Consumer Class Action Lawsuits
Unlike single-plaintiff consumer lawsuits, in which an individual brings a claim against another party for damages, class action lawsuits involve multiple affected parties seeking compensation. If you have been harmed by the negligent or wrongful actions, conduct, or practices of a business, corporation, insurance provider, financial institution, manufacturer, or some other entity, it may make sense to initiate or take part in ongoing class action litigation.
Consumer class action lawsuits reduce the overall number of cases moving through the legal system. Perhaps more importantly, they allow large groups of people to hold liable parties accountable for causing widespread physical, emotional, and financial harm. Legal counsel engaging in class action lawsuits can share resources, information, and evidence to strengthen the suit. Participating parties may experience a more efficient and cost-effective process than they would have had they initiated single-plaintiff lawsuits.
To successfully bring a class action lawsuit, the group filing the claim must demonstrate how the complaint fits the criteria required to file this type of legal action. The court will then review the arguments presented by both the plaintiff and the defendant before ruling whether the case can proceed as a class action. If so, the court will then certify the “class” by determining whether the plaintiff and their legal counsel adequately represent the entire class, or all parties affected.
