or jury. A class action settlement can:

  • Provide you with the financial recovery that you need and that you deserve.
  • Be less costly than going to trial.
  • Hold the pharmaceutical company accountable for the harm that has been done to you and the other plaintiffs in your class action case.
  • Help encourage this pharmaceutical company, and others, to do better testing, provide better warnings, and prevent future injuries.

In general, a settlement can help you achieve all of your litigation goals without going to court.

But Every Case Is Different

If you have specific questions about your case and about whether a settlement is in your best interest, then it is important to contact your pharmaceutical class action lawyer. Whether you’ve been hurt by a defective hip implant or other medical device implanted at Genesis Medical Center or a drug that was prescribed by a Davenport doctor, it is important to know your rights.
