Philadelphia Class Action Lawsuit Attorney
There are certain misconceptions about what class actions are and what they can accomplish. Class action litigation is when a group of people, or a class, bring a lawsuit, or action, against one or more defendants. Class actions can occur in a variety of circumstances, but are often brought in claims involving:
- Westmoreland Hospital unneeded stents
- Drug litigation (pharmaceuticals)
- Insurance litigation
- Defective consumer products
- Royalties from gas companies
In many class actions, the actual financial injury may not be worth pursuing individually, due to the time and expense involved in litigation. However, when substantial numbers of people suffer the same financial injury, a class action lawyer can be of great assistance in presenting a claim. Therefore, most class action claims involve a large corporation or business taking advantage of large groups of individuals. Further, membership in a class costs nothing. In class action litigation, your attorney is only paid if he or she is successful in the claim.
