What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?

A class action is a procedural device that allows one or more plaintiffs to file and prosecute a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group, or "class." Put simply, this device allows courts to manage lawsuits that would otherwise be unmanageable if each class member (individuals who have suffered the same wrong at the hands of the defendant) were required to be joined in the lawsuit as a named plaintiff.

We are currently working on class action lawsuits regarding:

  • Bogus Fees: If a company charges outrageous hidden fees they did not properly disclose, you may be able to file a lawsuit. Contact a lawyer if you receive a bill that is much higher than you expected. Car rental company Turo is currently being sued for this practice.
  • ERISA Claims: The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) governs long-term disability befits through many employers. If you have been wrongly denied disability benefits, we can help.
  • TCPA Claims: The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) prohibits marketing and sales companies from using automated and prerecorded calls to contact potential customers. Companies that use spam calls illegally, such as travel companies and debt collectors, can be sued.

Should I Be a Class Representative?

The class action is used generally when numerous people have suffered the same or similar injuries. Often many of the individuals' injuries were relatively minor, such that they might not pursue legal redress on their own. Together, however, the value of the claims of the class add up, and suing as a class means consolidating the attorneys, defendant, evidence, witnesses, and most other aspects of the litigation.

If the number of people affected by the product or conduct is high, it becomes impractical or even impossible for them to file individual lawsuits. When a class action is permitted, the group files the lawsuit with a representative plaintiff—called a "named plaintiff" or "lead plaintiff"—at the forefront.
