About Class-Action Lawsuits
A class-action lawsuit is a type of suit when multiple individuals have evidence of harm in the same way by the same responsible party. These individuals are a “class,” and in these types of lawsuits, a lead plaintiff or plaintiffs represent the class in court.
Often in these cases, the responsible party is a large corporation. Suing a large company can be intimidating. In a class-action lawsuit, individuals may join together to take legal action, providing the plaintiffs with the opportunity to take on the responsible party as a united group.
Becoming party to a class-action lawsuit can have several benefits for the plaintiffs. Class action lawsuits can benefit plaintiffs by:
- Easing the financial burden. Ben Crump Law, PLLC works on a contingency-fee basis. You pay nothing out of pocket and nothing up front. If you have any fees, payment will only come from the settlement you may receive, and plaintiffs share any financial responsibility.
- Providing the opportunity to sue for minor awards. In situations where claims awarded may be minor, taking on the responsible party alone can be too costly. A class-action lawsuit allows individuals to band together to seek awards for small claims.
- Easing the legal burden. Suing as a class minimizes your time in court as an individual because the lead plaintiff or plaintiffs represent the involved parties.
- Ensuring fair judgments. A class-action lawsuit means the same court and the same judge hear the claims of all involved parties. With this consistency, all the cases involved will have the same judgment. If the lawsuits are separate, judgments may vary from case to case and could affect your settlement. Suing as a class ensures a consistent judgment for all involved parties.
In most cases, the limitation of time for bringing actions in a civil suit is three years from the time damages occurred. If you have lost wages, acquired medical bills, or have otherwise suffered due to a company’s negligence, reach out to the team at Ben Crump Law, PLLC today to discuss your potential options. It takes only one injured party to represent many parties and begin the process of pursuing a class-action lawsuit.
