Lipitor is a popular cholesterol-lowering medication that has been associated with an increased risk of type-2 diabetes. Many people who took Lipitor and developed diabetes are looking for information regarding a Lipitor class action lawsuit. Our law firm will review any potential lawsuit, but we are currently helping our clients file individual lawsuits instead of class actions.
Do I Have a Texas Lipitor Lawsuit? Collen A. Clark is a true advocate for his clients and is passionate about helping Texans that have been injured or wronged. If you or a loved one was injured by Lipitor, you should contact our lawyers immediately. You may be entitled to compensation by filing a Lipitor class action lawsuit or individual lawsuit in Texas.
What’s the problem?
Although The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, we have decided against filing a Lipitor class action lawsuit. However, we are currently filing individual Lipitor lawsuits on behalf of individuals who developed type-2 diabetes after taking Lipitor.
Lipitor Class Action Lawsuits and Federal Litigation
If you were injured by Lipitor (atorvastatin), you may be looking for information regarding a Lipitor class action lawsuit. Every year, thousands of people join class action lawsuits because they don’t want to be the only person fighting a giant corporation. The reason for this is obvious — even if you win your case, the cost of fighting a multinational corporation could outweigh even a large settlement.
However, Lipitor is different. Many people have been injured by this litigation and will be filing lawsuits against the manufacturer — you are not alone.
Furthermore, you may be surprised to learn that most large and complex drug litigation is not resolved through class action lawsuits in the United States. It is usually resolved in federal court in a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) involving mostly individual lawsuits. Like a class action, an MDL centralizes thousands of individual lawsuits into one court. Unlike a class action, individual lawsuits in an MDL remain independent. If you don’t agree to a settlement, your lawsuit can return to the state court where it was originally filed.
An MDL has many advantages over a class action lawsuit. It is more convenient for the key witnesses, the discovery process is more efficient, there is a lower risk of conflicting rulings in different courts, and the overall costs are typically much lower for everyone involved.
About Class Action Lawsuits
Class action lawsuits are a special type of litigation in which a large number of people with an injury consolidate their individual claims into one claim. One member of the class is chosen to be the “class representative” whose name appears on the lawsuit. The outcome for the entire class depends on the merits of this person’s case. If there is a settlement, it is typically split evenly among everyone in the class.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits Instead of a Lipitor Class Action Lawsuit
Our lawyers are concerned that a Lipitor class action lawsuit may not be the best way to maximize your individual recovery — especially if you were seriously injured. You may be forced to accept a “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees.
Even if your class action is awarded a large settlement, your individual payment might not be enough to cover your expenses or actual damages. However, if you file an individual lawsuit, your lawyer will fight for your individual right to the highest amount of compensation you deserve.
We help our clients maximize their recovery for damages, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Future medical care
- Lost wages or earning potential
- Permanent injury or disability
- Loss of consortium for your spouse
- Decreased quality of life
- Emotional suffering
- Punitive damages against manufacturers
- Wrongful death
- And more
