Why File a Class Action Lawsuit?
A class action lawsuit is a type of civil lawsuit in which the claims and rights of many people are combined and decided in a single case. Typically, specific plaintiffs are named in the class action lawsuit to represent the claims of other class members so that everyone with the same complaint or injury does not have to file individual lawsuits. In a class-action suit, all these complaints are consolidated into one case.
There are usually several benefits to filing a class action lawsuit as opposed to an individual civil complaint or claim. Some benefits can range in the inexpensive cost of filing the suit to the great recovery amount the plaintiff will receive.
5 Steps for Filing a Class Action Lawsuit
Here is a list of some of the elements and actions that must be taken as part of the process of filing a class action lawsuit.
- The complaint: In order to file a class action lawsuit, the same type of harm must have been done to a group of people. The size of the complaint will not affect whether or not you have a class action lawsuit. What's important is that a group of people suffered some type of loss.
- Significant number of victims: There must be so many claimants that it is not reasonable for each to file an individual claim.
- Class action attorney: Make sure you speak with a knowledgeable attorney preferbly a California lawyer who has recent experience handling cases similar to yours.
- Representative: One or more persons must be named to represent all of the claimants in the lawsuit. This is the Class Representative.
- Demands: You will have to decide what type of compensation you want. In most cases, a class action lawsuit will result in financial compensation.
Types of Class Action Lawsuits
A class action case is strengthened when there is more than one person or a class of people filing the suit. Cases that present an obvious wrongdoing can receive major attention and sends a direct message to the offenders. Below are the most common class action lawsuits.
Consumer Class Actions: These types of actions are generally brought when a group of consumers complain about being harmed by a corporation's systematic and illegal practices.
Product Liability Class Actions: Cases involving defective products can be brought to the courts such as a person suffering severe side effects from a weight loss pill or blood pressure medication.
Employment Class Actions: Employment class action lawsuits are typically filed on behalf of many employees of a company for claims ranging from complaints against workplace discrimination or sexual harassment to unpaid wages, illegal break times or overtime pay.
Winnings From Class Action Lawsuits
The compensation sought by consumers through class action litigation varies with each lawsuit. The potential value of your class action suit will depend on the severity of the losses suffered by the victims.
Types of losses that will be considered in a class action lawsuit include:
- Damages for personal injury
- Litigation costs
- Compensation for economic losses
The compensatory damages from a class action lawsuit will often be distributed among the class members based on the damages each member suffered. In some cases, punitive damages may also be awarded.
Class Action Suits Change Laws
Class action lawsuits, that are usually classified as civil litigation disputes are necessary and beneficial to the public good. Often, states with their budget woes and depletion of resources do not have the ability to police illegal activities perpetrated by large corporations.
However, class action lawsuits empower ordinary citizens who have been wronged to enforce the law and seek justice. Another important goal of these lawsuits is to encourage corporations to comply with the law.
In September of 2017 hackers were able to access the social security numbers, addresses and drivers license information of over 143 million Equifax users. Equifax is one of the three largest credit companies and holds over 820 million consumers in their database.
The lawyers of Bisnar Chase have followed this case and believed that it was only right to help and protect the people whose information has been comprimised.
Without class action lawsuits and excellent legal representation, consumers do not have a realistic way to fight back against large corporations.
