Consumer Class Actions
While personal injury cases typically involve one individual filing suit against another person or entity, a consumer class action suit is a lawsuit where a group of plaintiffs unite against one defendant, frequently a manufacturer who has created a faulty product. This is typically appropriate when a company has made a faulty product that has harmed many of those who used or purchased it. In this way, the victims can all take action together against the negligent company, not only to increase efficiency, but also to improve the likelihood of mounting a challenge that will not be overwhelmed by a large company’s legal team.
If you or someone you know has been injured by a faulty product, you may want to consider joining a consumer class action lawsuit and fight for financial compensation. You need a qualified attorney on your side to help you every step of the way. Contact the Daily Aljian today at 949-861-2524 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your legal options.
