Class Actions

Lake Charles Class Action Lawyers

Class action lawsuits are brought by large numbers of individuals as a group to assert their claims against a common defendant. Typically, they are brought by individuals and consumers who have been harmed by corporations. There are many kinds of class action suits. This is just a short list:

  • Consumers injured by large product manufacturing companies (injuries caused by medical devices, pharmaceuticals or medicines with dangerous side effects)
  • Employees mistreated by employers (discriminatory hiring/firing, pay disputes, or broken employment contracts)
  • Consumers or investors injured by fraudulent or unfair practices (securities fraud, defective products, or bad faith insurance actions)
  • Homeowners or residents harmed by environmental toxins or dumping
  • Unfair trade or business practices
