What is a class Action lawsuit? Because there is strength in numbers, a class action lawsuit is a powerful tool that individuals can use to enforce the law against large corporate firms and government entities. Are there enough people affected by the illegal practice to warrant a class action? – This is Numerosity – if enough people join the class action lawsuit one of our lawyers or attorney groups will agree to accept cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not charge a fee unless you win.
A class action lawsuit allows one person or a small group of people to be represented by a law firm and sue on behalf of hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of different people with similar complaints.
Attorneys decide if the cause is broad enough to attract enough people to make it worth while to sue a large company. There are several factors that law firms must consider prior to bringing a lawsuit as a class action: Do the injured people share common legal issues. Are the claims of the person(s) bringing the suit typical of those of the entire class. Will the law firm bringing the case be willing and able to represent the interests of the entire class action group. It has to be a win-win lawsuit action.
