What’s the Problem with Fitbit?
This nationwide recall affects Fitbit ForceTM wireless trackers with the model numbers FB402BK, FB402BKS, FB402SL and FB402SLS. Fitbit has multiple functions including pedometer, sleep monitor & watch. It is about 3/4” wide, comes in large and small sizes in black or slate colors. The model # is located on the back of the watch behind the charging port.
Fitbit trackers affected by this recall were sold between Oct of 2013 thru Feb. 2014 for about $130 at: AT&T, Apple Stores, Best Buy, Brookstone, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Radio Shack, REI, Sports Authority, Target, and online at Amazon.com and Fitbit.com. If you purchased a Fitbit Tracker you feel may be defective, you may wish to contact the manufacturer for a refund.
Has a Fitbit Burn Class Action Lawsuit Been Filed?
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Products Liability Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Fitbit Burn Class Action Lawsuit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of individuals and/or their family members that have been injured by the Fitbit Tracker.
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Fitbit Burn Lawsuits on their behalf.
