What is a Class Action Lawsuit?
A class action lawsuit is a type of lawsuit that is filed on behalf of a large number of people (or, “class”) who have suffered very similar injuries or damages from the same product. All of the individual claims are consolidated into one claim, and the entire class is usually represented by the law firm that filed the class action. The resolution of the claim usually depends on one single member of the class, who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative.”
Byetta MDL and Settlement Agreements
Over 750 lawsuits involving Byetta and other diabetes drugs in the incretin mimetic class have been centralized in a federal Multi-District Litigaiton (MDL No. 2452) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, where they are overseen by Judge Anthony Battaglia. In August 2014, AstraZeneca agreed to settlements in 84 lawsuits involving Byetta.
In the United States, largest and complex drug injury litigation is frequently resolved in a Multi-District Litigation. A MDL often centralizes thousands of individual lawsuits and class actions into one court, under one judge. This is often the most efficient and cost-effective way to resolve a dispute. Another benefit of an MDL is that individual lawsuits remain independent. If a settlement or resolution cannot be reached, the lawsuit is remanded back to the state court where it was originally filed.
About Class Actions
Class action lawsuits can offer advantages in some cases, but a personal injury lawsuit may actually be the best way to maximize each client’s financial recovery in a potential settlement agreement. If a settlement is reached, any settlement funds could be split evenly among the members of the class action. Unfortunately, for individuals who were severely injured, a class action lawsuit settlement might not be enough to cover their medical expenses, lost income, and more.
