What is the difference between a class action suit and a personal injury lawsuit?

Under normal circumstances, an individual who has been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent actions can file a civil lawsuit against the party responsible for the injury. These personal injury lawsuits are typically stand-alone cases. However, in a class action lawsuit, a group of injured individuals take legal action against the same defendant. This is most common in defective product cases, such as unsafe pharmaceutical cases.
