Default Can I refuse to participate in a class action?

Can I refuse to participate in a class action regarding a medical device and try to sue or negotiate some larger settlement (myself or with my own counsel) than I will get in the class action?
Thank you for any helpful information!

Yes, you are not obligated to join the class action. You can sue on your own.

Just understand that, if there is already a class action in progress it means that the issue is complicated and you'd be in way over your head if you attempted to litigate without a lawyer.
