The Aerotek Class Action Lawsuit was brought forth as a class action lawsuit. Classes in a class action lawsuit refer to those who have joined the lawsuit. This type of lawsuit is different from a typical lawsuit in that all members of the class are parties to the lawsuit and therefore are entitled to their own lawyer. Class action lawsuits bring together large numbers of people who may not ordinarily have been able to interact or contact each other and is generally less formal than typical lawsuits. In this article, we’ll discuss the case and how it is handled.
The original complaint involved a defective aerotek hair loss treatment, which was sold online and claimed it could help treat hair loss.
The FDA, claiming the product was a drug, ordered it pulled off the shelves, and asked that Aerotek produce an updated version of the treatment with a new label that did not include any reference to being a drug. A number of people filed suit, claiming that they bought the product, spent time researching it, and then used it for a significant period of time. After suffering some loses, they decided to pursue the case to ensure it wasn’t suppressed simply because of who had sold it.
Attorneys handling the case got wind of the lawsuit and quickly started to look into it. They found that most people were improperly represented by their attorneys. Because of this, the lawsuit was re-opened and the original complaint was also filed.
During discovery, attorneys discovered that Aerotek understood there were some inherent risks associated with their product but sold aggressively to get the sales and did not take into consideration the potential side effects.
Additionally, many people were misdiagnosed with other conditions, when in actuality, their problems were more serious. People with cancer, for instance, were misdiagnosed with Lupus, when it was in fact Lupus. Others were misdiagnosed with depression or anxiety and treated with medications which could be addictive, resulting in the lawsuits.
The original complaint stated that Aerotek’s products caused various types of ailments, such as hair loss, dry scalp, and skin irritation.
Other complaints included pain, numbness, allergic reactions, stomach upset, diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, chest pain, heart palpitations, etc. Some people were even diagnosed with diseases they didn’t have, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. Many of the plaintiffs also alleged that Aerotek failed to warn consumers about the potential side effects and that their advertisements were deceptive. Some also alleged that Aerotek never provided with a money back guarantee, when they did this they failed to provide refunds.
The original class action lawsuit was filed in California. A number of people filed and won the lawsuit from this point forward. This settlement was much larger than originally anticipated due to many people filing class action lawsuits. In addition, many more companies joined the class action lawsuit as well. The class action lawsuit was eventually put into a court and a judge ordered the ingredients Aerotek to remove from their products. However, Aerotek did not remove all ingredients.
An additional suit was filed against Aerotek by their distributor.
The suit was also lost, and this was the company’s first loss in a court trial. They also settled with the company who sold them the defective products. They settled for $1.35 million, out of court.
As you can see from the original lawsuit, Aerotek knew something was wrong, and they were selling low quality products.
It was only through customer feedback that the company was able to correct their flaws. However, they still haven’t corrected their ways. The class action lawsuit is ongoing, and it is unknown if the company will be able to correct their ways. This lawsuit is very unfortunate, but unfortunately this is the way business in America works.
