Class Actions

Often, if a company has wronged you, it has wronged many others. While there are times where it makes sense for you to pursue your own case on an individual basis, there are others where your damages are too small for this approach to make sense. This is where class actions come into play. Class actions allow you to aggregate your small claims with the small claims of a bunch of others in a similar position to file one big claim.

Whether your case involves consumer fraud, Fair Debt Collection violations, of Robocalls/Junk faxes, it may be possible to bring it as a class action. I will, in certain situations, discuss this possibility with you in any consultation we may have. Don’t be intimidated by a company or corporation. A Class Action gives you a real chance to fight back on behalf of the “little guy.”

If you believe you may have a potential class action claim, please contact us.

FAQ

How do New Jersey Class Action lawsuits work?

Depending on your circumstance, a class action lawsuit may be an optimal choice. Because of the complexity of lawsuits, each case requires a different approach. When multiple parties have been affected by the same thing that harmed you, the best solution may be to file Class Action. It only takes one person to start a class action lawsuit–the other affected people can be discovered after the lawsuit is filed. This is because when you file a Class Action, you are simply saying “I am bringing this case on behalf of myself and everyone else who was hurt in the same way I was hurt.” At a later date, the Court will need to evaluate this claim before deciding whether to “certify” the class (for example, the court considers whether there are enough people out there for a class action to make sense, and whether those people can be found).

Why do a Class Action?

Let’s say you have a potential case against Conglomo Corp., a $50 billion company. Conglomo Corp. sold you a service for $10 and then, because Conglomo Corp. wanted more money, decided to charge you an extra $10 just because. Your damages are $10. Who sues over $10? It costs more to hire a lawyer. And even if you do, why could Conglomo Corp. care?
But if Conglomo Corp. charged all 10 million of its customers the extra $10, suddenly they’re looking at $100 million or more in damages if you bring your case on behalf of all 10 million customers–and that hurts.
If your individual damages are small or if you just want to hold a wrongdoer accountable in a way that matters to them and benefits others who were similarly wronged, a Class Action may be the way to go.
