Environmental Class Actions Lawsuit

Every day it seems that more and more Americans are fighting environmental disasters caused by large corporations who have little to no regard for those who live in the surrounding areas. From large oil spills to chemical dumping in the local community's water supply, the people and local wildlife are constantly suffering from these negligent corporations and their harmful actions. But it doesn't have to end there for you. To learn more about environmental class-action lawsuits, and if you may be able to join one, contact one of our environmental class-action attorneys to see how they may be able to help you enter a lawsuit today.

What Is an Environmental Class-Action Lawsuit?

An environmental class-action lawsuit allows a larger group of individuals who have all separately experienced a similar injury or illness due to toxins or pollutants in their environment to sue those parties responsible, i.e., the defendant, jointly for justice. An environmental class-action would be when a community has been affected by an oil spill, or a local water source has been contaminated due to improper waste disposal from a company. Suppose multiple residents in this community have experienced harmful or even life-threatening side effects and want to seek justice. In that case, they may form a coalition of plaintiffs to file a singular lawsuit against the party responsible for contaminating their water supply. 

What Are the Necessary Class Action Certifications? 

We understand how difficult it can be to ensure your case is accepted into an environmental class action. For your convenience, we’ve gone ahead and broken down some of the key information you need to know whether or not you may be eligible to submit your case. In order to move forward with an environmental tort class action, your case needs to have a few key prerequisite certifications. First, the plaintiff must have the four requirements in Rule 23(a):

  • Numerosity: the class is so numerous that the joiner of all members is impracticable.
  • Commonality: the questions of the law or facts common to the class.
  • Typicality: defenses or claims of the representative parties that are typical of the claims or defenses of the class.
  • Adequacy: when the representative parties will fairly and adequately protect the interests of the class. 

Second, pending the requirements of Rule 23(a): are satisfied, the plaintiff must meet the requirements for Rule 23(b). Under Rule 23(b)(3), a plaintiff must be able to prove that the common issues of the law or fact predominate over any individual questions and that a class is superior to any other available methods for fair and efficient assessment. Along with satisfying the Rule 23 requirements, courts that consider any environmental tort class actions may also address the ascertainability to determine how and whether the class is defined.  

If your case has been denied, contact our law firm today in order to have one of our environmental tort class action attorneys review your case.

FAQ

Environmental Class Actions FAQs

  • Could I Receive Compensation?

    If you are participating in a class-action lawsuit, you may be entitled to legal compensation if your case wins. But when it comes to calculating the value of your case, it all depends on a few key factors: the events of your accident, the severity of your injuries, and limits on your insurance policy coverage, among other things. The most common forms of compensation our clients receive for environmental class actions lawsuits include, but are not limited to the following:

    • Wrongful death
    • Lost wages
    • Loss of consortium
    • Pain and suffering 
    • Medical bills

    In order to better determine the possible compensation you could receive for your environmental class action case, we urge you to contact an attorney to have your case reviewed.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
