Class Action Lawsuits involving Banking Litigation

Often, banks who engage in unethical or illegal practices will violate banking regulations when dealing with numerous customers. In these situations, it may be beneficial to file a class action lawsuit against the bank. In a class action lawsuit, one claim is filed on behalf of many individuals who have suffered similar damages caused by the bank. The plaintiff in the lawsuit will represent the entire class of people who have suffered these damages.

Class action banking litigation cases often make it easier to justify the cost of the lawsuit since the total damages for the entire class will be quite substantial. When pursuing each case individually, the damages may not be significant enough to justify the time and expense of this complex litigation.
