In such cases, tthey can frequently get away with making millions, if not hundreds of millions of dollars, if they do it to enough people. With class action litigation, consumers have a much more realistic chance of recovering money that they have been defrauded out of by joining their claims together with other consumers in the same situation.
In order to pursue a class action lawsuit, the group of individuals that are filing the claim must show that they have similar financial damages and a common legal claim. Our Fort Lauderdale consumer rights attorneys can help you prepare for the process. The usual procedure is that a lead plaintiff, or a few lead plaintiffs, will file the lawsuit on behalf of all individuals who were similarly wronged by the corporation or entity.
