A consumer class action is a legal action brought by a class action lawyer on behalf of a large number of people with similar legal claims involving common questions of law and fact. They share a common interest and are joined together in a group (the class) to sue a wrongdoer, usually a company or an a organization. Their legal claims, which are advocated by the representative class action lawyer, usually involve a consumer product, a fraudulent or misleading business practice, or a deceptive financial practice. Many consumer class actions involve financial issues such as improper billing practices, overcharges, and failure to honor warranties. A product liability class action is a class action brought by a class action lawyer on behalf of a large number of people, ordinarily with claims of negligence pertaining to products, policies, or conditions. A product liability class action typically involves a product defect and the central claims in a product liability class action usually involve design defects, manufacturing defects, or marketing defects. The definition of “product” is very broad and may include virtually anything that is manufactured, although it also may include livestock, produce, pets, and real estate. A product liability class action is a specific type of consumer class action. Certain product liability actions may also involve personal injury which may be litigated by a personal injury lawyer.

Note that Class Action World does not take any position on any class action, and Class Action World does not offer opinions or advice on any class action. Moreover, Class Action World is not associated with any law firm and receives no compensation from law firms for referrals. All law firms receiving certification forms or plaintiff contact information from Class Action World are selected solely based upon the following criteria:

  • Prior experience. For example, if an individual action or class action involves a failure to pay overtime, Class Action World will search for law firms that have previously litigated this issue.
  • Cost Mitigation. For example, if an individual action or class action involves a New York company, Class Action World will search for law firms in the New York region in order to minimize the amount of the attorneys’ reimbursable (from the class members’ settlement fund) air travel, hotel, and other costs.
  • Prior Results. We evaluate prior class action settlement results (weeding out those law firms who, in our view, favor quick small dollar or coupon settlements in order to collect a quick legal fee).
  • Attorney Fees. We weed out those law firms whose fees we consider to be excessive in relation to the benefits to members of the class.
  • Use Of Experts. We weed out those law firms using in-house “experts” (to generate incremental law firm revenue) as opposed to hiring the most qualified outside experts.
  • Law Firm Size And Case Load. We have observed that the size of a law firm does not ordinarily matter (there are numerous small law firms that do outstanding work), although its case load does matter. We, therefore, assess the law firm’s class action case load to evaluate whether or not the law firm will be able to properly and expediently litigate the new class action matter.
