Class Action Attorneys
What is Class Action Litigation?
Class action litigation entails an individual taking on a large private entity or corporation, in the event of that individual being injured in some way, shape, or form due to the company’s negligence. If the injury is severe, you will likely want to pursue the company and hold them accountable to the maximum extent of the law.
However, sometimes the injury is relatively minor and the potential reward is not worth paying an attorney to go after the company. In those cases, one potential solution is to organize the lawsuit as a class action. A class action allows a “class” or group of individuals to collectively pursue the same company for similar injuries, making it economically feasible for the attorney to take the case.
Class Action Lawsuit Example
Here’s an example of a good class action lawsuit: you notice a large company has been charging you an extra 50 cents per month for a service it has not been providing you for the last 12 months. Your total damages are a whopping $6.00. You’re upset about it because you feel taken advantage of and it’s not right. What are you going to do about it? You contact an attorney who tells you it’s not worth filing a lawsuit over $6.00 and, regardless, he won’t take your case.
However, let’s assume in this example that you approach an experienced class action attorney about the same issue. The attorney does some research and finds out the company has 50 million customers just like you that were overcharged by the same amount.
All of a sudden, there’s a collective $300 million in damages, and the experienced class action attorney takes your case and files the lawsuit on behalf of the “class” of 50 million customers. In the end, because of the class action structure, justice is served and you receive $6.00 back from the company.
