A: A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. It would be best to reach out to law firms to discuss the exact way they handle things. But as a general matter in cases involving large numbers of plaintiffs, they can be handled as part of large multi-district litigation. A law firm that specializes in the cases could add to its roster of claimants on a rolling basis, subject to statues of limitations and federal/state practice rules. The best thing to do would be to reach out to law firms to try to arrange a free initial consult - although the general process may be similar in the big picture across the nation with such cases, each individual law firm could have its own conditions, fees, or other terms for representation. Good luck
