Types of Class Action Lawsuits

When a company breaks its promise about its goods and services, that may give rise to a legitimate claim for a class action lawsuit. Common examples of class action lawsuits involve injury or damage caused by:

  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • Motor vehicles
  • Medical devices
  • Home appliances
  • Toys

Consumer fraud, security fraud, unethical employment practices, purchase abuse, charging for services never provided, and other misconduct may also be cause for a class action lawsuit.
