Consumer Class Actions & Representation
American consumers are more often than not those who need to file class actions after a third-party has caused them financial damage, physical harm, or another form of significant wrongdoing or inconvenience. This is due to the fact that if a single item or system that affects one consumer will therefore have the potential to affect all consumers. Rather than requiring one company to go through litigation hundreds or thousands of times, a class action is used to make the process simpler and faster for both the plaintiffs and the defendants.
Reasons a consumer might want to opt into a class action include:
- Dangerous products: A poorly manufactured product can end up hurting multitudes of people before the cause of the harm is pinpointed. It seems that recent news headlines have been populated with more and more dangerous product consumer class actions lately, such as hoverboard toys that burst into flames when charging.
- Data breaches: Retail businesses and other companies that take a consumer’s private information to complete a purchase have to protect that data, no matter the cost. When a data breach occurs, such as when a hacker bypasses security software or a disgruntled employee leaks the data intentionally, the consumers affected have the right to be compensated for potential losses and privacy violations.
- Recalls: In some cases, a product is recalled without it actually causing physical harm to consumers. A financial impact is felt instead as thousands of customers are inconvenienced or left with an unusual product. A famous non-injury-related recall in recent news was the Volkswagen diesel engine recall.
