Class action lawsuits are vital to consumer justice. If you suffered damages due to the negligence of a corporation or an insurance company, and you believe many others have also suffered the same damage due to the same type of negligence, you and your fellow plaintiffs can seek justice for your injuries through a class action claim.
In these situations, trust Duncan Law Group to represent your Chicago class action claim. From the negotiating table to the courtroom, we have the skills, resources, and power necessary to face large corporate legal teams and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Class action claims involve an individual or group of plaintiffs, known as class representatives, filing a claim against an entity on behalf of a large number of other affected individuals. Class action plaintiffs can easily number in the hundreds or thousands.
Before you can file, the court must certify you, your fellow representatives, and your fellow plaintiffs as a class. The requirements vary from state to state, but generally, you will need to prove the following to certify your class:
By filing one lawsuit, class action claims help reduce the number of individual cases. People who qualify for class action settlements will have the choice to opt-out of the lawsuit or file an individual claim. At the conclusion of the case, the court will distribute the settlement evenly between all plaintiffs.
While many people associate class action lawsuits with defective products, you can also file a class action lawsuit against an insurance company that commits negligence toward you and other policyholders.
