No. If you have been hurt by a prescription drug or a medical device, then you do not have to find others who have been similarly hurt and contact a pharmaceutical class action attorney together.
But Don’t I Need Other Plaintiffs to File a Class Action Case?
The answer to this question is yes. You cannot file a class action case on your own. The very definition of a class action requires that there be a group—or class—of plaintiffs who suffered similar injuries from the same medication or medical device.
However, it is not up to you to find that group of people prior to talking with a lawyer. As an individual who was treated by a doctor at Iowa Methodist Medical Center, Broadlawns Medical Center, or by a physician elsewhere in Des Moines, you may not have the ability to find others who were hurt. That doesn’t mean that these individuals don’t exist; it simply means that they are difficult for an individual to find.
This may be something that an experienced pharmaceutical class action lawyer can help you with after you contact a lawyer to discuss your injury and your legal rights.
