At THE DRAKULICH FIRM, we specialize in handling mass actions, representing multiple plaintiffs who have suffered similar types of personal injuries due to the same defective medical device or unreasonably dangerous pharmaceutical drug. Our experienced team of lawyers is well-versed in various types of mass actions, including mass torts, multi-district litigations (MDL), California Judicial Council Coordination Proceedings (JCCP), and class actions. We are dedicated to fighting for the rights of our clients and seeking justice on their behalf.
When a large number of individuals are injured by a common product, device, or pharmaceutical drug, it often leads to a mass tort action. Our firm has extensive experience in mass tort litigation, representing clients who have suffered injuries caused by dangerous drugs, defective medical devices, harmful consumer products, and more. We understand the complexities involved in mass tort cases and have the resources and knowledge necessary to navigate through these challenging legal matters.
Multi-District Litigations (MDL)
In situations where multiple lawsuits involving similar claims are filed across different federal districts, they can be consolidated into a single federal court for coordinated pretrial proceedings. This process is known as Multi-District Litigations (MDL). Our skilled attorneys have successfully represented clients in MDL cases, often being appointed to the Plaintiff Steering Committees and working alongside other plaintiffs’ attorneys to streamline the litigation process, gather evidence, and fight for the best possible outcome for our clients.
California Judicial Council Coordination Proceedings (JCCP)
In California, when numerous lawsuits arise from a common event or involve similar legal issues, they can be coordinated through the California Judicial Council Coordination Proceedings (JCCP) system. JCCP allows for the consolidation of cases before a single judge for efficient management. Our firm has extensive experience in handling JCCP cases, advocating for our clients’ rights and ensuring that their voices are heard in the coordinated proceedings.
When a group of individuals shares similar injuries or damages caused by a common defendant, a class action lawsuit may be pursued. Class actions provide an opportunity for individuals with similar claims to join together and seek compensation collectively. Our dedicated team possesses the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to effectively represent clients in class actions, and pursue justice on behalf of the entire class.
