What is a consumer class-action lawsuit?

A consumer class-action lawsuit allows a group of people who suffered similar types of damages to bring multiple claims against the same business, corporation, or government entity in a single lawsuit. A class-action is a useful tool that allows consumers to seek a judicial remedy for injustices that may be too small to pursue on an individual basis.

Consumer class-action cases cover a wide range of legal issues including unfair business practices, false advertising claims, hidden fees, consumer fraud, and breach of warranty.
