What is a class action lawsuit?
A class action lawsuit can be set in motion with the help of multiple people. These types of lawsuits can be brought by one person or the collective action of a few people on behalf of a larger group. When acts such as mass fraud are committed, it can be too expensive for one person to file an individual lawsuit especially when the losses that they experienced are minor. This makes it better to consider a class action lawsuit. With the collective help of a few people, the lawsuit will not be as costly for an individual.
How can a class action lawsuit benefit me?
If you have been a victim of an issue that involves multiple people, a class action or collective lawsuit may be a good fit. Through these kinds of lawsuits, you will not have to cover the cost of legal fees alone. This saves you time and money. Class action lawsuits can be more efficient than individual lawsuits due to the involvement of multiple people. If you have few resources to provide for the case, a class action lawsuit can help you reach the outcome you desire.
Who is the leader for the class action lawsuit?
When the lawsuit is filed, the person who files it will be named the lead plaintiff. As the lead plaintiff, they are supposed to represent the rest of the individuals involved in the class action lawsuit. During court proceedings, they will serve the role of standing in for all those involved. The lead plaintiff will have to consult with attorneys, monitor litigation, attend meetings and possible dispositions and even appear at trial for some cases.
