Bringing a class action law suit against a major corporation or drug manufacturer requires a law firm whose lawyers have unique expertise and experience in these areas.
A class action lawsuit joins together a group of people or companies with common interests in a matter who file their claims as one entity. Class actions can obtain remedies for defective products (e.g., appliances and building materials), recalled drugs, or unfair business practices. Also, small businesses may bring a lawsuit against large corporations to address unfair methods of competition. Depending on the case, we bring class actions in either state or federal court. The class action lawyers at Morgan & Morgan have handled a variety of class action suits involving many potential plaintiffs, as well as mass torts. Feel free to fill out our free case evaluation form if you are interested in joining a class action lawsuit.
In a class action lawsuit, a named plaintiff stands in for a group of similarly situated plaintiffs affected by the actions of a defendant or group of defendants. For example, when a large number of consumers are exposed to a potentially dangerous or defective product (product liability) such as Bausch & Lomb Contact Solution, Phenylproenolamine (PPA), or the Ortho Evra Contraceptive Patch, a class action lawsuit may be brought on their behalf to seek compensation together.
Class action lawsuits require the financial resources to be able to target large corporate conglomerates.
