Class Action FAQs
We know you have a lot of questions. Here you will find answers to the most common questions we receive from our clients.
Our attorneys have provided this list of commonly asked Class Action questions for your convenience:
What is a class action lawsuit?
Class action lawsuits are filed by a person or a small group of people on behalf of a larger population against a manufacturer, financial institution, or other business. The plaintiffs in the suit will all have been hurt, injured, or otherwise wronged by the defendant. A class action lawsuit allows all people who have been injured or wronged in the same way to obtain compensation for their injuries.
How do I join a class action lawsuit?
In the majority of cases, class members do not need to join a class action lawsuit. They choose to participate by not “opting out,” that is, by not filing their own lawsuit against the defendant. On rare occasions, class members may be asked to opt in to a lawsuit, thus affirming their acknowledgment of and participation in the legal proceedings. Persons who want to be named as primary parties in the lawsuit can choose to hire their own lawyers to intervene in the existing legal matters. Located in Lancaster, our class action lawyers serving Palmdale and Santa Clarita can help class members obtain the compensation they deserve after being wronged by a big company.
How are class action lawyers paid?
Class action lawyers operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that they are entitled to receive a certain percentage of the total settlement and do not get paid unless the lawsuit is won or settled. In some cases, the company that is being sued may also be responsible for paying for any legal fees that class members accrue.
