The litigation process involves all similar cases being consolidated into one federal district court, as it so happened at the end of 2020 with the defendant Teva Pharmaceuticals.
This legal mechanism of resolution is called multidistrict litigation (MDL), and it is a very practical procedure.
Even if your case is joined with others that are similar, it still means that every plaintiff has their distinct lawyer.
MDL is not a class action, but a legal mechanism meant to speed up the process and make it more effective. There is only one judge maintaining ruling consistency and conveniently saving the parties money and time. Based on the specifics of each case, victims receive their separate settlements, not parts of a commonly shared one.
