When a standard personal injury claim is filed, it typically only involves one person who believes they were injured because of someone else’s negligence. If, however, multiple people experienced the same or similar harm against a corporation or other entities, that group has the right to pursue a class action lawsuit.

Class actions most often derive out of situations involving defective products and dangerous medications. If you’ve been injured in a situation like that, you may be able to take part in a class action. In order to understand how class actions are started, let’s take a look at how these types of lawsuits are defined, what the filing requirements are, and what the overall process looks like.

Any kind of physical injury can have an impact on a person’s life. Bruises, sprains, and broken bones to any body part can be painful and take time to heal.

But a brain injury might not heal the same way, and you could never get back to how you were before the injury.

When you suffer from a brain injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to worry about the costs associated with your recovery.

In regard to backing up and parking, backup cameras help prevent back-over crashes—protecting some of the most vulnerable people, including children and senior citizens.
