Tampa Class Action Consumer Litigation Lawyer

Consumption drives capitalism, and businesses of all sizes depend on consumers to purchase their products. The relationship between consumers and companies is often a delicate one. Companies push their products on consumers, who may or may not need those products, at the highest possible price that they can get the consumer to hand over, while consumers are always looking for the best deal and never want to spend more than they have to. Fierce competition between businesses often means that the products and services they sell are cheap, corners have been cut to maximize profit, quasi-legal marketing schemes and advertising were used to sell those products, and laws were bent or broken to achieve the outcome. Consumers are taken advantage of in situations such as these. And, when consumers have suffered financial, psychological, or physical harm, they have the right to pursue financial compensation for their damages. Typically, the best way to do this is by joining or starting a class action lawsuit with help from an experienced Tampa class action consumer litigation lawyer.

Class Action Lawsuits Explained

If you were driving in your car and a tire blew out, causing you to crash and break your leg, you would potentially pursue compensation from the tire manufacturer as the sole plaintiff in a defective product lawsuit. If, however, that same model of tire had caused hundreds of blowouts and crashes throughout the country, you may be better served by joining a class action lawsuit, which bundles many plaintiffs, who have all suffered damages caused by the same party, together. The one or few plaintiffs who initiated the lawsuit are called the class representatives, and they make the decisions on behalf of the group at large.

Why Should I Join a Class Action Lawsuit?

Consumers do have the option of filing a lawsuit themselves against the negligent or unlawful party. However, many of these companies are extremely large, and being taken seriously as an individual may be less effective than if a large group of consumers band together. By doing so, they can pool legal resources, save on expenses due to higher efficiency, spend less personal time and energy invested in the potentially stressful case, and ensure that everyone gets the same consistent judgment. A single, large class action consumer lawsuit will deliver a more powerful impact than if dozens of consumers sued as single plaintiffs. Moreover, some types of damages are too small to pursue as a single plaintiff. If your economic harm was only $700, for example, filling a lawsuit against a large company may not be worth the effort for you or your attorney. If 10,000 other people joined your lawsuit, the case would certainly be worth pursuing, and you would end up being compensated. As such, Duke Law School describes class actions as one of the most powerful legal tools available in the United States
