Class actions are a unique form of litigation where one or more people seek to represent a “class” of people all suffering from the same or similar harm. Not every claim can be certified as a class as there are procedural rules that must be complied with to qualify. Class actions are governed by either the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure or a state law counterpart. Class actions can involve consumer law violations, product liability, breach of contract as well as other statutory violations. If you believe you have been harmed in a way where many others may have been harmed as well, then your claim may qualify to be treated as a class action.
As class actions are a specialized area of law, you will need someone who is experienced with them to handle your claim. Craig E. Rothburd, P.A. is highly experienced in class actions.
