What should you know about class action lawsuits?

As a resident of Louisiana, you have the option to participate in state or countrywide class action lawsuits. But what are they? Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South, LLP, is here to explain the basics of class action lawsuits.

A class action lawsuit takes place when one or more people sue an entity on behalf of a group of people. Every member of the group must share the same or similar complaints, and their number must be high enough to make it inefficient to take each claim to court one by one.

Examples of class action lawsuits can include incidents where many customers were harmed by a business, corporation, or even an individual such as a doctor. Examples can also include the purchase of defective products, harm done to a customer by unfair or unsafe business practices, or taking a drug that did not have all of its potentially dangerous side effects warned for clearly.

The point of a class action lawsuit is to gain compensation for all of the victims so that they can continue their recovery. Usually, this entails splitting compensation among all of the participants, depending on the outcome of the trial.
