- > What is a Class Action?
Class actions are lawsuits brought to protect many people who have been impacted by the same problem. For example, a class action lawsuit could be brought on behalf of everyone who:
- Bought the same defective product
- Was billed for the same unauthorized charges
- Saw the same deceptive advertising
- Suffered losses due to investment in the same financial product
- Purchased a product or service at an inflated price due to the same anticompetitive conduct
Are Many Needed for a Lawsuit?
If you are having problems with a company—whether it’s your retailer, a company you bought stock in, or even your employer—many other people may well be having the same problems. A class action suit is often a good solution in these situations because it can allow large groups of people spread across the U.S. to all benefit from a single case.
Even though class actions often help hundreds or thousands of people, it does not take that many people to get started. Instead, class actions often begin when a single person who has been wronged steps forward. To speak with one of our class action lawyers, call toll-free 1.866.981.4800 or contact us.
