Class Action Lawsuits
With 20 years of legal experience, the Andry Law Group has acquired extensive skills in handling class action lawsuit cases. We routinely represent numerous clients looking to file a class action lawsuit regionally and nationally. Our firm takes pride in seeing clients receive the compensation they are entitled to by law. A class action provides a number of advantages over individual lawsuits, including less costly litigation, avoidance of incompatible court rulings in multiple cases, and a more efficient legal process. Often, legal expenses are too great for a single individual or small business to pursue a claim. A class action lawsuit allows people to seek justice and compensation who otherwise would not be able to do so.
When a class of people experience similar harm or unfair treatment from a company or industry, a class action suit names specific claimants who are representative of the entire group’s claims.
A class action lawsuit may address many different types of issues involving company negligence or wrongdoing, such as:
- Toxic waste dump
- Illegal consumer practices
- Dangerous pharmaceutical drugs
- Defective products
- Employment discrimination
- Unfair business practices
Participating in a class action usually requires waiving individual rights to sue. However, most class action lawyers seek monetary compensation based on the greatest damage incurred. The suit may pursue compensatory damages such as pain and suffering, loss of life, illness, financial loss, or property damage along with punitive damages for illegal or criminal acts that harm health or safety.
If you miss a class action filing deadline, the Andry Law Group can still submit a claim on your behalf. The court determines whether or not to accept a late proof of claim. Contact us to learn more about open class action lawsuits or other class action settlements we have achieved.
