Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
No, individual Lemtrada lawsuit claims will not become a class action. National Lemtrada stroke lawsuit claims may eventually be consolidated as MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, a legal procedure that adds efficiency to the processing of similar cases while still preserving the unique details of each case. When MDLs reach a settlement, compensation is factored based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff. This process is reserved for circumstances where a group of plaintiffs shares a common complaint that constitutes severe harm, such as litigation regarding an unsafe drug or defective medical device.
Who is at risk for arterial dissection or stroke from Lemtrada?
Any person taking Lemtrada (alemtuzumab) in the treatment of relapsing MS, may develop arterial dissection or stroke. Of the thirteen cases reported to the FDA, 12 patients experienced stroke in the first day of their first intravenous dose of Lemtrada. In one case, Lemtrada stroke developed on the third day after the patient was first given the drug. No other specific risk factors have been identified. The FDA also warns that patients taking alemtuzumab as Campath, which is approved to treat B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, have suffered from stroke and artery tears.
Are there Lemtrada lawsuit time limits that may apply to my case?

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 defective product or dangerous 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 defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company act -- in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use, and ultimately making safer products -- we rely on their profit motivation 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 steers a company toward becoming a better corporate citizen.
