Your St. Louis Class Action Lawyers
A class action lawsuit is where a group of people with the same or similar injuries caused by the same product or action, join as a group, and sue the defendant. People file class actions because of defective products, including consumer claims.
A class action normally brings together small claims, that would be impractical or impossible to litigate individually. This makes the process more efficient not only for the thousands of people who have been wronged, but it also allows the defendant to do away with all of the claims at once. For example, if the defendant wins, the class action is thrown out of court and the members of the class are estopped from filing new or individual lawsuits over the same issue against the same defendant. If the class members win, then the defendant is liable for the plaintiffs’ injuries, and the damages awards are split among the members.
