Insurance Class Actions
Most people don’t realize how a class action can get started: by one person: that’s right, one person. If an insurance problem is an across-the-board problem that one person or business is experiencing, a class action can be an option to investigate.
A class action is not a hundred or a thousand different cases. It is one case. And that one case needs to have features that make it suitable to become a class action. One main feature is that the person or business starting the case has a problem that is substantially similar to a problem that others are experiencing.
A second requirement is that the other people or businesses who have a similar problem are people or businesses of the same type as the class action plaintiff (the one who starts and files the case).
These are tricky waters, indeed. A law firm that undertakes a class action case needs many years of seasoning in this field, along with the substantive knowledge of the law that will control or guide the case.
