Class Action Lawyers New York
What Is a Class Action?
Sometimes, large corporations and other entities cause harm to others, but it can be difficult to take on these large, powerful entities in a lawsuit. Often, the injury each person suffers is small, but the harm affects a broad range of people, and the cumulative effect is significant. For most people, undertaking litigation to seek compensation for a small injury, or litigating against a powerful corporation, is not worth it. But wrongdoers should not get away scot free. Class action lawsuits exist let individuals take on large corporations to seek compensation for their wrongs.
Benefits of Class Actions
In a class action suit, multiple victims of one wrongful act can join together to sue, and divide the recovery among them. This drastically lowers the litigation costs for the individual. It is not worth it to spend thousands of dollars for a recovery of only a few hundred, but joining a class action is simple. Additionally, the large number of people involved means that the big corporation or powerful wrongdoer has to take notice of the suit, so class actions are a useful tool to instigate change.
