Cold Therapy Class Action Lawsuit
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our class action lawyers have decided against pursuing a class action lawsuit against the manufacturers of cold therapy machines. However, if you were injured, we still encourage you to contact us regarding an individual cold therapy lawsuit.
Your cold therapy lawsuit could be compensated for:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Future surgery or medical care
- Lost income, employment, or wages
- Permanent injury (scarring, disfigurement)
- Disability (amputation)
- Punitive damages
- And more
About Class Action Lawsuits
Class action lawsuits are ideal for certain types of injuries, but not usually medical device injuries. For example, a class action makes sense when a large number of people are systematically denied overtime pay by an employer. One person does not have the resources to fight for the wages they deserve, and even if they won, their legal expenses would be less than their compensation. However, when a large number of people band together, they can fight together for the highest settlement possible.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits Instead of a Cold Therapy Class Action Lawsuits
Medical device litigation is a little bit different than your typical class action lawsuit. The injuries associated with cold therapy machines are extremely severe, and plaintiffs who file an individual cold therapy lawsuit have been awarded multi-million dollar settlements — for example, 15 year-old plaintiff Whitney Engler was awarded $12.5 million in December 2012 for her cold therapy lawsuit. In these cases, it makes sense for a plaintiff to hire a lawyer who will fight for the highest amount of compensation they deserve for their individual claim.
Our lawyers are concerned that a cold therapy class action lawsuit is not the best way to help our clients maximize their financial recovery. Members of a class action must share any settlement they get, which could substantially reduce their individual payout. They could be forced to accept a “low-ball settlement” by manufacturers who are eager to settle as many lawsuits as possible as quickly as possible. Furthermore, once a settlement is reached, they may have limited options for fighting for what they really deserve.
How Can a Cold Therapy Lawyer Help?
Our cold therapy lawyers can help you:
- Find out whether you still have time to file a lawsuit.
- If the manufacturer of your cold therapy machine has offered a settlement, we can review documents you might need to sign that could limit your future ability to file a lawsuit.
- File a lawsuit, explain the legal process, plan your legal strategy, and argue your case in court.
- Fight for the maximum amount of compensation you deserver for your claim.
