WHAT IS CLASS ACTION?
Class actions lawsuits are intended to help individuals pursue relatively
small claims against large corporations. An individual consumer who suffered
minimal damages due to a big company’s wrongful conduct may not
want to spend the time and resources necessary to prosecute his or her
claim and bring about justice, which means the big company may get away
with its wrongful conduct.
With a class action suit, an individual can pursue his or her claim on
behalf of a "class" of numerous other individuals who suffered
similar damages. When combining all the individual claims, the action
becomes feasible, the damages become significant, and justice can be restored.
The large company can no longer escape liability.
Class actions are generally allowed whenever a large group of individuals
suffer similar damages. Consumers who paid for the same defective product,
employees who suffered from the same employer misconduct, and tax-payers
subjected to the same unconstitutional tax are just some examples of cases
where a class may be certified.
