Class action lawsuits are one of the most important ways people have to protect themselves from corporate misconduct. As a consumer, you have a right to expect the products you buy to be safe to use. State and federal laws are in place to protect us from defective or dangerous products, and companies have a responsibility to produce safe products. Unfortunately, companies often put a profit above the safety and all too often, people are injured as the result of everyday products.
Many companies also engage in deceptive business practices. False advertising, unconscionable pricing, and charging for services never provided are some of the many unfair and deceptive practices large corporations use to defraud consumers. State and federal laws, however, provide consumers with broad protection from unfair and illegal business practices.
A class action is a lawsuit where a large number of people who have suffered similar injuries join together to sue another entity, usually a large corporation. A class action allows that group of persons to unite and bring a larger, single suit to achieve justice for all who are involved, saving time and resources for the judicial system while increasing their chances for success. These cases may involve consumer fraud, defective products or exposure to toxic substances. Class action lawsuits are one of the only ways to get a corporation’s attention and to hold them accountable.
