What Is a Class Action?
A class action is a civil lawsuit on behalf of a group of people with similar claims against a company. This group of people is referred to as a class, and filing these claims ensures efficient handling. This is because the group shares the prosecuting and investigating costs. The infamous Fen-Phen class action case was handled by Silva & Silva.
This specific case was against the manufacturers of two drugs that Fen-Phen, a dietary cocktail, was comprised of. The victims consumed the product without knowing it could have an adverse reaction.
Side-effects ranging from cardiac arrhythmias, pulmonary hypertension, valvulopathies, and heart disease were recorded in the victims. Manufacturers must mention any known side effects on the label. However, in this case, the manufacturers failed to do so.
Expert Class Action Attorneys in Ft Lauderdale, FL
Our team has also handled class-action lawsuits against consumer fraud which involved the sale of beads. The consumers that purchased the beads were promised a considerable amount once they were assembled. However, it was later found out that this was nothing more than a pyramid scheme.
The people who join in early on these schemes benefit from commissions received when others slowly start joining down the line. However, the entire scheme collapses when no more people are left to join in it. In most cases, the organizers of such Ponzi schemes have transferred all their earnings offshore when the rest catch up.
Our team of highly-skilled and knowledgeable class action attorneys in Ft Lauderdale, FL has helped several unsuspecting clients get justice in cases where corrupt Ponzi scheme operators have duped them.
