Have You Been Injured? We're Ready to Fight for You.

Louisville, Kentucky Class Action Lawyer

Class actions are essentially similar to other legal action, but with one key difference: rather than one or two injured parties, class actions are comprised of large numbers of individuals who have suffered some sort of loss, usually economic. Typically cases such as these arise when a corporation has proven itself unwilling or unable to address the claims of its clients or customers, be it large or small. Typically, a few individuals serve as the representative of the entire class of plaintiffs and are represented by a single firm or group of firms. With more plaintiffs and greater funds involved, cases such as these can easily take years to litigate.

Some common class action lawsuits involve defective or deceptive products, including those that may cause injury to young children. Food-borne toxins and contaminants may result in a class action as well, especially if a careless mode of distribution resulted in a number of stricken people. Environmental pollution and its lingering health effects have also spawned a number of actions throughout the state, especially in cases where corporate pollution has resulted in property damage. Finally, investor fraud remains one of the most common sources of class action, particularly in cases where local businesses misrepresent their earnings and financial status to a trusting public.

One of the common misconceptions about class actions in Kentucky is that they always result in an equally divided ‘pot’ of restitution. In fact, courts take a more nuanced approach to remedies here, meaning it is not usual for juries to assign different amounts to different victims depending upon their experience. In a food-borne class action, for instance, a far greater sum would be paid to a woman who was paralyzed by E. Coli than to her neighbor who merely missed a week of work with an upset stomach. Even the originators of the suit may not be entitled to an equal share if a greater percentage of the burden fell on someone else’s shoulders.

Class actions live and die by the skill of the attorneys representing the class. The simple fact is that organizing so many plaintiffs takes a tremendous amount of work, including depositions, document collection and medical histories.
