Can You File A Class Action Lawsuit for Personal Injury Claims?
Yes, you can. If you were part of a group of people who were injured from the same crash, like the people in the news story above, then you can pursue a class action personal injury claim. Although it should be able to make the process smoother than pursuing individual personal injury claims, you need to be aware of the different interests that each involved party may have when they enter the class action. It is absolutely crucial to contact a lawyer if you plan to make this legal move. Call us for a free consultation on your personal injury case, available 24/7 at (310) 888-0024.
