Class Action Retention Campaigns

Class action lawsuits occur when a group of people decides to take action against a company for the same injury or financial harm. A class action is filed by one individual on behalf of a large number of individuals that are known as a class.

The class action is resolved in a single proceeding instead of multiple proceedings by multiple plaintiffs. Once a settlement is obtained, it is distributed equally amongst the class members.

Class actions are not the same as mass tort lawsuits. Mass tort lawsuits are filed by individual plaintiffs and are managed by a federal court judge.

There are several categories in which class actions are commonly brought:

  • Environmental Claims – Class action suits can be brought against various entities for contaminating air, soil, bodies of water, and underground water sources.
  • Finance Claims – Class actions can be brought on behalf of victims of predatory lending or securities fraud.
  • Employment Claims – Common types of employment class action lawsuits can include sexual harassment, discriminatory hiring or pay, and hostile workplace claims.
  • Product Defect Claims – These types of claims are brought against product manufacturers for products that cause widespread and serious harm. Successful outcomes can prevent companies from putting customers at risk in the future.
  • Claims against Pharmaceutical Companies – Class action lawsuits are often brought against drug companies for defective drugs and devices. These types of class actions can lead to the development of safer drugs and medical devices in the future.

Many attorneys and law firms would like to pursue class action matters in any or all of these categories. However, these firms often do not have the resources to handle the intake process for the myriad of consumers seeking assistance, and for the volume of calls that certifying a class would involve.

Frequently Asked Questions About Class Action Lawsuits

How Do I Join a Class Action?

For most class actions, you do not need to take any action to join the class action lawsuit. In most cases, you will be notified that you are a member of a class and that you will be included in the class action lawsuit unless you choose to opt-out of the suit.

In some cases, however, you will be required to opt-in to the lawsuit. You will most likely receive instructions on how to opt-in with your class action notice that you receive in the mail or by e-mail.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Class Action Attorney?

In most class action lawsuits, attorneys do not get paid unless a settlement is reached with the corporation or company. When a class action lawsuit does settle, the handling attorneys receive a percentage of the settlement or judgment.

What Happens When the Class Action Lawsuit Settles?

If the class action attorney is able to retain a settlement in favor of the class, the class members will be notified of the settlement agreement. The notice is usually sent by mail or by e-mail. Sometimes, notice will be provided by publication.

The defendant will likely be required to pay the settlement into a settlement fund for distribution to class members. The class members will typically then complete claims forms through a website created with the purpose of distributing the settlement funds. Class members may be asked to provide proof that they are entitled to a piece of the settlement proceeds.
