Representing Clients in Class Action Lawsuits Across the US
Many large companies put profits before consumers’ rights. Many multi-million-dollar corporations continue to do this, even when they know they are violating consumers’ rights, especially consumer rights under federal law. One way to make your voice heard is to join forces with other consumers who have suffered similar harm.
Consumer Class Actions Gain Strength in Numbers
This is the general basis for a class action, which is a lawsuit where one person (or a small group of people) is allowed to represent the legal interests of others who have been affected by the same and suffered a similar harm. While each individual claim is inherently separate, there are some definite benefits of people joining forces against the same defendant. Class action lawsuits allow courts to provide the greatest scope of relief and justice to the most consumers possible in an efficient manner.
When is a Class Action Lawsuit an Option?
If you were injured by a large business, insurance company, credit reporting agency, background reporting agency, debt collector, or employer, you may have the option of participating in class action lawsuit.
We have prosecuted class actions involving hundreds, and sometimes, thousands and even millions of people who had similar claims against a common defendant. The more people involved, the greater the consumers’ collective voice. Winning a class action lawsuit is an effective way to compensate a broad range of consumers, prevent corporations from hurting other consumers, and forcing companies to comply with the law.
Successful Class Actions
Some of the most successful class actions have been those brought against credit reporting agencies, debt collection agencies, employers, insurance companies and the background reporting agencies.
A class action lawsuit may be an option when a credit reporting agency, background reporting agency, debt collector, creditor or employer engages in a pattern and practice of wrongful conduct. Standard policies and procedures that violate consumer protection statutes such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) can be certified as class actions.
We are not intimidated by billion dollar corporations. We are dedicated to helping consumers and employees recover money damages.
