Class Action Lawsuits
In personal injury law, a class action lawsuit is a case in which a large number of people have experienced the same or similar injuries or harms. These can be physical, emotional and/or cognitive injuries but they can also be where the victims’ information or reputation (to name just two other kinds of injuries) is harmed or damaged. It is common for class action lawsuits to be under the umbrella of product liability law, where many consumers have been harmed by the same or similar product, good, or service.
