Understanding Class Action Lawsuits

Class Action Lawsuit
A class action lawsuit is one in which a large group of people who have been harmed in the same way bring a claim against the defendant together.

A class action lawsuit is one in which a large group of people who have been harmed in the same way bring a claim against the defendant together. For example, if a corporation cheats one million people out of $10 each, they have just committed fraud to the tune of $10,000,000.

If a single consumer wants to right such a wrong, bringing such a lawsuit for a small amount like $10 will be too expensive. In a class action suit, however, a small number of people act as the representatives for everyone else who has been harmed in the same way. Class action lawsuits can be very costly for a law firm to litigate, especially when they are going up against corporations or entities with "deep pockets" that stand to potentially lose millions of dollars if they lose the case.

One important fact about class actions is that a court may decide not to "certify" a case as a class action if the attorney involved has never handled a class action case.

Types of Lawsuits

Many class action lawsuits involve a factual assertion by a company about their product that is manifestly false, like claiming their milk is organic when it is not, or claiming that their computer laptop battery will last 7 hours when it falls short, or claiming their propane gas cylinder has 20 pounds of gas when it only has 15 pounds. In other cases, a defective product, such as a cell phone or computer, a medical device such as contact lenses or hip implants, or a dangerous pharmaceutical drug that has caused injury, and even death, to thousands of consumers. Consumer fraud or misconduct may be involved such as credit card fraud or misleading food labels. An employer may have refused to pay overtime wages.
