What is A Class Action Lawsuit

A class action lawsuit joins as many victims s possible against a single at liable (at fault) party. A class action lawsuits take place where there are multiple injured individuals with an identical caused of action against a sole defendants. Class action lawsuits are brought forth for the purposes of judicial efficiency and must include (1) a cause of action that is similar to all members of the class and (2)individual victims are numerically large enough to make it impracticable to bring individual cases. Should I Join A Class Action Lawsuit or File a Sing Party Claim: When a class action claim is settlement each individual member of the class will receive their share of the proceeds; each plaintiff in a class action lawsuit however is not permitted to a greater sum of money, regardless of the extent of their injury. Thus a person with a lesser level of injury will be awarded the same amount of compensation as individual who have suffered more extensive damages.
  • For example: If there are 100 members of a class and the per class settlement is $100,000 and your injuries amount to $150,000 you will only receive the $100,000 allotted to each member of the class.
Additionally members of a class action claim will be barred from bringing additional claims in the future. Essentially, you will be legally obligated to accept the terms of the class action settlement. In certain circumstances filing a single party claim may be more beneficial to receiving full compensation for your losses.
