Consumer Class Actions

A consumer class action is a lawsuit in state or federal court that is brought by one individual, or a few individuals, on behalf of a larger class of people similarly situated.

Typically, class actions are utilized for claims involving mass accidents or disasters, certain product defects, or violations of state or federal consumer protection laws. The idea behind a class action lawsuit is to combine the smaller-dollar claims of a large number of individuals resulting in a larger settlement which may justify the expense of litigation and improve the chances for success, especially against larger corporations.
