Understanding the Benefits of Class Action Lawsuits
Under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) Rule 23, filing a class action requires that all class members have common facts of their case. They need to all have the same grievance against the same company or defendant. For example, alleging a drug company knowingly marketed a drug that caused kidney damage.
Class action lawsuits may be based on a number of subjects, including:
- Defective products
- Environmental hazards
- Discriminatory practices
Class action lawsuits make it possible for any number of individuals to take on large corporations and hold them responsible for their actions, because the expenses are shared among the members of the class who join the lawsuit. None of the plaintiffs pay attorney’s fees up front. Instead, the attorneys recover their fees from the compensation awarded to the class of plaintiffs, if they win the case. In some cases, the class receives additional compensation specifically to cover attorney’s fees.
Not all members of the class of plaintiffs in a class action have to go to court and present their case, either. Instead, a few cases serve as class representatives. These plaintiffs present their cases in court and represent the entire class. Others can focus on healing from their injuries and await the verdict in the trial from home, if they wish.

Compensation Available Through a Class Action Award or Settlement
Ben Crump Law, PLLC represents injured individuals who have a case to pursue compensation from a company or liable party. This may include joining a class and participating in a class action lawsuit. The award or settlement from this type of case could allow you to recover compensation for losses that include:
- Medical treatment and care costs, both current and future
- Lost wages, benefits, and reduced ability to earn
- Other related expenses
- Pain and suffering and other intangible losses
- Attorney’s fees, in some cases
In some cases, the losses you recover through a class action may be wrongful death losses. This may occur if you are a surviving family member of someone who passed away as a result of the defendant’s actions. We can help you understand the losses you may expect to recover based on your specific case, if so.
Statutes of Limitations May Apply in Class Action Cases
It can sometimes be difficult to determine the deadline for filing a class action lawsuit, especially since there are also additional deadlines for joining the class, getting class certification, and more. In general, the statute of limitations that will apply in a class action suit comes from the state where the plaintiffs initially file the suit.
If the class action is in a New York court, for example, CPLR 214 would generally dictate a three-year window to file suit in an injury claim, product liability claim, or another similar type of case. However, the start date for when the clock began counting down may also be difficult to discern.
When you contact our team about a possible case, we can help you understand the time limits that may apply in these cases.
