What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?
A class-action lawsuit is a type of legal proceeding in which several similar claims are consolidated. This group of individuals is regarded as a class, and filing the claims in this manner ensures that the lawsuit is handled more efficiently. This is because the class bears the expense of litigating the claim collectively. Silva & Silva is known in the Fen-Phen class action suit.
The lawsuit was filed against the manufacturers of two drugs that were used to produce the dietary supplement Fen-Phen. The victims were unaware of the serious side effects associated with Fen-Phen diet pills.
After taking these pills, they developed valvulopathies, cardiac arrhythmias, pulmonary hypertension, and heart disease. Manufacturers must prominently display on their labels the adverse effects of their products. However, the manufacturers of Fen-Phen failed or neglected to do so in this particular instance.
Credible Class Action Litigation Attorneys in Miami Gardens, FL
Our firm has also represented clients in a consumer fraud class action involving the sale of beads. Consumers that procured these beads had to weave them together and were handsomely compensated for their efforts. They later discovered this was a pyramid scheme or a Ponzi scheme.
Those who join this type of scheme when it first starts gain from commissions they earn on subsequent memberships. Once there are no more people to deceive, the entire scenario implodes. By this point, the organizers of Ponzi Schemes will have transferred all of their fraudulently earned money offshore.
