Class Action FAQs
A class action is a lawsuit brought by a group of claimants who suffered wrongdoings in the hands of the defendant. This type of lawsuit is also known as multi-district litigation or mass tort litigation.
Since the compensation for individual injuries may pale in comparison to the cost of a lawsuit, banding a group of claimants together tips the scale in the other direction, making it a suit worth filing.
Besides the claimant attorneys, filing a lawsuit as a group allows consolidation of witnesses, evidence, and other aspects of litigation for enhanced efficiency.
If you opt in be informed that you waive your right to ever complain directly if you are not happy with the refund amount.
