If you have been hurt—either physically or mentally—or have been otherwise wronged in some way because of a company or institution, you may not be alone. When many people come together to fight against a large company or government, they stand a greater chance of success. Class actions allow people to go up against a larger, more powerful entity.
A class action is a type of lawsuit where one or two people work with a lawyer to bring justice to themselves and a larger group of people who have had similar experiences (this group is called a “class”). These lawsuits are powerful and cost-effective because they allow people to band together and put forward a single claim. They give individuals access to justice, and the public sees them as a social service, because they hold large companies and governments accountable, helping to change their behaviour.
Class actions come in all shapes and sizes and can include lawsuits for defective products, environmental hazards, pharmaceutical malpractice, securities fraud, and institutional abuse, including physical, sexual, and emotional abuse or neglect.
