Class Actions Claims Can Be Pursued With Ease

Many people assume that class actions are difficult claims to pursue and that it is the job of the client to corral large groups of people together to pursue these claims.  Nothing could be father from the truth.  In reality a client comes into a lawyer’s office who may have been harmed by their employer or by a product but their claim is not for a large amount of money.  These are the times that class actions are perfect.  While the lawyer perhaps could not represent the individual by themselves a class action allows an aggregation of claims so that it is economical.  For example, what if some on e is cheated by a bank out of a processing fee of $5.00 that was not properly disclosed.  In this case a filing fee in the court of over $200 would make pursuit of this claim not practical.  On the other hand the bank may pocket millions in fees each year from the illegal practice.  The class action lawyer can take this one client and aggregate his or her claims with thousands of others and pursue it on a class wide basis.  My firm has done this in the employment and consumer settings hundreds of times.  We can be reached at www.unpaidwages.com or email me at eric@kingsleykingsley.com

I look forward to hearing from you.
