Grounds for a Class-Action Lawsuit

Posted on December 27th, 2018 by Tom Zimmerman

You’ve likely heard of a class-action lawsuit, but are you familiar with the conditions that must be met in order to file such a lawsuit? Our business litigations lawyers in Chicago have years of experience with class-action lawsuits and the approach to take to have a successful case. Here is more information about class-action lawsuits and how to go about filing one.

What is It?

A class-action lawsuit involves a group of people with either the same or similar injuries caused by the same product who sue the defendant as a group. Examples of cases that cause a class-action lawsuit include defective products, consumer fraud, and corporate misconduct. If you have been injured by either a product or person and you feel others may be going through a similar situation, you may be able to file a class-action lawsuit.

Minor Injuries Add Up

You may think that you do not have a case to file a class-action lawsuit because your injuries are relatively minor. However, if many people have suffered similar small injuries, the value of these claims add up to build a strong case against the company or individual.

Examples of class-action lawsuits include a group of employees who were discriminated against in the workplace, families injured by a toxic spill, or a group of consumers who purchased a defective product and sustained injuries.
