Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?

National AFFF lawsuit claims for cancer have been consolidated as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff. This process increases the efficiency of processing vast numbers of cases all related to one common harm.

We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?

If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a dangerous product or drug, long-term, or even lifelong, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every lawsuit we file can serve to make the parties responsible take note of the loss and pain their actions have caused. When that fails to lead to a safer world, we rely on the threat of large settlements to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that results in lasting change.
