Class Action Attorney
What is a Class Action?
A class action lawsuit is a form of litigation in which one (or more) person(s) seeks to help a group of people who have suffered from the same wrongdoing. Rules around the county allow one individual to represent a large group of people to collectively bring a claim against a common defendant. Typically, the individual bringing the claim has suffered economic harm as a result of an illegal action, improper policy, or product defect. By combining all of these individuals’ complaints into a group, or “class action”, individual plaintiffs who otherwise might not be able to afford their own representation or who have only suffered a small amount of damages are able to seek compensation by way of a collective lawsuit.
Common Types of Class Actions
- Product Liability Claims
- Consumer Fraud
- Banking & Financial Services Fraud
Seeking Representation in a Class Action?
Steven Goren has handled numerous class actions, has lectured lawyers on class actions and helped author the National Association of Consumer Advocates’ Standards and Guidelines for Litigating and Settling Consumer Class Actions.
A good case involves a business that is well established and won’t disappear or declare bankruptcy as soon as a lawsuit is filed. Ideally, many consumers will have suffered the same loss, even if no one consumer has suffered a great harm. There are many factors that must be examined in deciding whether to bring a class action. Examples of possible cases include using the word “free” without disclosing in the ad all the terms and conditions (the cellular phone companies regularly violate this law), unauthorized fees (e.g. a mortgage company making you pay to find out the payoff amount, or to record the mortgage release), and unfair or hidden charges for using a service. Also, bank fees can sometimes violate state or federal laws. If a bank has charged you an unfair amount, we’d like to hear from you.
