Class action lawsuits include a group of people (class) in similar circumstances that bring suit against party. In most cases, class actions involve consumers suing a large business. For instance, legal action involving the suing of manufacturer’s of dangerous medical products often become class action suits. Because there are so many plaintiffs, combining the suits into a class action suit saves time and strain on the legal system, and makes justice easier for everyone involved.
Class action attorneys play a pivotal role in shaping the outcome of cases throughout New Jersey and elsewhere. In a class action suit, plaintiffs have suffered similar harm. Streamlining the process allows judges and juries to make a decision about liability based on all of the evidence, as opposed to on a case by case basis.
If you have experienced injury or wrong-doing and you believe you are not alone, a class action lawsuit might be the right option for you. Law firms consider several factors before determining if class action is appropriate, including;
- Number of people affected by the illegal practice
- Common legal issues of those affected
- Similar claims among those in the class action
- Is the firm willing and able to represent the interests of the entire class?
