Consumer Class Action Lawsuits
Consumer class action cases may involve thousands of people who want to hold accountable and remedy the various wrongdoings of larger corporations. However, some larger companies have been notorious for keeping cases in court for years with their class action litigation experts.
Defective products can injure or, in some circumstances, even be fatal. Damages may range from the cost of replacing a defective product to medical expenses and property damage, or even death caused by the product. A corporation will often fight to take this one case at a time instead of having multiple plaintiffs coming together for a consumer class action lawsuit. The tobacco and automotive industries have been hit with large-scale class actions in the past. Big tobacco corporations had knowingly advertised their products to a younger audience. The automotive industry has also faced lawsuits for defective vehicles, including faulty brakes or a model’s susceptibility to rolling over.
False advertising is a deceptive business practice where a company selling a product or service does not provide potential buyers with a “complete picture” of that product or service. In the case of Red Bull’s class action, the plaintiffs were all customers of the energy drink giant. They made inaccurate claims, so customers were entitled to a case of free Red Bull or a small payout of around $10. False advertising can also lead to unfair competition if other brands are unwilling to mislead consumers.
Consumer fraud is rampant in the digital age with promises of products that manufacturers do not deliver. Price gouging is another form of fraud that often requires consumer protection. Unfortunately, some companies actively defraud customers with no regard for their experience in the slightest. Consumers that have been victims of such fraudulent practices by a similar company or individual can file a mass tort where there is not just one plaintiff but several of them.
Data is so valuable that it can lead to many issues for consumers in the wrong hands. Information security is the responsibility of any company that takes the personal information of its customers seriously. The severity of some data breaches has led to millions of dollars in settlements paid. According to estimations, data breaches led to an exposure of over 740 million online records in 2013, making it the worst year for data breaches in U.S. history.
