Georgia Consumer Product Class Action Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
Corporate negligence in many forms can harm consumers, especially when it comes to poor products. Consumer products that are defective, harmful or dangerous can cause injuries, fatalities or financial harm. When many customers of the same company are all harmed from a consumer product, these customers have the right to seek compensation. One option is to pursue a consumer product class action lawsuit.
What makes a class action lawsuit different than pursuing a lawsuit individually is cost. This is very important in consumer products as the losses to each individual may not be substantial. An electronic device that does not work correctly or quickly needs repairs may only cost $50. The loss is not enough to pursue a lawsuit for one customer or even 100 customers due to the cost of litigation. However, when tens of thousands of customers have had the same issue, a class action lawsuit can recover damages for all the plaintiffs in the claim and the litigation cost is shared.
Lead Plaintiff Benefits in Class Action Lawsuits
Why would you spend the time and effort to begin a consumer product class action lawsuit if all you will gain is $50 in replacement costs? The fact is, most people would not put forth the effort. Lead plaintiffs, usually the first people to come forward with a consumer product issue, can be awarded a monetary sum for their participation. In some cases, this award can be substantial, making it worth the effort for those who start a class action lawsuit against a manufacturer of a defective consumer product.
