What Is a Class Action?
A class action is a method in which individual claimants having similar claims are grouped. This group is called a class, and filing their claims ensures improved and efficient handling. This is because the entire class shares the claim’s investigating and prosecuting costs. Silva & Silva has notably been involved in the Fen-Phen class action case.
The litigation was against the manufacturers of two drugs that went into the making of Fen-Phen, a dietary cocktail. The victims took these Fen-Phen diet pills, not knowing that there could be severe side effects.
The side-effects they suffered from these pills ranged from valvulopathies, cardiac arrhythmias, heart disease, and pulmonary hypertension. Manufacturers are required to mention the side effects of their products very clearly on the label. However, in this case, the manufacturers had failed to do so.
Experienced Class Action Litigation Attorneys in Coral Gables, FL
Our law firm also handled another class-action consumer fraud case involving the sale of beads. Consumers that bought these beads had to assemble them and were promised a handsome amount for their labor. It was only later that they found out it was a pyramid scheme or Ponzi Scheme.
Those who participate early on in this type of scheme when it is launched benefit from commissions they receive when more people join down the track. Ultimately, when there are no more people left to dupe, the entire scheme collapses. In most instances, the Ponzi Scheme organizers have channeled all their illicit earnings offshore by this time.
