What Exactly Is a Class Action Suit?
A class action is a legal proceeding in which similar claims are bunched together. This group is referred to as a class, and filing the claims cumulatively ensures that the case is handled more effectively and efficiently. That’s because the class as a whole bears the cost of litigating the claim. Silva & Silva is known for its involvement in the Fen-Phen class action lawsuit.
The lawsuit was brought against the manufacturing companies of two drugs used in the formulation of Fen-Phen, a dietary supplement. The victims took the Fen-Phen diet pills unaware of the potential for serious side effects.
They experienced valvulopathies, heart disease, cardiac arrhythmias, and pulmonary hypertension after taking these pills. Manufacturers have to prominently display the negative effects of their products on the label. However, the fen-Phen manufacturers had faltered or omitted to do so in this instance.

Additionally, our law firm represented clients in a class-action consumer fraud case related to the sale of beads. Consumers who purchased these beads were required to assemble them and were compensated handsomely for their efforts. They discovered later that it was a pyramid scheme, also called a Ponzi scheme.
Those who join in this sort of scheme when it is initiated benefit from commissions earned when additional members join later. If there are not enough people to deceive, the entire scheme implodes. By this point, the Ponzi Scheme organizers have typically funneled all of their unlawful earnings offshore.
