Keeping an Eye Out for Potential Class Actions
If you believe you have been treated unfairly, you should consider whether what is happening to you might be happening to others. Following are some examples of situations where there might be potential for a class action:
- If you received a form letter making false claims such as saying your debt is not eligible for bankruptcy, it is likely that the same letter was sent to others.
- If you received a recorded phone message that violates any consumer protection statute, it is likely that other people received similar calls.
- If a company such as a car dealership pulled your credit report without your authorization, it is possible that they have a policy of doing that to everyone.
Our firm can explore whether you have a potential class action claim. Even if you do not, we can pursue your individual claim if you are being treated unfairly.
Seeking Compensation for Your Treatment and Your Trouble
If we are successful at getting your case certified as a class action and obtaining a verdict or settlement in your favor, the defendant will likely be required to pay compensation to everyone who was harmed by their mistreatment.
In many class action cases, the lead plaintiff ends up receiving additional compensation for going through the trouble of bringing the lawsuit.
This can be a major advantage if you are the first person to bring illegal conduct to the attention of the courts. Don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your potential class action consumer protection claim with an experienced attorney.
