Class Action Lawsuit Attorneys

A class action is a type of lawsuit that is filed to represent a group of people, also known as a class, who have been injured in the same way by a company’s actions. Class action lawsuits can include illegal hiring and salary practices, and false drug claims.

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 Actions

An 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.

Types of Class Action Lawsuits

A corporation may have engaged in systematic illegal billing or tacked on unfair regulatory fees. Individually, each consumer may have only been harmed to the tune of a hundred dollars, on average. Collectively, however, the harm can add up to millions of dollars in damages. A class action can be an excellent tool to get justice and stop these bad practices.
When a group of investors suffers due to a financial service company’s misrepresentations of the risks of a financial product — or due to concealment or other dubious/illegal activity — a securities class action can provide an effective remedy
When employers systematically mistreat their employees — for instance, by wrongly classifying them as exempt from the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) overtime rules — a class action can help workers get fair treatment and fair pay
For instance, perhaps thousands of people suffered harmful side effects from a prescription drug — or maybe hundreds got sick after being exposed to toxic effluents at a construction site. In either case, the plaintiffs can band together and file suit for compensation and other damages. Technically speaking, personal injury or defective product class action cases are actually called “Mass Torts.” They are slightly different, because everyone is hurt differently. However, personal injury class actions can be consolidated for what is called “medical monitoring.” This means that everyone who has been exposed to the defective product or toxic substance will require medical monitoring.
