A class action is a type of lawsuit in which one or more plaintiffs file and prosecute on behalf of a “class” or a larger group of similarly affected individuals. When the same party injures multiple people, a class action lawsuit may be filed instead of an independent lawsuit. This kind of lawsuit allows a single plaintiff to sue the defendant on behalf of everyone injured or wronged. Rather than filing individual lawsuits against the defendant, which would be time-consuming and expensive, all injured parties may seek justice through a single proceeding in a class action lawsuit. Grouping the individual lawsuits into a class action makes them more easily manageable by the courts by increasing efficiency and lowering litigation costs. This ideally helps victims obtain compensation in a timelier manner.
Once the case has been certified as a class action lawsuit, the court will order that each victim be notified of the class action, and they will become part of the class unless they wish to opt-out. When a settlement is reached, the courts will decide how to distribute the recovery among the lead plaintiff(s) and the remainder of the class.
