If You Were Harmed by a Large Corporation, You Probably Are Not Alone
Many types of cases can be handled through a legal procedure know as a class action. A class action is best suited for a matter in which numerous individuals suffered harm by the acts of another person or entity. In these cases, the class action allows the claims of hundreds, if not thousands or millions, of people to be brought in one case rather than numerous cases. Here, one or more individuals represent, or stand in the shoes of, a whole class of individuals.
A class action saves not only the court's time and resources, but also that of all the parties and attorneys involved. Indeed, in many class action claims, it may not make sense for someone to make an individual claim against the negligent party. A class action allows the joinder of numerous claims against the wrongdoer, thereby making the case more efficient. The class action also allows class members to pool their resources and present their most effective case in one proceeding.
