A class action lawsuit allows an unlimited number of injured or otherwise negatively affected individuals who have suffered the same harm to file one lawsuit to obtain damages or relief. Class action lawsuits are intended to promote access to justice: it may be challenging for one person on their own to have the time and resources needed to start a legal claim to obtain compensation for their losses. However, where a group of people who have been through a similar situation join together and a class action is certified on their behalf (via a representative plaintiff), they can collectively pursue claims that may be prohibitive to pursue individually.
Generally, due to the scope of the issue alleged in a class action and the number of people affected, class action lawsuits can represent millions of dollars in liability to the organizations they are filed against. For an organization facing a class action claim, this can be overwhelming and will require the services of a firm with significant experience defending these challenging and complex matters.
