Bradenton Class Action Consumer Litigation Lawyer

Consumers have a right to be treated fairly and in good faith. When someone else breaches that duty, it may be necessary to retain an attorney. When a business breaches the same duty to multiple people, it may warrant filing a class action consumer litigation lawsuit. Class action cases can be complex and expensive. You need a Bradenton class action consumer litigation lawyer who has experience handling class action consumer litigation cases.

What is Class Action Consumer Litigation?

A class action lawsuit allows someone to pursue a claim that is ordinarily too small to litigate on their own, depending on the allegations and potential number of class members. A group of people come together who have the same or similar injuries that were caused by the same product.

This is quite different from standard litigation where one party is suing the other and everyone has to be present in court. With a class action lawsuit, once the class certified by the court, the attorney will handle all court appearances and all parties are represented collectively by a member of the class.

Instead of each party bringing their own lawsuit, the class action does it for them. In most cases, you’ll see a large group of plaintiffs, typically 40 or more. Rather than taking all the court’s time litigating these matters separately, a class action allows the court to decide through a single proceeding.

However, this doesn’t mean the case will be resolved quickly. In fact, it’s quite the opposite in some instances. It can take years for the court to sort through the circumstances of each class member, figure out what the wrongdoing was, and decide on potential remedies.

So, why file a class action lawsuit then? Because, individually, people may have a difficult time winning their case, or decide the hassle is not worth it. Collectively, the group of wronged people has a much stronger voice and a more meaningful claim. Class action cases are more than just a group of people suing someone. In some instances, a class action suit can rewrite history and change society as a whole.

Examples of Class Action Consumer Litigation

To understand what class action consumer litigation is, it’s helpful to apply the concept to real world examples. Some landmark class action lawsuits have included:

  • Brown v. Board of Education: Ended school segregation, and the Supreme Court held that the “separate but equal” standard was not constitutional.
  • Target Data Breach: Back in 2013, Target suffered a massive data breach that allowed hackers to steal personal information belonging to over 70 million customers.
  • Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill: The Deepwater Horizon was an oil rig situated in the Gulf of Mexico. In April 2010, it exploded, leaving eleven dead and dumping millions of barrels of oil into the sea. The government pursued both civil and criminal charges against the oil company. In addition, a class action suit was filed that included over 100,000 claims from property owners, fishermen, and other people who were directly affected by the spill.
