Class Action FAQS
Below are answers to some commonly asked questions regarding the class action process and individuals’ rights when having a dispute with a company. If you have additional questions, please contact us by filling out the form to your right or by calling us toll-free at (866) 981-4800.
Class actions are lawsuits brought to protect many people who have been impacted by the same problem. For example, a class action lawsuit could be brought on behalf of everyone who:
- Bought the same defective product,
- Was billed for the same unauthorized charges,
- Saw the same deceptive advertising, or
- Worked at a company that violated employment laws.
Even though class actions often help hundreds or thousands of people, it does not take that many people to get started. Instead, class actions often begin when a single person who has been wronged steps forward. To speak with one of our class action attorneys, fill out the form to the right or call toll-free (866) 981-4800.
If you are having problems with a company—whether it’s your retailer, a company you bought stock in, or even your employer—many other people may well be having the same problems. A class action suit is often a good solution in these situations because it can allow thousands of people across wide distances to all benefit from a single case.
It does not take a lot of people to begin a class action. Class action lawsuits often start when one motivated person decides to take action. Talk with one of our class action attorneys by filling out the form to the right or by calling toll-free (866) 981-4800.
Laws Protecting Consumers
Federal and state consumer protection laws protect against a variety of unfair billing practices. While some laws apply only to specific practices, others, like California’s Unfair Competition Law, can help in a variety of situations. This flexibility is important since unauthorized charges and billing fraud can come in a variety of forms, including:
- Hidden Fees
- Misleading Charges
- Cramming (placing unauthorized or misleading charges on a telephone bill)
- Unauthorized Charges
- Slamming (switching an account from one company to another without permission)
