Types of claims

If you have been injured in any way by an entity, you can do two things, either a class action or you can sue the entity that has caused damage to you. In a class action, you are a part of a larger group of people who are suffering or have suffered from the same type of injury. In this case, you will not be able to take a decision on whether to settle or not. If the whole group decides to resolve the case, then you will have no choice but to settle.

If you decide to sue an entity on your own, then you will have to prove the case yourself. To do this you will have to prove that you were exposed to hazardous material. In addition to this, you will have to prove that the material hurt you, and finally, you will have to prove that the company should pay you for the harm that has been caused to you. Proving that the company should pay for the harm caused to you can be done by providing evidence that the harm was caused by either of the following: the Company’s negligence, Breach of Warranty, or Strict Liability.
