Class Action

Orlando Class Action Attorneys – Vaughan Law Group

A class action is a type of lawsuit filed in federal or state courts in which one or more representatives seek monetary reparations on behalf of a large class of people who have common claims. To achieve class action status, a lawsuit must involve a considerable number of potential claimants.

If you have experienced a seemingly small loss, you still deserve compensation from those responsible for your losses. A class action lawsuit may be the best way to protect your legal interests and obtain the compensation you are entitled.

Depending on the claim, there are several advantages to a class action. First, a collective claim may increase the effectiveness and timeliness of the legal process. Second, a class action makes certain that a defendant who inflicts widespread, but minimal, harm against each plaintiff is held liable for the damages they caused. Lastly, a class action evades situations in which various court rulings could produce “incompatible standards” of behavior that the defendant must follow.

All potential claimants must have similar legal issues that are most critical to the lawsuit before a court will grant class action status. Even if you’ve suffered a seemingly small injury or loss, you may be one of thousands of people who have been subject to the same wrongdoing. It is important to know that you may be eligible to be a member of a class action lawsuit to seek compensation for your losses. The following are some examples of class action lawsuit claims:

  • If you’ve purchased a defective product or service
  • If you’ve suffered from a pattern of racial, gender, or age discrimination within a workplace
  • If you’ve suffered an environmental injury from exposure to toxic chemicals in your neighborhood
  • If you’ve been harmed by the unfair business practices of a company or organization
  • If you’ve been victimized by consumer fraud

While the claims in class action lawsuits may vary, there are two constant elements in a class action. All members of the class must share a common legal dispute, and the number of people affected must be so significant that it would be impractical to bring all the individual claims before a court.

Many class action lawsuits often begin as a result of complaints made by a group of people, which affects a large number of other individuals. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective product, consumer fraud, other malfeasance, you may be a potential member of a class action lawsuit.

Orlando Class Action FAQ’s

How does Vaughan Law Group charge fees for a class action claim?

Attorneys fees for Florida and Orlando Class Action Claims are governed by the Florida Bar. Attorneys in Florida representing class action clients (plaintiffs) sometimes need to obtain judicial approval before receiving attorneys fees. Several elements are considered to include, but not limited to, the difficulty of the case, the amount of hours involved, benefits awarded to the class, etc.

How does Vaughan Law Group handle the costs necessary for a successful result in a class action claim?

Vaughan Law Group advances all cost on behalf of its clients and will not recover them from the client unless the case is won at trial or settled. The client only reimburses Vaughan Law Group if that client prevails and receives a monetary award or settlement.

What costs would Vaughan Law Group typically advance for a personal injury claim?

In most injury cases, costs will vary from hundreds of dollars to tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars. These costs are for various needs to include, but not limited to, medical and lay depositions, expert review and testimony, subpoenas, medical records, travel, etc

How long will my class action case last?

This is a difficult question to answer without knowing the specific type of case and the specific facts of your case. As a rule-of-thumb would be within 1 to 5 years depending on the amount of litigation required.

Do I have to go to trial for my class action claim?

Again, the specifics of each case will help decide whether a trial would be advantageous to you. However, you will never HAVE to go to trial; that will be up to you. In most cases, court ordered mediation allows the parties to get together and resolve the case prior to any trials.
