Could You Be Part of a Class Action Lawsuit?

Most of us never think about being part of a class action lawsuit. However, if you’ve been harmed by something that has also affected many others, it could be that a class action suit is a way to receive compensation. Here are a few facts about class action lawsuits to better understand what’s involved.

What is a Class Action Suit?

A class action lawsuit is when one person, or a small group of people, files suit against a large corporation on behalf of a large group of people. While an individual might have a hard time winning a suit against the deep pockets of a big business, when a large group has been harmed, filing as a class action suit can be more successful. Often, when the court sees the volume of people affected, they can agree that harm has been done to all. The defendants in class action suits can range from insurance companies, the mortgage industry, banking facilities, auto manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and other corporations.

By joining together as a group, the plaintiffs have the advantage of the power of numbers. In addition, class action suits save time for the court system and cost less than suing individually. Another advantage of being part of a class action suit is it can allow you to collect on damages that may be too small for individual cases. For example, if a bank charges predatory and illegal fees of less than $100 per customer, it isn’t practical for one person to sue for $100; but if the class action has 100,000 members, it becomes a suit with $10 million. In addition, all the costs, from lawyer fees to expert witnesses, are spread out among the plaintiffs.

Bruce Millar The Millar Law Firm Atlanta, GA

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
