What is a Class Action Lawsuit?

A class action lawsuit takes place when a group of people with similar or the same types of injuries caused by a product or action sue the manufacturer or business as a group. These lawsuits are filed when injuries have occurred because of defective products include:

  • Pharmaceutical Drugs 
  • Vehicles 
  • Consumer Products
  • Medical Devices 
  • Consumer Fraud
  • Corporate Misconduct
  • Securities Fraud
  • Employment Practices

Oftentimes, class action lawsuits involve injuries that aren’t severe, but have happened to a large group of people. If the number of people affected by the product or conduct is high, it’s hard for each individual to file a personal lawsuit and because of this, a group lawsuit might begin. Additionally, members of a group lawsuit can appoint a “representative plaintiff” who represents them.

What Would be Considered a Violation of Class Action?

Class actions bring together individuals that have been harmed by a company or corporation. Some of these class action proceedings can include: 

  • Defective Products: Products malfunctioning can be extremely harmful to the consumer. If you’ve been harmed by a defective product that was deemed safe by a corporation, you might be able to join a class action suit. 
  • Pharmaceuticals or Medical Devices: Over the counter and prescription drugs are common factors in class action suits. Typically, injuries occur when being exposed to unsafe chemicals or if the company producing the drugs makes unsubstantiated claims about the product or the product ends in a harmful reaction to the consumer.
  • Employment Suits: If your employer has violated labor laws and other employees from the same company or corporate have experienced similar violations you can file a class action lawsuit. Not adhering to labor laws, discriminating, failing to pay wages or overtime, or allowing unsafe working conditions are all examples of employment violations. 
  • Automotive Industry: Cars that have been sold with safety defects or manufacturing flaws are often involved in class action suits. 
  • Environmental: Environmental issues might not always come to mind when thinking about class actions, but if a large group of people are suffering injuries due to polluted groundwater, riverways, or air, or have been exposed to toxic chemicals or pollutants a class action lawsuit can be filed on behalf of those affected. 

If you’ve been affected by these violations you might be able to seek justice for the injuries that the product, company, or corporation has caused. 

What Happens if My Rights are Violated Under Class Action?

Class actions require more work than typical civil lawsuits and seek to ensure that if you’ve been injured you receive compensation. If your rights have been violated you might receive a Notice of Class Action Lawsuit, which means that you’ve already been included in a lawsuit. Additionally, you'll most likely receive a Notice of Settlement of a Class Action if the case is settled at which point you’ll be proportioned out the sum of compensation recovered in the lawsuit.
