Miami Class Action Consumer Litigation Lawyer

When a consumer suffers harm or an injury as a result of another party’s acts or omissions, that consumer may be able to file a lawsuit in order to seek compensation for his or her losses. When we talk about the harm suffered by a consumer, it may be physical harm, or it may be a different type of harm. For example, a consumer might sustain a physical injury as a result of a defective product, or a consumer may suffer a psychological harm as a result of fraudulent debt collection practices. In some situations, many consumers suffer the same or a similar type of injury.

When more than one consumer experiences harm because of another party’s acts or omissions, it might be a good idea to consider filing a class action lawsuit or joining a class in order to be eligible for compensation. We want to provide you with more information about class action consumer litigation and to emphasize the importance of getting in touch with a Miami class action consumer litigation lawyer if you think you might have a case.

What is a Class Action Lawsuit in Miami?

Class action lawsuits can arise under federal or state law, but a majority of class actions are federal claims that are brought in federal courts. According to the Cornell Legal Information Institute (LII), a class action is a device that allows multiple plaintiffs to file and prosecute a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group, or ‘class.’ As the LII underscores, a class action allows courts to manage lawsuits that would otherwise be unmanageable if each class member were required to be joined in the lawsuit as a named plaintiff.

In other words, class action lawsuits allow a court to hear one case with multiple plaintiffs, when the plaintiffs have suffered the same injury because of the defendant’s acts or omissions. All of the named members of the “class” have the same claim against the defendant.

Common Types of Miami Class Action Consumer Litigation

Class action lawsuits in Miami can be initiated for a wide variety of harms or injuries, including but not limited to the following:

  • Transportation accidents;
  • Product liability and product defects;
  • Dangerous drugs;
  • Consumer fraud;
  • Unfair debt collection practices;
  • Employee wage and hour claims; and
  • Toxic torts.

Certifying a Miami Consumer Class Action

Under Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Rule 1.220 of the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, for a “class” to be “certified,” or eligible to proceed with a claim, all of the following elements must be met:

  • Numerosity;
  • Commonality;
  • Typicality; and
  • Adequacy.
