Class Action Lawsuit Lawyers
Sometimes big corporations make big mistakes that can leave innocent people with big problems.
A dangerous act of negligence on a large scale can tragically impact many people at once. Fortunately, victims can join forces to take on even the biggest foe and hold them accountable for the damage done.
Maybe a product wasn’t properly safety tested before being released to market, or lacks digital security leading to a major data breach. No matter the cause, those at fault for these accidents should take responsibility—not the victims.
At Morgan & Morgan, we believe in justice for all. When corporations act negligently, putting profits over people, we fight to hold them accountable.

What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?
A class action lawsuit is a legal action taken by a group of people who have suffered similar harm from a company or organization. Together, the group members sue the company or organization.
This type of lawsuit provides a way for individuals who may not have the resources to pursue a legal claim on their own to join forces and pursue their case as a group in order to seek justice and compensation.
Class action lawsuits are typically initiated by one or more individuals who are called class representatives. Representatives file a lawsuit on behalf of themselves and all others who have been similarly affected.
The members of the class benefit from consolidated claims and the possibility of a significant financial award or settlement.
In a class action, the court's decision applies to all members of the class, and any damages awarded are distributed among the class members according to a predetermined allocation method.
How Do I Know if I Qualify for a Class Action Lawsuit?
Qualifying for a class action lawsuit depends on various factors, including the nature of the harm or damages suffered and whether your situation aligns with the criteria set forth for the class.
According to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) Rule 23, there are a few attributes that can let you know what qualifies for a class action lawsuit:
- Suing individually would make it difficult to hold the responsible party accountable.
- Suing individually would not protect the plaintiffs’ rights or interests.
- There are too many plaintiffs to make suing individually practical.
- One or more parties’ experiences are representative of the class.
If you experience harm from a defective product or discriminatory action, and you discover you are not alone, you may qualify for a class action lawsuit. You may be eligible for compensation if your case is successful. You can take your case to one of Morgan & Morgan’s class action lawsuit attorneys to understand your situation.

What Types of Cases Can Be Pursued Through Class Action Lawsuits?
Class action lawsuits can address a wide range of legal issues, including consumer protection violations, defective products, data breaches, securities fraud, employment disputes, environmental pollution, civil rights, accidents with mass casualties, and more.
Successful class action cases can result in substantial pre-trial settlements. The lawsuit Enron shareholders filed after the company’s collapse resulted in a $7.2 billion settlement.
Another famous class action was the product liability case filed against Toyota for faulty brakes. It resulted in a costly recall and over a $1 billion settlement.
Civil rights class action cases typically involve requests for injunctive relief, meaning legal remedies, instead of claims for payment. One of the most famous civil rights class actions is the Brown vs. Board of Education case the Supreme Court decided in 1954, which struck down school segregation as unconstitutional.
How Much Does It Cost to Join a Class Action Lawsuit?
At Morgan & Morgan, the Fee Is Free™, and you only pay if we win. More specifically, we handle class action lawsuits on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only collect legal fees if we successfully recover compensation on your behalf. There are no upfront costs or out-of-pocket expenses for clients participating in class actions, ensuring access to justice for all.
What Can You Win From A Class Action Lawsuit?
If a class action results in a favorable outcome, you will receive compensation that is equal across the class members, with the possible exception of the lead plaintiff. These settlement claims are typically awarded in the way of financial compensation.
One factor to consider when deciding whether to join a class action is the degree of harm you have suffered relative to the rest of the class. If you believe you’ve suffered losses that are greater than other members of the class, you may be able to receive more compensation by opting out of the class action and filing an individual claim.
