A class action claim can be filed to represent plaintiffs with the same injuries in a state or spread across several states. This united effort against the defendant allows your case to be heard along with others against a large corporation who only has their best interest in mind.
In a class action lawsuit, courts award both punitive and compensatory damages to the defendant. Punitive damages are a form of punishment for the company committing the harmful, negligent or illegal actions. Compensatory damages address the actual damages caused by the defendant’s actions.

Why Class Actions?A class action can consolidate cases that have highly similar claims, so they consume fewer judicial resources. In addition, this legal tool offers individuals who have been harmed on a small scale a chance to obtain justice and compensation. It doesn’t make sense to file a lawsuit against a company whose deceptive marketing practices have cost you $50. But if 8,000 consumers have had the same experience — and each consumer has lost $50 — a class action can be a highly effective mechanism not only to get compensation but also to stop the offending business from engaging in illegal practices.
The Nuts and Bolts of Class ActionsAn attorney can start a class action by filing a lawsuit on behalf of one person who has been wronged and then finding a class of people who have been similarly harmed. Depending on the circumstances, an attorney may need to 50 or more prospective members to get the class “certified” by the court. A plaintiff can start his or her own class action or join a class action already in progress. However, just because other people have filed a class action does not mean that you necessarily want to opt in to the class. Perhaps, you would be better served filing a separate legal action.
