What is a Class Action Lawsuit?

A class action is a legal procedure that allows one or more victims to file and pursue a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group, or class, of persons. A class action lawsuit allows the courts to efficiently manage the claims of a group of people rather than dealing with them individually. A class action lawsuit does not change the rights that each party has in a lawsuit, it is just a more economical way for the victims and the court system to handle the claims.

The objective with any judicial process, including a class action lawsuit, is to be fair, impartial and equitable in all cases. For a case to proceed as a class action lawsuit, it must meet the following criteria:

  1. The number of persons in the class is so numerous that it would be impractical to have individual lawsuits;
  2. there are common questions of fact or law, which dominate any individual issues;
  3. the representative parties will fairly and adequately protect the interests of the class; and
  4. the class action is an appropriate method for the fair and efficient adjudication of the case.

Because your individual interests are protected in a class action lawsuit, you do not lose your right to seek justice against a defendant who has caused you harm.
