Q: My hip implant turned out to be defective (along with most of the ones made in the same batch as mine). Do I have to
join a class action suit if one forms or can I sue on my own?
A: Like many legal issues the answer depends on numerous factors. These include issues like the make, date and the time of discovery of your defective implant. Also, if a class action already exists you could potentially join or you may choose not to join and bring your own direct lawsuit. If a class action has not already formed you could potentially be the class representative. Obviously there are many factors to review and consider. Please feel free to contact me to discuss the issue in more detail. All of my contact information is available on my website https://www.attorneybillwhite.com/
