Class Action Cases

Chicago, Illinois

In many instances where a large group of people have suffered damages due to the actions of an individual, corporation, or government entity, the courts will allow the claims of each individual victim to be consolidated into one case, called a class action lawsuit. A class action case seeks to recover damages for all the plaintiffs in the class. If successful, all plaintiffs will share in the damages awarded.

Class action cases are particularly advantageous in situations where the damages suffered by each individual plaintiff are relatively small. By consolidating into a class action, it enables these victims to recover the compensation they deserve even though the value of damages to each plaintiff would not justify burdening the court with numerous individual lawsuits.

In addition, class action cases are an important way to hold large corporations accountable for their actions. Often, the total damage award to be split by the class of plaintiffs will be rather large and may serve as a deterrent for companies to engage in these actions in the future.
