Class Action Lawsuits – A Way to effect Major Change
A class action lawsuit is a form of legal action in which a large group of people collectively bring a claim to court and/or in which a group of defendants is being sued. Class actions are governed by federal and state court rules.
A class action is only certified when certain requirements are met:
Large numbers of Class Members
Class Members – Similar Claim
Same Claims & Same Defenses Applicable
Representatives Provide Fair and Adequate Protection for the Class
Why are Class Actions Effective?
The people who do not like class action lawsuits are running big companies with lots of lawyers at their disposal. They know that the average person, when cheated out of a relatively small amount of money, cannot afford the time and expense of an individual lawsuit.
Class action lawsuits are an important part of fairness. In a class action, people who have been similarly harmed by a big company can band together, find a law firm and file a lawsuit on behalf of the entire class of people.
Big companies would prefer to fight consumers one at a time, knowing that most people cannot launch a major drug recall, consumer protection or other lawsuit on their own. Class action lawsuits level the playing field and give consumers the leverage they need against companies that harm consumers physically and financially.
