What is a class action lawsuit?

In a typical class action, a plaintiff sues a defendant or a number of defendants on behalf of a group, or class, of absent parties. This differs from a traditional lawsuit, where one party sues another party, and all of the parties are present in court.

Class action lawsuits can give your small claim more opportunities when combined with other similarly affected people. In turn, class action lawsuits help the courts by not having to hear every single small claim that comes their way.

Although standards differ between states and countries, class actions are most common where the allegations usually involve at least 40 people who the same defendant has injured in the same way.

Instead of each damaged person bringing his or her own lawsuit, the class action allows all the claims of all class members, whether they know they have been damaged or not, to be resolved in a single proceeding.
