Class Action Lawsuit

Jackson Mississippi Class Action Lawsuit Attorneys

A class action is a type of lawsuit or action where one of the parties is a group of people who are represented collectively by a member of that group, often times by a single law firm or in same cases by many different Jackson Mississippi Class Action Lawsuit Attorneys.  In a typical class action, a plaintiff sues a defendant or a number of defendants on behalf of a group, also referred to as a class. This differs from a traditional lawsuit, where one party sues another party for their negligent act, and all of the parties are present in court.  Although standards differ between states and are often unique to the situation at hand, class actions are most common where the allegations involve a large number of people who have been injured by the same defendant in the same way, often the same transaction or occurrence.  Instead of each injured person bringing their own lawsuit, which is not feasible and practical in most circumstances, the class action allows all the claims of all class members to be resolved in a single proceeding or action.
