Aren't most products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff can expect only a small, symbolic settlement?
Takata airbag lawsuits are not class action lawsuits. Instead, Takata airbag lawsuits have been consolidated in U.S. District Court in Miami as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation. This is a legal procedure that allows cases with similar claims to be processed at once, while preserving the unique elements of each case. Individual claimants in a products liability MDL can expect to receive real compensation, with the amount based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
