Class actions are unique legal mechanisms that protect groups of people from nefarious business practices and dangerous products. A class-action lawsuit can help hold the responsible party accountable. These types of cases generally assist with larger groups of people who have been victimized but whose damages do not add up to a significant amount. These groups of people can team up to form a larger group of victims, which improves their chances of receiving compensation.
