In a class action lawsuit, individuals who have been similarly harmed by a large company band together and work with a law firm to file a lawsuit on behalf of the entire class of people. Generally, those suing have been affected by fraud, a defective product, deceptive practice or illegal conduct. Class actions have been filed against drug companies, insurance companies, car manufacturers and utility companies to name a few. When a single consumer attempts to go up against a big company, they may be more easily defeated or the expenses of litigating are prohibitive. By joining forces, consumers have the leverage they need to rise up against large companies and receive a fair chance at justice. The companies are forced to take notice and address and resolve the claims.
