Class Action Litigation
Also known as class suits, or representative actions, class actions are defined as lawsuits in which one of the parties is a group of people who share a common interest represented collectively by representative plaintiffs. A class action lawsuit brings together and disposes thousands of claims at once, which would not happen if individuals were to pursue legal redress on their own. In a group, the value of the claims of the class add up.
Besides lowering litigation costs due to the aggregation of claims, class actions ensure that all the affected plaintiffs receive compensation. Because class actions require much more work than typical civil lawsuits require, they are normally handled by attorneys with experience dealing with complicated and tedious lawsuits. Whether it be defective products, poor employment practices, or environmental liabilities, the lawyers at Knight LLP are ready to take on the challenge.
