When a mass tort claim is filed, there are several stages that victims will need to go through with their attorneys. It all begins with the victim receiving help for any injuries and illnesses they ended up with after using a specific product.
After receiving medical help and having their injuries documented by medical professionals, the victims need to consult with an experienced Philadelphia mass tort attorney to provide this information and find out about the options they have when getting involved in the mass tort litigation process. Kwartler Manus, LLC makes sure to walk clients through each stage of the lengthy process.
Reviewing Documents and Other Important Information
Before your Philadelphia mass tort attorney can help you with the process of filing a lawsuit against the negligent, liable company, the attorney must first review a lot of information. Some of the information that needs reviewing includes:
- Details of your injuries or illnesses
- Details of injuries and illnesses sustained by others using the same products or taking the same types of medications
- The number of plaintiffs that are already involved in the mass tort litigation process
- Statements made by the company where they are admitting fault
Your attorney needs to go over this information to ensure that you have a strong case. It can take some time to review all this information, but once it is done, the attorney can help you take the next step to seek justice and getting compensated for your injuries.
Filing a Lawsuit Against the Company
When everything adds up and it appears that your injuries and/or illnesses are much like those of the other victims who used the same product or medication, the attorney who is representing you will then proceed with filing a lawsuit against the company. The attorney would include specific details on the reason that you are filing the lawsuit in the first place, along with the damages you are hoping to recover due to your medical expenses and physical pain and suffering.
Working on Negotiations to Reach a Settlement
An attorney will work hard to reach a reasonable settlement for the client. As the client, you want to get the most money possible from the company that has caused you to suffer in different ways because you did not deserve to go through what you have gone through. The attorney negotiates and only agrees to a settlement when it is going to work in your favor. If the company is not willing to provide a decent settlement amount, the case can go to trial.
