Big corporations in Madison can make big mistakes, tragically leaving innocent people with even bigger problems. Maybe a new product was not tested properly for safety before being released, or maybe the company lacks digital security which has led to a major data breach. The Madison class action lawyers with GTW Lawyers can help large groups of victims get the compensation they deserve.

What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?

A class action lawsuit brings a large group of people together to sue an organization or company when they have suffered similar harm, rather than filing an individual lawsuit. These lawsuits provide a way for individuals without the resources to pursue a claim of their own to join together and pursue the case as a large group. A class action lawsuit is generally initiated by one or more people referred to as class representatives.

The representative plaintiff would file a lawsuit to begin the civil procedure. Each defendant can benefit from consolidated claims with the possibility of a significant settlement or financial award. In some class action lawsuits—often ones crossing state lines—more than one firm will team up to create a larger class action.

What Cases Can Lead to a Class Action Lawsuit?

A wide range of legal issues can be addressed through a class action lawsuit. Some of these cases can include:

  • Defective products
  • Consumer protection violations
  • Data breaches
  • Employment disputes
  • Securities fraud
  • Environmental pollution
  • Accidents with mass casualties
  • Civil rights

If you would like to find out if your damages or injury could result in or be part of a class action suit, reach out to one of our Madison class action lawyers today to discuss your case.

Is It Expensive to Join a Class Action Lawsuit?

Most class actions are opt-out lawsuits, meaning that anyone whose legal interests would be represented by the lawsuit is automatically included unless they opt out or decline participation in the claim. Our law firm handles class action lawsuits on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only collect attorney fees if we can recover compensation successfully for the class members.

Our Attorneys Are Dedicated to Protecting Our Clients’ Rights

Top class action attorneys in Madison, WI, can help determine if you can qualify for a class action lawsuit. Federal law regulates class action lawsuits, and qualification depends on several factors. Some of the federal law requirements for a class action lawsuit can include:

  • Suing alone would make it hard to hold the liable party accountable
  • Too many plaintiffs are pursuing a complaint to make individually suing a reasonable action
  • Suing alone would not provide protections for the plaintiff’s interests or rights
  • One or more parties’ experiences clearly represent the class

Many class actions result in substantial pre-trial settlements for class members.

What Can Class Members Recover?

When plaintiffs win a class action, all participating members receive an equal amount of compensation.

An important factor to consider before joining a class action is the degree of harm you suffered in comparison to the rest of the class members. If you feel the losses you suffered are much greater than the other members of the class action, you could potentially receive higher compensation by filing an individual claim and opting out of the class action.
