In a class action lawsuit, a group of people who have suffered the same or similar harm come together to sue the person, corporation or entity responsible. These class action cases can be highly beneficial to you and the other plaintiffs, as it brings all of the victims together in a single action against the responsible party, which can cut down on litigation costs and may bring awareness to the issue much more dramatically than if you were to file as an individual.

When Are Class Action Lawsuits Necessary?
Class action lawsuits may be appropriate when there has been widespread damage or losses inflicted on a large group of people. Examples of class action cases include:
- Defective products
- Retirement benefits claims
- Fraudulent charges, fees or add-ons
- Illegal plant closings or mass lay-offs
- Violations of securities laws and other remedial statutes

Typically, a class action is brought against a very powerful corporation. These types of companies have their own very powerful attorneys protecting them.
