What is a Class Action Lawsuit?
Class action lawsuits are brought by plaintiffs who represent a large group of individuals (the class) with similar claims. Typically, our law office works on a contingency basis, which means that we will receive a portion of the total award if the suit is successful. A class action is a lawsuit where a large group of people collectively bring a claim to court. A single person who has been injured may bring a class action on behalf of everyone who has been harmed. Usually, once the action has been filed, many other people who have been injured join the class action.
Types of Class Action Cases Strategic Legal Practices Handles
When certain defects, misrepresentations, or other wrongful acts are widespread, but damages are small, it may make sense to file a class action lawsuit, as this often results in a better overall settlement. Our office files class actions for issues including:
- Automotive Defect Claims
- Unfair Business Practices
- Fraudulent or Misleading Advertising
- Wage and Hour Claims
- Robo Calls and Spam Text Messages
If a Person Has a Legal Claim, How Can they Benefit From a Class Action Suit?
If a class action suit is favorably settled by negotiation, mediation, or a jury trial, the affected class members receive monetary compensation. Not all class members, however, receive the same amount of monetary awards – those more affected by the claims are given a higher amount than the members who suffered less harm or inconvenience.
