What It is
Class actions are lawsuits that allow a large number of people with a common interest in a matter – usually a claim against a particular company – to join together as a group to bring a claim against that company.
Class actions offer a number of advantages, namely the ability to combine a large number of individualized claims into one representative lawsuit. This can greatly reduce the cost to the individual as well as streamline the litigation process by combining the claims. Another advantage of the class action is that it ensures a defendant - who engages in widespread harm, but does so minimally against each individual plaintiff – must compensate all of the individuals for their injuries.
