Class Action Lawsuits

A class action lawsuit is a one that is filed by one or more people on behalf of a group of people who are similarly situated. A similarly situated person is any person who has suffered the same kind of harm as detailed in the case. A class action lawsuit gives a group of people who would not have had the resources to file individual claims their day in court, together, as one class.

The use of these lawsuits is widespread. Some examples of class action lawsuits:

  • injury due to dangerous medication
  • cigarettes
  • asbestos
  • defective products
  • fraudulent banking fees
  • being charged too much for a product or service

The pharmaceutical, tobacco, automotive, and several of the nation’s largest banking institutions have all been subject to class action lawsuits, and paid hundreds of millions of dollars in damages to consumers. In a class action suit, after the trial, there is a period of time where people who were affected can come forward and claim their piece of the settlement.

    “During the course of the litigation there where a number of settlement offers which the firm promptly and dutifully communicated to me and urged me not to accept. They were right. In the end they got me an enormous amount of money for my injuries and loss of earnings; far more than I could have ever imagined.”
