Join A Class Action Lawsuit To Seek Justice

Many employees, individuals and even owners of small businesses find themselves facing financial damages or personal injury, resulting from the negligence or misconduct of a large corporation. In these cases, it is frequently a more effective legal strategy to stop the injustice by joining together with other aggrieved plaintiffs in a civil action.

What Is A Class Action Lawsuit?

A class action is a lawsuit in which one person or a small group of persons serves as "class representative (s)" to bring an action on behalf of a whole "class" of people who are similarly situated, i.e., injured in the same manner by the same defendant or defendants. A class action lawsuit can involve as few as 40 people or as many as several hundred thousand.

Some common examples of class action lawsuits include:

  • Warranty or guarantee litigation against a manufacturer or distributor who fails to honor a warranty or guarantee included with the product purchase or sold separately as an add-on contract
  • Consumer litigation against insurance companies who deny or reduce claims or otherwise fail to meet the terms of their policy coverage
  • Product liability lawsuits against the manufacturer of a defective or dangerous product that has been determined to be the cause of injury or death to consumers
  • Employment litigation filed by employees of a large corporation for violating federal or state wage and hour laws, or violating civil rights such as discrimination or failing to provide protections under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Whistleblower and "qui tam" lawsuits filed against a business accused of fraud on a government on a contract
  • Civil rights violations against a private corporation or government entity

Bill Hopkins served as the co-chairman of the AAJ Class Action Litigation Group in 2012.

These are just some examples. If you have a grievance against a corporation or government agency based on an injustice that is causing you or your family financial damages, denied access, a violation of your civil rights or personal injury, you may not be alone. Starting or joining in a class action lawsuit may be your best legal recourse. Settlements and verdicts are often significantly higher than individual lawsuits, and class representatives may receive additional compensation from the outcome.
