What are the Advantages of a Class Action Lawsuit?

id your Iowa employer fail to reimburse your expenses or fail to pay your overtime wages? Were you not allowed to take your rest breaks according to the law, but were not reimbursed for them? Did your employer subject you to a discriminatory environment? If you answered yes to any of these questions, chances are you are not alone. These are a few examples of reasons why employees often turn to class action lawsuits in Iowa and throughout the nation.

Class action lawsuits are not just for employees that are discriminated against, but also for consumers who have been injured by defective products and equipment. If you were injured by a product, if your child was injured by a toy, or if your car's airbags or other equipment failed to perform as they should have, then you may have a class action lawsuit. 

When other people have the same complaint as you, or have been harmed or injured in the same manner by a company or organization, then you may want to consider a class action lawsuit.

There are many advantages of a class action lawsuit over an individual suit, including:

  • Legal costs are less when pursuing a class action lawsuit because everyone pools their resources together, lowering the cost of litigation. 
  • Consistent settlements are given to everyone in a class action lawsuit. Because one judge makes the decision over the case, the settlements received by all plaintiffs will be consistent. 
  • Class action lawsuits are typically efficient, saving time and money for everyone involved. 
  • Bringing together hundreds or thousands of claims into one class action suit canhelp you fight corporate giants, as there is power in numbers.
  • Typically there is no out-of-pocket expense for you. The class action attorneys generally advance all the fees and work on a contingency basis. 

Negligent actions on the part of an organization can hurt a number of people. If you were injured by a defective product or victimized by a negligent employer, you should consider the benefits of filing a class action lawsuit. Class action lawsuits are for anyone with workplace issues, consumer issues, product liability concerns, and more.
