What is a class action lawsuit?
A class action lawsuit means that one person, or a smaller group of people, files a suit and acts as a representative for a larger group of people. These suits can represent up to millions of people from across the nation. When a certain number of people sustain injuries due to one companies’ negligence or inaction, it can be beneficial to join a class action suit rather than pursue an individual lawsuit.
Benefits to filing a class action lawsuit vs. an individual lawsuit:
- The court system would be glutted with huge numbers of similar cases.
- Those who wouldn’t normally file suit benefit from a chance to share in awards.
- Companies are held accountable on a large scale for their harmful actions.
In most class actions, injuries are physical or financial. In addition, those who sign on to a class action typically give up their right to sue the company individually.
Awards in a Class Action Lawsuit
If the case is won, clients are most often awarded two types of separate awards, punitive and compensatory.
These awards cover the following:
- Punitive: Intended to punish the wrongdoer for the harm they caused
- Compensatory: Intended to compensate clients for the harm they experienced
