A lawsuit brought by individuals or entities on behalf of a larger group who’ve sustained injuries or otherwise harmed by the same product or unlawful conduct is known as a class action lawsuit. This gives people the opportunity to seek justice by banding together and pool resources. Class action lawsuits give hundreds or even thousands of similarly affected individuals the chance to efficiently, and economically recover damages from a manufacturer, retailer, employer, financial institution, or government entity. We’ve listed some of the most noteworthy class action lawsuits in Ohio below.

If you or a loved one is part of a group who have been injured by another party’s negligence and would like to initiate or join a class action lawsuit, contact our highly-skilled Ohio class action lawyers at 1-800-HURT-NOW or submit a request online.

Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal Tibial Plate Lawsuit

Since 2012, many patients who have undergone total knee replacement procedures received Zimmer Persona Trabecular Metal tibial plate components. However, in March 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled more than 11,000 of these components after receiving reports that the plates may loosen while they are in the knee.

Any individual who had total knee replacement surgery between November 2012 and March 2015, and is experiencing painful side effects or had to undergo a corrective procedure may be entitled to compensation through this class action lawsuit.

GranuFlo and Naturalyte Class Action Lawsuit

Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc. created two dialysis medications, GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. In 2012, the FDA discovered that these medications were associated with serious health problems such as fatal heart attacks and stroke.

GranuFlo and NaturaLyte created chemical imbalances in the bloodstreams of patients who took these medications. Anyone who has been harmed by these drugs may participate in a class action lawsuit to collect compensation for their damages.

Invokana Class Action

Invokana is a popular medication prescribed to patients with type two diabetes. In 2015, the FDA found that Invokana may lead to a condition called ketoacidosis, which may result in a diabetic coma, organ failure, and in the most serious cases, death. It has also been correlated with kidney failure.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer of Invokana failed to warn users about the fact the drug may lead to lethal diabetic ketoacidosis. Those who have taken Invokana and dealt with the negative side effects such as ketoacidosis are encouraged to join the Invokana class action lawsuit.

Various Types of Class Action Lawsuits

There are any number of reasons class action lawsuits may be filed. The most common ones include:

  • Defective Products
    Any faulty products like over-the-counter and prescription medications, electronics, kitchen appliances, children’s toys, and building materials that cause harm to a large number of people may be included in a class action lawsuit.
  • Consumer Services
    Several examples of consumer services organizations that may be involved in a class action lawsuit include loan companies, banks, insurance corporations, and telephone companies.
  • Commercial Transactions
    Sometimes, commercial transactions are misleading and lead to class action lawsuits. This is particularly true if there are breaches of warranty, deceptive sales practices, or statutory violations.
  • Financial Issues
    Pension and benefit problems, securities fraud, and shareholder disputes are financial issues that may warrant class action lawsuits.
  • Employment
    In some cases, a group of employees may file a class action lawsuit because they haven’t been paid, do not receive overtime, have been discriminated against, or are forced to perform their jobs in unsafe conditions.
